    OK, I'll play along. Mine confirmation says before 4:30. I live in a remote area, so I am not looking out my window. I am checking the tracking page waiting for the dreaded "delivery reschedule" to Monday. It would suck, but it is likley to happen. My only other option would be to spend 4-5 hours driving to try and find one. Sitting here finger's crossed........

    You should've worked it out with the sales rep (assuming you've ordered by phone). I remember I only paid $7 for Next Day delivery on my DX last year, the sales rep split the cost ($13). This time around, I got free Next Day, I explained to the guy (very nice sales rep by the way) that I've been waiting for this phone for months, and that I was eligible for my upgrade since May, and he upgraded shipping for free. Not only that, but when I got back home I noticed the price online was $269.99 instead of the $299.99 I paid for, so I called Verizon and the new sales rep told me there was nothing she could do, I could try refusing the package, then I could try ordering online to get that lower price... she was kinda getting smart with me, so I said, don't worry, I'll have someone else help me. Went to bed (was very late), woke up in the am, called them back, spoke to yet another sales rep, this guy gave me a $30 credit in my account within 10 seconds.

    So, even though I kinda went off topic in this thread, people, if you don't get the answer you want from a sales rep, say thank you, hang up, call again, the next rep will take care of you (it might take 2 or 3 tries / reps, but you'll get it your way, at least I do).

    Thank you for the thoughts. I may need all the help I can get. I just checked again, and it is one town closer. Not trying to jinx myself but I half though of hanging a welcome fed-x sign at the gate with an arrow pointing in the direction of my house. Never had fed-X here before, and when I used to get them at my office in town I ALWAYS got guff from the driver about how he could never find any addresses in this town. Par for the course here, especially if he is using Google Navigation:blink:. He could end up in Southern Colorado.

    sounds like you're in the middle of nowhere with one of those longass driveways.
    the sign might not be as silly of an idea as it sounds at first.

    if they're not familiar with your house you might just want to do that.. make it BIG and VISIBLE tho.

    Speed,

    Nowhere, yes. Long driveway no. But there are two houses, so folks get confused. The real problem is that if the driver is coming up from "the big town" as opposed to switching the packages to the more local guys truck, they may not even be able to find my main road. Seriously. Whenever I need a good chuckle, I just tell my phone to nav me somewhere. Heck, my phone cannot even find walmart, our one and only "real" store. I am sure when the google nav mappers came through, they were humming the theme to the twilight zone.......while thumbing through their english-spanish dictonary.

    i had to order mine through telesales, i asked for free overnight shipping and the rep said no problem. also because they are offering the $100 gift card online i asked if i could have that because i HAD to order it over the phone because of a screw up they did to my account a month ago, htey said they couldnt but they gave me a $100 credit instead so even better! my bionic will be $199 with free overnight shipping and it is currently out for derivery! hopefully it will show up soon.

    Well its going to be Monday for me, got my order in yesterday afternoon and the lady said if it processed before 6pm it would be here today but it was 5:15 at the time so she was not confident it would. I asked her if she had any pull whatsoever to please call someone and get it done for me. Well, I kept checking last night and it just kept saying picking and this morning it says ready to ship...

    Monday, another 3 days without a Bionic wont kill me, but not sure if the dog will live through the weekend or not. lol.....

    It's always best to remember that dogs rule the universe, and are generally happy to have us around...
