If you can't be there to sign for it...?
So from what I've read someone has to be there physically to sign for it. I know I won't be home to sign for it, and fedex website says that you can't request to have it held there. Anyone have any idea or experience as to how you get it, then?

In my experience, the driver leaves a notice on your door which says that a delivery was attempted, and that they will attempt to deliver again, or you can pick it up at the local FedEx facility in the evening. I think the hours for pick up will be on the notice. I'm in the same boat (If I ever get a shipping notice!).

Ive run into this problem in the past a lot. I always leave a note that says I authorize FedEx to leave package at front door with the tracking number and my name and signature and they have always just left it.
Worst case you down to your local FedEx location between 7P and 9P that night and pick it up.

this is from the FedEx site
Indirect Signature Required: FedEx obtains a signature from someone at the delivery address; from a neighbor, building manager or someone at a neighboring address; or the recipient can also leave a FedEx Door Tag authorizing release of the package without anyone present.
and i do realize the last part some people said that you cant do but there is some options for you...i might call my neighbor and ask if they will sign it for me.

"Indirect Signature" does allow you to leave a signed note for the delivery to be left where you indicate. However, "Direct Signature" is just what it says, an adult (over the age of 18-years-old) has to be there to physically sign for the package.
As far as I know, all of the iPhones are being sent requiring a "Direct Signature." That means that someone has to be there to sign for it. I know that there are always exceptions, especially if you know your delivery person, but technically someone will have to sign for the package or it won't be delivered.
P.S. I've tried and in my experience, I haven't been able to get any door tags.

From my understanding...FedEx is stating Indirect Signature - you can leave a note or have someone sign
UPS is requiring a Direct Signature - someone has to physically be available to sign or you can pick it up from the local hub.
