    So I am ordering my Apple Watch Thursday night and will be having it shipped to my apartment. I will be working from 7:45 AM until 3:15 PM and was curious if I will need somebody to sign for the package? I could always have one of my neighbors sign for it, but I would have to know in advance to put their apartment number.

    I'm willing to wager yes, a signature will be required

    once you place your order, you can go online and print a "pre-sign" for delivery form. You either need to leave that or have someone sign for it. They do require a signature though.

    Wouldn't your apartment sign for it?

    I live in an apartment too, and since this is such a big delivery (price wise) that they will definitely need a signature, or a pre-sign form. I plan on printing one out and waiting for the delivery person outside all day.

    If you won't be around, they'll just keep the package at their facility and you can go there and pick it up. Thats how I get most of my more expensive stuff, as I cant be bothered to wait at my house all day listening for a truck to come down the road.

    I let them leave it on my doorstep =/

    I guess I just trust my neighborhood.

    I would say the majority of people wouldn't. Probably partly because very few people actually know their neighbors well or at all.

    Is correct.

    You guys are probably US based too, You're a friendlier bunch all round I think.

    I'm in the US, and I certainly wouldn't want a package as valuable as the apple watch left with a neighbor or just sitting at the door. And I would imagine most people would feel the same way. Except possibly in rural areas where there isn't a neighbor for a mile or so.

    I'm coincidentally on vacation that week, so I lucked out. I usually miss all of the packages that I need to sign for, as I'm not home.

    It depends on the neighborhood. I've lived in places where neighbors are like extended family (especially if you all have been living there for years and years) and we take out each others trash, tend to their pets when they are on vacation, warn them if their cars are parked illegally, etc. Other times, you never speak to neighbors at all or you have a bad relationship with them because they are old and they dont like to hear you party at night, etc.
