    And did you have expedited shipping? My last one came really early but I don't know if that was by design or if I just got lucky with that day's route. I'm trying to figure out if I need to make other arrangements because I don't want it left outside my door.

    It didn't come, I went and picked it up at the UPS store.

    I think you'll find the time of day your device gets delivered on really depends on your local route. It's not like Apple devices have some sort of special delivery times with UPS, FedEx, etc.

    Mine came late around 7 pm, but this means nothing as everyone's delivery time is different.

    I figured express shipping may have something to do with it. Normally UPS comes super late to my house, but all my Apple products have come before 9am.

    I had standard shipping, but Apple upgraded it automatically to Expedited shipping. It came a little before noon at my UPS Store (where all my mail is sent, since I have box there).

    I think it was about 10:15 am EDT.

    FEDEX delivered it with a delivery time of 8 pm, but when I got home from work, it was on the doorstep. I requested a delivery notification, so when I checked my email it said 10:31 am.

    Sprint upgraded me to expedited shipping and it arrived 2 days later at 4PM, 10 minutes after I had left for an appointment! Had to wait to get back home before opening my baby!

    So it got dropped off without a signature, huh.. Were you okay with that? I understand you can pre-sign for delivery online..

    Although I live in a very nice neighborhood, I'd be skittish about leaving a new phone on my doorstep all day unattended.

    The more important question is, "did you see a double rainbow when your iPhone was delivered?"

    Every delivery I get always comes at pretty much the same time. No matter what I've ordered. UPS always delivers late in the afternoon and FedEx always delivers at lunch time.

    Nope. If it is a residence, UPS can take up to and even later than 8pm to deliver. Express will maybe get it to your house a day early but it will be ruled by residential protocol unless it was sent over night express.:rolleyes:

    Typically speaking, your home deliveries will all be delivered at similar times from one day to the next, the drivers run pre-planned routes and they don't alter them unless there are extenuating circumstances.

    FedEx for me delivers early in the morning, UPS on the other hand delivers around 6pm.

    If you are referring to Businesses, they also run on a pre-determined schedule, but if you requested FedEx overnight early AM or UPS Next Day Air (not saver), you may receive an earlier delivery.

    Apparently my area is dead last on their route. The truck came by late, just before 9PM .

    I did a pre-delivery "Leave on the doorstep" notice online.

    What's interesting to me was that it said delivery would be 8 pm. I left a notice on the website saying that if after 4 pm, delivery to doorstep is fine, but no one will be there to sign before 4 on 10/11. When I got home, it wasn't where I suggested they place it. It was on the ground in front of the step to the door level, and had been there since 10:30-10:45 am. I wasn't happy about it being out in the sun all day, but obviously I was happy to get the phone.
