    I know lots of people use ModChipCentral.com to get their orders fulfilled, but I must say, I'm getting a little worried. I placed my order last Monday night, so Tuesday it was sent out at earliest shipment. It's now almost Tuesday, 1 week later, and the tracking information still says my package arrived in the USA 4 days ago.

    Am I supposed to go somewhere to pick-up my package at a local parcel? Or is it coming from a courier? Tracking information get transfered from CanadaPost.ca to another site?

    Maybe I'm just anxious, but I usually have a tracking number or some sort of estimated delivery time.

    It took 5 days to get to KY. It's possible it got held up in customs. I believe it would still show it was in the USA but until it's released to the USPS you won't get it. I'd give them until the end of the week.

    Oh, so it comes USPS? Meaning it will be in the regular Mon-Sat mailbox?

    Mine took about the same from a place shipping from Manitoba, and I'm in Minnesota.
    Customs has their way with it, you'll probably have it in a few days. [​IMG]

    Well hell, just an envelope. I hope the damn thing still works when it finally gets to me. If it's even still in one piece.

    someone would have to bend the envelope pretty severely and/or put something very heavy on it to damage it.

    I ordered an EZ flash for the DS one time and it came in a little wooden box... very nice.

    ModChipCentral has been VERY nice to deal with so far, so I blame it on lousy american postal workers. tomorrow makes 1 week exactly, so i've got my fingers and toes crossed on it's arrival.

    Shipping to the US actually costs us just under $12 so we do take a hit on every order shipped to the US. It would cost maybe $1.50-$2.00 to ship via Airmail, but that is with no insurance or tracking information and could take 2-3 weeks. The $9.95 method we charge comes with tracking and 4-6 business days to arrive.

    Veloxi , pm me your order number and I can take a look into your order for you [​IMG]

    This is the last fu**ing time I order from Canada.

    Going on 9 days now. YESSSSS

    Sorry for my anger. I just can't believe tomorrow is Thursday and I sent in the shipment on Monday night of last week. I've never had a problem like this with mail before. I still blame it on USPS. Slow ass lazy fat bastards. I wish there was some kind of tracking number or something once it hits the states, I'm becoming really pissed.

    They charge $10 because Canadian mail is incredibly expensive.

    Mine took about 4 days to show up... but you realize that if customs found it they'd probably hold/destroy it.

    There IS a tracking number once it hits the States. Same number as always. And no, I'm not kidding. Take your Canadian mail number and stick it in USPS.com and it'll show you where it is. And yeah for some reason USPS is really slow these days... It takes 3-4 days for something mailed 20 miles away to get to my house... when it should take only a day!

    Regular canadian mail isn't that expensive. I guess they're using the express mail + tracking though.

    Oddly enough I don't think I ever got a tracking number with my order. I got it in 5 days though so no big deal.

    I don't think customs would destroy it

    Damn, well it's over the 4-6 days, and now even 5-7 days. I really hope customs wouldn't wreck my package... on the CanadaPost.ca site it said my package DID arrive in destination country on the 4th... so I'm assuming it went through?

    Anyone... I can't find a seller. Foundmy.com sells them but it looks VERY sketchy, and having ONE package lost in the mail already, I'm not going to deal with 2 lost packages and $110 wasted.
