Will fedex leave my phone at the doorstep without a pre-sign?

No. You either have to sign for the package yourself or have the pre-sign on the door. Otherwise they'll reattempt delivery another day.

Edit: I stand corrected. Disregard the above post :eek:

There is no signature required for FedEx deliveries. They left mine along with thousands of others (check the Pre-Order thread)...

My FedEx order from Verizon stated an "indirect signature" was required. I could leave a handwritten notice with signature or use the "shipment release form" on the door and they would leave it, IF the driver felt it was safe to do so. If I chose to do nothing, they would attempt another delivery the next business day. Just my experience.

When my phone got delivered on friday the Fedex driver rang the door bell and left it on the door step and I didnt sign anything. He never even waited to make sure anyone was home or to make sure it got in side. Its a good thing I was home and waiting for it.

How bout it?
FedEx does whatever the shipper wants even to.

All of my Apple packages delivered via FedEx have required a signature or a pre-sign. The iPhone 5 that AT&T just shipped me via FedEx needed no signature or pre-sign.

Who'd you order from?

I ordered from at&t so I would guess they would do the same for me as they did for you.

FedEx in my neighborhood is notorious for dropping the package at the door without ringing the bell & then taking off in a hurry. I once had to return a whole box of research books back to Amazon because the FedEx guy delivered them late on a Friday to the front porch, out of sight of the window and it rained all nite that nite. The box & books were a soggy ruined mess; Amazon was great about it, filling the order again and instructing me how to return the ruined books to them at no charge to me. I hope FedEx caught hell.

The point of this story is that my iPhone 5 came in a distinctly phone sized box, barely bigger than the iPhone box itself. If a box like that is left lying around your front door & someone recognizes it, you're SOL. :( :mad: :(
