    So my iPhone is currently sitting at my local FedEx facility. Not 100% sure what that means but does anyone know what the chances of me being able to go to that facility today and just pick it up? Because if thats a possibility then there is no chance I'm not doing that.

    none to slim. In that order.

    "At local facility" means it's in a distribution center that services your zipcode... the only line to really get excited about on the tracking is "out for delivery" - which means its on a truck in town where you are.

    This is what I figured. I just thought I'd ask on here before making a phone call.

    I used to work at the FexEx sorting facility where it says my iPhone currently is...

    Feb 5, 2011 7:46 PM
    At dest sort facility
    ELIZABETH, NJ

    This is a huge factory and the phone is on the truck that is going to go out in my area tomorrow to do deliveries. There is NO WAY to go there and pick it up.

    Come on people, I know its exciting, but you can wait another 24 hours. Relax and watch some hockey on NBC today and the superbowl tonight!

    I'm pretty sure you can pick it up because they cant stop you from picking up your own package, thats just dumb. Try taking some ID and proof and convince them hard enough.

    The ID thing will only fly if they've tried to deliver once, and only at the facility noted on the attempted delivery notice. Why? It's called liability. Their processes an procedures are designed to keep them from getting sued.

    That's just plain horrible. If you give a whole lot of proof to show that its your package they should give it to you. How are they even going to get sued if you show them proof that its your package? Whoever's name is on the package is the one that should come and pick it up and stuff.

    Does anyone know what time the FedEx trucks leave for delivery in the morning? Mine says expected tomorrow by 4:30pm so I am thinking I won't get it in the morning but just want to make sure I am awake anyway!

    They leave whenever they need to to be at the first stop on their route after 8AM. Depending on your driver's route, and if he or she has any "by 10:30am" packages which get delivered first... if you are between two of those "by10:30" stops - you might get yours before then, but I'm guessing after 10:30am... I'll be available after 8AM.

    You will get a door tag and you call the number on that. Tell them to hold it and they will say "Ok, come here after X:XXPM and pick it up".

    My delivery guy is always great and simply writes on the slip "available for pickup after xxxx". I have never had to call - makes it easy!

    Does anybody know if it's possible to call Fed Ex and change to destination address? I remember reading earlier someone saying that they were able to do it with UPS...

    lucky. I have class at 9 to 11 and then again at 1 to 3pm I hope I get it in that hour and a half I get to be home between classes. And Fedex and UPS don't usually come until the afternoons at my house. :/

    I can't drop my son off at school, which is 5 minutes away, until 8 am. I am going to cry if I miss the delivery driver in those 5 minutes when he never shows up that early!

    Seriously? They leave whenever they have to leave to get to their deliveries. I'm pretty sure 1) It's different in different places 2) They don't always visit the same places at the same time. I mean, sheesh

    So I called FedEx customer service and they said that you couldn't pick it up until a delivery attempt has already been made or you request them to hold the package, but in that case, you can't get it until the day after the estimate delivery date.

    I've had FedEx packages come, I missed them, and picked them up the same day at least twice.

    Well obviously they don't go to the same place every time, I was wondering if there was a set start time for them though.

    I chased down a UPS truck once. Hunted him all over the neighborhood till I found him. He had to let me sign for it... I wasn't about to take no for an answer.
