    My friend's iPhone will show up while she is at work. Where is the form she can leave on her door to authorize them to drop it off without a signature? I tried googling a bit and found nothing.

    Did she order through Apple? The form can be printed from the order page.

    I personally don't recommend signing such release forms. You basally give the right to have the UPS guy to leave you an empty box in front of your house/apt. And you are liable for the empty box. It is a $850+ iPhone. You can probably have it hold at the nearest UPS distribution center. Just my recommendations. If the phone is gone missing. Apple nor UPS will give you the money nor the phone back.

    Sprint doesn't require signatures for their packages and leaves it up to the shipping carrier to decide if one is required at the time of delivery. I used to do their Order Support stuff via chat and had this question all the time. We usually just told the customers to leave a note on the front door for them to leave the packages or hold the package at one of their facilities since Sprint doesn't require anything.

    Ouch, would love to get the list of Sprint customers and follow the UPS truck around on Friday.

    You can write on paper and sign it that you want them to leave it outside, would be a good idea to specify a safer place - not the best idea though. Hold it at the depot and pick it up, would be a better idea.

    Oh, I actually would leave her both the brown box and the iPhone box without the iPhone. Is that too much? Thank you release form.

    :p
    Sprint has a policy set in place for lost or stolen packages so if it doesn't get delivered, they can file this claim and Sprint will take care of it for you. You just have to file a police report and provide it to Sprint so they can block the device from being used. Too bad you'll be in the back of the queue now for the device since all iPhone 6 Plus devices are 4-6 weeks with them.

    Yeah, the wait would suck. But that means I get another iPhone when she gets the second one. :D
