LOL... 140$ dollars worth of studded winter bike tires are currently sitting on on my step. Apparently Amazon did not request signature...

if it came via one of the couriers, all signatures are suspended for residential homes...only business deliveries still require a signature.

on the aside, just read that Amazon spent $15 Billion in shipping charges last year in the US...

most likely the phone socket is dirty with lint or other gunk, remove battery and blast socket with contact cleaner then air to dry it put back battery back in an try connection again

not sure if this is a right place or not, but if anyone orders ANYTHING shipped by canada post that requires Age Verification, they will not attempt a delivery and will only leave a notice card due to covid, which is dumb, since that would be forcing recievers to go wait in crowded post offices where there is a higher chance of not being able to social distancing than 2 people at a front door. (which they couldn't provide an answer to how it's better, not that i expected anything stellar from them.)

I was surprised to see that Balder's Gate 3 had hit the street without my noticing, but then I looked into it and found it was an "early access" game @ full AAA on release pricing.

Seriously? You want me to pay $80 to be a beta tester for you?
