    I ordered something from modchipcentral (canada) to be shipped to the US. However, the USPS tracking is looking mighty suspicious ("origin is preparing shipment?") for the past few days. Is is possible that my package has been rejected by customs? [​IMG]

    Has anyone heard of this happening? Thanks.

    That's how it was when I ordered some stuff from another Canadian shop that shipped by post (Canda Post to USPS). Both of their tracking info never really updated until the package finally arrived.

    Unless you importing something that you know is restricted. Like food and such, it shouldn't get rejected. The customs people will have no idea what it is if they have written circuit board on the customs form.

    Its called shipping USPS. [​IMG] Sometimes when I order things and they are shipped through USPS it doesnt say "delivered" until it gets to my house. Doesnt make sense, if you pay for "tracking" shouldnt it acctually do that? [​IMG]

    Rising Canadian Dollar = more imports = huge backlogs at customs
