That's why you need to speak to an operator. They can tie your tracking number up to your parcel and then give you the code.

If you put your USPS number into the parcelforce website, then click on the link, you get your UK tracking code don`t you?

I`m annoyed, as my parcel enetered customs a full 8 minutes before yours, but still hasn`t come out

Ah, but I need a 15 or 17 digit code. Not the one on the USPS site. Bad luck re customs. It will leave... eventually...

Just picked up my Sony Reader from Parcel Force duty was £59. If you print the tracking details you don't need to wait for PF to get in touch with you.

Quick question, what method did you use to buy the readers? did you use prepayed cards and a forwarding shipping agent or did you buy off a forumite?

I hope i'm not going to annoy anyone by posting this, but it seems i've been more fortunate than some of you. My reader was shipped by our friendly forum member late on Friday evening UK time and I wasn't expecting to see it until next week. The postman arrived a couple of hours ago and to my surprise he had in his hands my Sony Reader!! Two days between dispatch and delivery, and no problem with customs. I'm thrilled.
I'm going to play now, but i'll post again later.
To the others who have collected theirs today, have fun!

I'm feeling unloved. My local depot has mine, but they're not answering the phone!

Grrrr..

Stuart, tell me: did you just go down to the ParcelForce centre (in Camden?) with printed out details from the web (simply the tracking number?), and proof of ID, and they gave it to you?

RCS1000> Yep I printed out the tracking details from ParcelForce.com using the EB number Geekraver provided. Took proof off address, and collected device. £59 pounds charge (gits)

Closet Tube is Mornington Crescent.

I guess I'll be at Mornington Crescent this evening! (Fortunately, only a 15 minute cycle from home)
