    Hi. I have a package that I DONT want to be delivered. I want to refuse it and have sent back. Problem is I live in a condo and all packages are received and signed for by the doorman.

    Reason. My cellphone dropped into a small puddle and got wet. I made a claim with ATT since I have insurance. Later that day, after some drying and cleaning by me, the phone came back to life and works perfect. Called ATT, and they said to late, claim is processed and I will be charged the deductible. I really don't want to pay the deductible and go thru the hassle of going to ATT, to have everything transferred and then have to send a perfectly good working cell phone back for nothing.

    So is there a way to have it refused before they attempt delivery? I am going to tell the doorman to refuse it, but he is brand new and just filling in for my normal guy and 10 to 1 he will screw it up.

    Thanks.

    U know its coming via FedEx?

    Call 800#, give them the tracking number & whatever they ask of u (confirming name address etc) . Say refused and rts and the reason

    They'll intercept it and RTS that at the closest hub before it gets to an outbound van ~out for delivery

    I told Dano to leave the bat at Station One.

    Appears Fedex is about as inept as your brown counterparts. The package was delivered.

    Any suggestions? Thanks

    Mark "Return to Sender" on box and drop it off in a drop box. More than likely, you'll get it redelivered to your house the following day because the pickup courier won't have noticed that it shouldn't have been pup'd :D

    Not a good idea. When returning phones, it's always good to get a receipt when dropping off. I've heard too many stories of people getting stuck paying for a phone because they had no proof they returned it.
