I have a friend who lives in the UK who bought the iPhone for me and shipped it by Royal Mail Express to me.
He tried to get insurance but they said they do not insure cellphones. He was asked what the package contained of course, and he had no reason to lie.
I live in Portugal and my friend had to write down my address TWICE. Once for the package and again for the registered mail form.
The next day I see in the tracking page that it was being shipped to POLAND. NOT PORTUGAL. How the hell do they make this mistake?!
I got a hold of the polish postal services online tracking page, and indeed, it arrived in Poland yesterday. I called Royal Mail and they say 'Sorry about that. Maybe in Poland they will realize the mistake and redirect it to you. If not, you can file a complaint.'
You have no idea how this feels . I had to ask 4 family members for money to be able to afford the 400€ for the iPhone. It was supposed to be my early christmas present... I'm so screwed :/
