So, I guess when UPS says, "Delivery by 3 PM," it's just a wild guess.
How much past 3 is it where you are? Mine still has two hours.
yeah, im pretty sure they are delivering millions of iphones in one day - not just yours.
Cant expect anything to be on time today.
It's almost 1pm and mine is still stuck at "Destination Scan" at my local city. Really unsure if they can fulfill their delivery promise today.
Im not happy with UPS. Ive seen 5-6 FedEx trucks and 1 DHL on my street so far today. Does UPS not use different drivers for business and residential for some reason?
Yeah...the local UPS guy is not delivering "millions of iPhones." This is their business, we're not talking about a natural disaster or weather delay.
They probably have "all hands on deck" approach today, having people work on there usual day off to accommodate millions of extra packages in the pipeline.
On another forum, they didn't deliver mine and some others today, will be next week now.
UPS are by far the worst courier.
Your "local" guy has probably had to pick up parts of someone elses route today, or someone else has taken part of his... I have worked in the parcel delivery business in the past.
Millions of extra packages in one day effects the entire office and route. Im sure they even had people out later than normal YESTERDAY to clear the pipeline.
They also have a union that fights against unwanted overtime - theres alot that goes into your iphone getting delivered and those "delivered by" date/time are ESTIMATES. Its on you if you think its a guarantee. Only guarantees are for priority or overnight shipping.
If it was an "estimate" it would say, "estimated time of delivery," not, "To Be Delivered by 3:00 PM"
If a logistics company can't deal with the logistics of delivering millions of packages, worldwide, what good are they?
FedEx and DHL seem to have no issues getting packages delivered on time.
Well, I guess they just are not that good. and btw - all the parcel delivery services are late from time to time without mass-world wide launches.
Hopefully you get your phone today so that you can complain about something else tomorrow.
UPS was a different driver for me today. They usually come around 2-3pm, but he came at 10am
I had the apple release on my door, and my driver said it was a good thing I was home because they were told not to leave it without an actual signature. I have mychoice to and also had shipment release already checked.
I am glad I was home because I would have been pissed if they didn't leave it with all of those things done beforehand.
Pick up wise today UPS was awesome! They didn’t open till 9am but let me pickup my phone around 7:47am!
And I'm sure you'll have another opportunity to share your valuable, parcel delivery "knowledge" over the next few weeks.
You'll get it today. It is just a phone. Complain to UPS via one of their options instead of posting a useless thread on MacRumors. There have been plenty today as is.
The UPS truck was driving all around my house for the last four hours. Now it's gone in completely the other direction, and it's saying I'm supposed to receive my item in an hour.
like mentioned earlier, they are using multiple drivers. I am pretty sure some are just delivering iphones.
I hate dealing with ups, they’re always late when I order something like 7/8 pm late. Yet I always see their trucks in my neighborhood in the early afternoon.
That’s why I just pick everything up at the hub.
I should clarify that the truck I "saw" was not visually, but the one that actually has my iPhone on Follow My Delivery. It was in multiple neighborhoods within a mile of my house all morning. Now it's on the other side of town.
Always pick up at a ups center, if possible, especially for Friday deliveries of items you really want to spend the weekend playing with, or last minute event tickets.
These packages are overnight shipping
Gawd, reading these types of threads and you would think you’re reading the lives of babies.
I get this way sometimes, too, but it is a legitimate miracle that your phone can get from Louisville, KY to your front door in like 24 hours.
You'll get your phone and everything will be great. Excited to see/hear all y'all's impressions!
My UPS Tracking originally said out for delivery at 8:25am, in the last 30 minutes, the 8:25am has been erased and it says now out for delivery at 3:30pm... What is going on here?
Mine said delivery by 7:00 PM all along, so my 4:45 delivery was a pleasant surprise. Opening momentarily!
