Any USPS employees received their iPhones thru any other shipping method than USPS

After all this wait it looks like we will be on vacation when the phones arrive.  I don't want them sitting on my door step (waiting for some lucky sole to happen by - thank you fedex!)  We will have our mail on hold, so IF AT&T does ship it via USPS as they stated in their email

 

Shipping Carrier:

Unless you are an employee of UPS, USPS or DHL, your shipment should ship via FedEx.
I'll be okay.  But based on the number of times in this transaction AT&T has given me false information, I just wanted to double check and see if there are any USPS employees out there (on a USPS Premiere account) that received their phone orders through another carries???

Thanks Irish Rose - Just another example of AT&T saying one thing and then doing something totally different.  Of course, that started with my first conversation with the AT&T rep on 7/19 who told me they were shipping within 2 days!  Smiley Surprised

Some Reps. are more knowledgeable than others, it just depends on who you talk to. That being said, I believe the 2 day shipping date time that you were given might have been from the time your order actually ships out, till the time it arrives at its destination.  I was told by AT&T that mine would arrive in 7 to 10 business days, and it looks like they are spot on from the tracking info that I'm able to see.

Ad there we go.........I will say, my guess is they are just trying to get these orders out ASAP and are doing the best they can to make it fast!

 

Guess I'll have to keep checking while I am on vacation and have a neighbor pick it up.

One  of my phones just came off backorder.  So at least I will know on that one, before I leave town, where to tell my neighbor to look for it.

And I get the tracing info and it is shipping UPS not USPS.  I'm sure people just appreciate getting their phones as fast as possible.
