    For those of us who are lucky enough to have an estimated ship date of tomorrow, how early are you planning on waking up to wait for the package?

    I am personally going to get up at 8am and go wait downstairs even though mine may not come until 4:30PM via FedEx. I just don't want to miss it as I am extremely busy on Tuesdays. So how early are the rest of you getting up?

    FedEx in my town usually comes between 12:00 and 2:00 in the afternoon, so that's not really a problem. But knowing I will be like a kid on Christmas morning, I will probably be up around 6:00AM like I would do when I was 8.

    Super Bowl, I'll be up late, but try to get up early. FedEx in my area always pushes the envelope of the delivery time, even going too far. I've had "It will be there by 3:00" items show up later than 5:00.

    Last FedEx package I got (my Apple Bumper) came before 9am, unfortunately though, my iPhone is coming via UPS, which usually comes around noon. That being said, it would be pointless to wake up earlier.

    I'm going to go ahead an mess with "The night before Christmas" just for you.


    As a matter fact:


    'Twas the night before iPhone, when all through thenet
    Superbowl was coming, people making their bets;
    The packages were coming by ground or by air,
    In hopes that that ability to make un-dropped calls soon would be there;



    Just something I whipped up. XD

    That was actually pretty good!

    Only thing I'd change would be the last line. I'd say, "In hopes that the ability to hold calls would soon be there."

    Good job, though.

    I'm going to be ready by 8am. (UPS NDA before 10:30). Going out right now to scrap off the last bit of snow and ice from the sidewalk. Maybe set up some orange cones and signs with "Reserved Parking For UPS".

    Luckily I had tomorrow scheduled off. Its an annual thing, with the Superbowl. Ironically my iphone is supposed to deliver tomorrow before noon. I will be up at 7:30, and waiting impatiently.

    5:00 am, same time I get up any normal work day. Our UPS normally comes around 1-2 pm. Luckily, I live on the large horse farm where I work and all mail / packages go directly to the main office. We've had the same great UPS guy for years... if somebody isn't in the office when he needs a signature, he knows where to find us in the barn.

    Yeah, I am going to try to not drink too much tonight for the Super Bowl Celebration! Either way I will be more than happy getting up early tomorrow!

    It finally warmed up a bit here so that is above freezing, I went out and busted my butt shoveling and scraping the ice from the driveway. Wouldn't want my UPS guy falling and dropping my iPhone.

    From past experience, in my area, UPS NDA super saver means it will be delivered around 4-5pm. Looks like it's only another 24 hours til happy time

    too funny ... I just did the same thing! I also loved someone elses's post about about putting out cones and saying UPS parking here.

    I hate to be a killjoy, but don't UPS and FedEx handle their business customers before the residential deliveries? I don't think you'll get anything before mid-afternoon (unless you were lucky enough to get overnight, not overnight saver).

    Think of it as your excuse to slepp in so you'll be well rested to play with you new toys!

    I had mine delivered to where I work, since the package must be signed for. The hardest part will not be unboxing it until after work...

    Never mind just called fedex and thats not an option it's only an option after the first delivery attempt
