    assuming my 4S will come friday and not early, i may not be home at the time UPS shows up to my house. The only person there will be our maid. Will UPS allow her to sign for the package or does it have to be a resident of the household?

    If he/she speaks English, you should be good to go.... :D

    Seriously, all you need is a warm body. Think Weekend at Bernie's....

    Any adult that can open a door can sign for your phone. Don't know about your maid, but it would be a very nice bonus for my maid, I may never see her again after Friday.

    So what's to stop people waiting in the back yard of their neighbours house, coming round the side and signing for it, then walking off with a free phone?

    Or following a truck, stopping in a driveway and signing for something and then leaving when they do?

    Nothing, really. And I guarantee you there will be plenty of that going on Friday...

    My driver has been doing something recently and I have known him for years on a first name basis. He now asks for the name on the package before releasing it to me. He knows he doesn't have to do this with me, but I guess he has to just in case UPS decides to question him.

    if you have a good ups guy, they won't let that happen. these guys have their routes sometimes for years and they get to know people. they will ask for id. some shady guy lurking in the bushes definitly throws a flag and the ups guy will be off to the next stop.

    thats why I'm not going to even try to leave that pre signed form on my door. I live in a pretty good neighborhood, but I'm not taking any chances
