Why would they do this?
So close but yet so far. My expected delivery for my iphone was today at 3pm. Got home today..no iPhone. Checked my tracking number and my phone was on a truck. Called up fed-ex to see whats up and they were very nice. They said due to the high demand they were not able to get all their orders out. I then asked if i could drive to the warehouse to get it since the truck had already come back. She asked for my info and such and then said "im sorry but verizon wont let us do that, we have to try and deliver it at least once". Why on earth would verizon do that? My estimated date now has changed to the 8th. Im bummed! Has this happened to anyone else? too many iphones for fed-ex/ups to handle in your area?

You need to call fedex back and raise hell. That is unacceptable. Not your fault that they can deliver fast enough to get it to you. Verizon paid them for overnight delivery and they failed to do that.

There is no reason why you shouldn't be able to pick the phone up at FedEx's will call. That is BS, like the others stated above, call and raise hell and I bet you will be able to go get it. Let us know the outcome.

I went to my local Fedex on Friday and added a hold. The lady typed something into her computer and printed something off. She said I could pick it up Monday around 9am or anytime I saw the info change to my town. It was changed at 8:20am. They open at 8:30 am. I was there at 8:32am. She asked for I'd and handed me my phone. There was no delivery attempt at all. I'm not sure what's going on with those of you that have problems. I'm very pleased to have had things work out for me but I wish they had for you all as well.

This happened to me with UPS today. Even though they attempted one delivery, they said that Verizon wouldn't allow pickup. I went to the hub anyway and they gave it to me, no questions asked.

Call FedEx now and raise hell .. You PAID for OVERNIGHT shipping (it was free but they dont know) ... Ask to speak to a supervisor and get down to the local FedEx office by 9PM. Dont take NO for an answer.
