    I ordered my wireless charger from Verizon after the phone and the charger showed up today via Fedex.

    mine too, I think FedEx is holding them, as I am one hour away and there has been no updates at all for today.
    Must be holding mine too. Anyone showing movement on their order tracking?

    Same situation, been in transit for over a day. Either they're holding them, or transporting them by horse and wagon...

    Is it possible to expand on that because either my Fedex driver is using Apple maps and doing circles in Memphis or Fedex just likes to torture me.

    Mine's on the move, at the usual final destination facility, though it would usually be listed on a delivery vehicle by now if it was going to be today, we'll see...

    Anyone get their phone yet?? I'm loving the excitement here. I am getting a Note 2 myself and I'm currently on a thunderbolt but I've been waiting to hear your opinions on the DNA before officially pulling the trigger on the Note 2

    My status hasn't changed in the last few days just showing it's in Memphis. I'm hoping their just holding it at my local center just waiting to be put on the truck in the morning for delivery. If it's still in Memphis it probably won't make Michigan until after Thanksgiving

    For the first time ever for me, they are intentionally holding it at the last point where it goes on the truck. It now even says "Package not due for delivery". Stupid. Maybe I can just go pick it up, ha.

    Though XDA has some people on truck for delivery.

    let us know if that works, I betting they won't let you pick it up today but I hope I'm wrong.

    I tried to select that option yesterday "pick up at Fedex" and it said it wasn't available on this package.

    I believe Fedex policy is to require a first attempt at delivery before allowing the recipient to pick it up at a local site. I tried that before with packages that weren't "due for delivery" and they shut me down.

    To be honest, I'm a bit too busy to get over there anyway tonight, but I may still try. I'd love to not wait until tomorrow simply so it's not at my door, but I'm not losing sleep over it. My "hold at Fedex location" is clickable.

    This is correct, and just discussing with our own logistics people here, what essentially happens is I'm not priority for today, I am tomorrow. So if my route wasn't full today they may toss it on. Hence people on slower routes today will probably get it a day earlier. No big deal to me.

    I just love how they drive past my house, to bring it to another fedex location an hour away, just to drive again an hour back to drop it off at my house the next day!

    We are in the same boat... now my box is in Newark, couldn't they just stop by Princeton and drop it off with me first? now they have to drive all the way back down south again tomorrow. (I know they can't, but it's so hard to wait for new toy)

    odds are that your package isn't actually just sitting there on a shelf, its most likely buried deep inside a trailer with about 1,000 other packages. For example, say you order something from a website and the total shipment is 3 boxes. So when that package arrives at a facility and say you live in a somewhat large town, they will load multiple trailers with packages to that city at the same time, because its not really physically possible to process the amount of packages we do this time of year going in to a single trailer, so its gets split out into different trailers. Then, for whatever reason one of your packages diverted into a separate trailer as the other two. So then one of those trailers becomes full before the other and its on its way to the next destination, while your other box is still inside a half full trailer at the old facility. This happens with a lot of shipments, so when your other boxes arrive it will get unloaded like normal, but now get loaded again in a specific trailer with lots of other boxes in the same situation to wait until your other box arrives, which they then will all be unloaded again whenever the other trailer arrives to be loaded onto a deliver van together. They do this for multiple reasons mainly to keep shipments together so a driver doesn't have to waste gas going to the same stop 2 days in a row for no reason, or in this case the package isn't due for delivery just yet.

    lol, make sense? You can go ask, but odds are you wont be able to pick it up just yet. If you give them a legit reason/story they just might do it for you, but its got to be good, because it takes a good amount of time and man power just to find that single box, not to mention the unnecessary rehandling and potential damaging of literally about 1,000 other customers packages, just for your new cell phone.

    Your package is actually sitting at a ramp location if it is saying Newark, which feeds the stations. To be precise, at the airport.

    I hope they didn't waste jet fuel to run from Philly to Newark. They could have just called me, I would have picked it up 40 mins away in P.A. Saved them some money. Haha.

    Ugh, my status just updated... didn't make much progress. Since Sunday it says "in transit" from Memphis. Latest update was that it just left Memphis. I'm sure it will make it here tomorrow, but I was hoping for something a little more exciting than it just now leaving the facility where it was dropped off two days ago. Fortunately I'm off from work tomorrow, so I can anxiously sit around the house all day waiting for the knock on the door!
