    Are they being shipped 'Signature Required' ? Just want to know if I need to be home or if he'll leave it on my doorstep.
    Indirect Signature Required means that you CAN just leave a DATED signature on a piece of paper on your front door and the driver can then leave the package there.

    This is probably what I would end up doing... although I'm worried that I have yet to receive my confirmation or tracking email. :(

    So is this indirect, or standard signature required?

    There is also an option on the FedEx page for your tracking number to "Hold at FedEx Location". This allows you to pick it up at a FexEx Kinkos or other FedEx office.

    It wasn't available for my shipment, so I don't know if it was because of local FedEx or the sender?

    Because of the value of this shipment its "signature required" (direct or indirect) by default. Unless you have an incompetent driver, he/she will not leave it at the door.

    However, "indirect" does mean that you can leave a signed & dated note on the door...that's indirectly getting a signature. If it was "direct", then you have to have someone physically sign it in front of the driver.

    From FedEx.com (indirect signature)

    FedEx will obtain a signature in one of three ways:

    1. From any person at the delivery address; or
    2. From a neighbor, building manager or other person at a neighboring address; or
    3. The recipient can sign a FedEx door tag authorizing release of the package without anyone present.

    So in essence, a signature is required. The driver just can't leave the package on the door.

    I certainly would never sign a door tag to leave a package at my door. Perhaps because I live in NYC... lol

    you should also be able to sign the release via the fedex website, now whether the driver (I've found fedex drivers to be far more annoying than UPS drivers in following rules) recognizes you've signed the release is another store altogether.

    i'd do it on the website, and then also leave a note with the pertinent information (name, tracking number, etc) at the door to be safe.

    Not to be a ******* match but...two things:

    1) from the FedEx.com website (http://www.fedex.com/us/customersupp...e/index.html):
    "If your package was shipped with the Indirect Signature Release option, you may leave a signed and dated handwritten note on the door instructing the driver to leave the package at your door."

    2) I left my signed/dated note on the door this morning, the driver came and took the note and left my Verizon Trophy today!!!

    BOO-YAAAHHH!!! I'm WP7 BABY!!!!

    I couldnt be happier.

    Well, yes I could...SLCD, a bigger non-removable battery, and LTE once they get power efficiency down. But, wifi saves me on the LTE. Havent tested the battery life yet.

    Now I cant wait for mango.
