    I think it is poor form for my order to be sitting in Cincinnati with DHL for 7 days just saying on hold and no one is replying to my e-mails from OPO or DHL. Whats going on. So much for express shipping, i ordered it on the 17th July what a joke. Maybe I should report to PayPal.

    I am tracking my usps, and it does say signature required on the tracking page. Also I noticed that insurance is for $50 only, compared to $100, that I noticed in shipments to other users in US.

    When I first looked at my Shipping it said $50 insurance included. Now it updated to say Priority Mail 2-Day with $100 insurance included.

    My shipping status now says $100 for insurance and Signature Required. I guess it gets updated as time progresses.

    Well, it's a good step. However, is it going affect the shipping from US to countries like India where it is not launched yet?

    This change is a good one. Packages do get stolen in my neighborhood from time to time. If the package says One+, I bet the chances of it getting stolen are higher.

    So my package was out for delivery today. I stayed on my couch all morning, which is 3 feet from the front door. By 1pm PST, I got suspicious as the mail always comes by noon. So, I go check my mailbox, and they left me a "Sorry, we missed you" slip. They didn't even check to see if I was home -_-
    Now, I need to wait until they get back to the post office later this evening to pick it up in person.

    Lot of folks also falsely claim that their device is stolen when the package is left without signature. I am not saying everyone who claimed stolen device was lying but there must be a'holes who like to get on a free ride and get another phone for free. This is a great move to prevent fraud. I'd say use FedEx which is a little more expensive and little slower compare to priority mail 2 day but it is way more secure. Contact fedex to open a business account which will give a good discount

    USPS priority 1-3 day mail gives 50 bucks insurance for free and if it's priority express, it's 1 business day with 100 bucks free insurance.

    Claiming insurance with USPS for lost packages is also PITA

    Just checked my mail and looks like they came by earlier but no OPO? Not even a delivery attempt slip. I wonder if there's a separate delivery for packages.

    It does not require the signature of the buyer, just a signature at the place of delivery to prove that it was delivered. It releases the seller of responsibility.

    btw, how much is the estimated shipping cost in the US, let say in San Francisco including the additional 2.35?

    $10.34, very reasonable since it's priority mail

    You're not the only one. My brother's OPO was supposedly 'attempted delivery' by USPS after 4pm yesterday, even though the rest of the mail for the apartment building had already come in sometime during the afternoon. To top it off, no notice so my brother had to call in and go through their automated system and spend 20 minutes setting up a redelivery. I had to hangout at home today, because they don't even provide an approximate time or time of day like 'afternoon' or 'evening' like UPS. If I had to drive to the USPS office to pick up a package we paid extra for, I'd be royally peeved. Fortunately, the phone rep asked if we wanted to leave instructions and we told them to come to our apartment door this time.

    Good luck with yours!
