    What is that supposed to mean? Isn't UPS expensive?

    Yes, it's extremely expensive, but their employees are overworked and underpaid.

    Most every worker in the U.S. is overworked and underpaid, nothing new there. UPS employees steal all kinds of material every day. I would never ship anything valuable through them. You have to be very sneaky the way you package something so that they can not determine what is inside, and you certainly don't tell them what is in that package on a form that anyone can read. That just hastens the theft.

    awesome! i've used usps, and i hope it's going to be ok. though i assume usps will be better than ups cause usps will contract from usa to australian governments, rather than private companies. last i checked we were both first world countries

    i had mine delievered like last week - last week.
    was fine, delievered in 3 days. ups express.
    what service did u use?
    did the guy who sent it use decent packaging? it's quite a slim chance that someone stole it 'KNOWNING' it had an iphone in side.

    Just my .02 for folks overseas who are getting iPhones (or anything $$$) shipped - do NOT use UPS. I have a friend who is in IT Management there, and the stories he tells me about warehouse people getting busted for stealing are crazy, and it seems to happen A LOT. I think FedEx has MUCH tighter processes in place to prevent employee shrinkage.

    DHL highly recommended for continental Europe & especially German speaking countries, by far the fastest within Europe and highly reliable. Only make sure that you let DHL pick it up directly and not use any 3rd party shipping shop (friends iPhone spent 2 1/2 days in Texas, then from there through New York to some small city in Europe within 20 hours).

    From what i could see, a lot of iPhones are shipped through UPS on ebay. I went looking for one that goes through DHL. I hope it ships today and have it by the weekend in Belgium
