• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

everyone runs into this problem with different companies. if you have a tracking number (which i hope you do), get online and see where its last location was.

oh geez.. i wish people would use their brain before posting something like this. APPLE ships by FedEx, just go to your Order Status page on apple.com and it'll give you the tracking number and take you right there, genius.

I will tell you how much FedEx doesn't blow and how lucky we are the Apple is WISE enough to use FedEx.

I've ordered tons of stuff from Think Geek.com. Out of roughly 8 orders in the last year 6 boxes have come from UPS smashed, opened, dripping wet, opened and contents messed up, holes in the box, writing...etc. FedEx, nothing. I get my shipments sometimes not in the 4 days I should, maybe five. But I get them. Nothing is ever wrong.

I've been to the UPS warehouse after hours to pick things up and I've seen what happens. Ever see that commerical with the UPS CEO stating that UPS is always on time and he says, "I don't know how they do it and I do not worry about that, they just do and that's Brown for you!" Yeah let me tell you...
UPS only gets there on time because their fawkup drivers don't take the time to make sure you get yoru package without damages, they just make sure they can drop kick it to your porch.

I sent NEC a monitor for warranty work. They sent it back 2 days later. I got it and there was a hole the size of a foot in the side of the box. The monitor was damaged badly. NEC had to absorb the cost of giving me a 21" instead of a 19" because the 19" I had was 2 years old and was no longer being stocked.

Anyway that is my rant. I like FedEx, I only ship FedEx for my ebay items....get your tracking number and find out what's up.

there are plenty of people with FedEx horror stories too, I've shipped with UPS many many times, and never once has a package been damaged... althought UPS isn't called United Parcel Smashers for nothing....

UPS Blows. FedEX Rocks. UPS has lost over $25000 worth of product, laptops, DVD Players, Microwave ovens, etc. at our HQ.

THe response to UPS doing that is FedEX taking the effort to stand by a plane that just landed, search for two key packages of ours, so we could make the customer's deadline.

oh, dear. you have too much worry about it. your precious will be arrived soon. Fedex won't lose yours because ipod is one of fragile item. you know, if the box says 'fragile', fedex carry it more carefully.

I think that holiday season delivery makes the delay little bit. so you need more patient.

Fragile doesn't mean a thing to most workers in the shipping industry. I myself have seen plenty of packages marked fragile thrown around so just because it is marked fragile doesn't mean that it is going to be handled carefully.

i'd be making a phone call to Apple. not only are you the customer, but Apple is Fed-Ex's customer. get on the phone.

but, before you do that, for the love of God, get rid of that hideous sig.
