    I also ordered a game and pad from VG+ on the 20th, no sign yet :(

    EDIT: Resistance and pad just turned up about 10 secs after above message, lol. Still no console though, mine was sent using same service so hopefully it will be shortly.

    I take it you got that info from the usps website. Check the parcel force website, that will give more info. You could have it for the week end.

    Or you may not find out until 2-3 weeks after delivery depending on the courier, both TNT and DHL have billed me a couple of weeks after delivery. In contrast both UPS and Royal Mail/Parcel Force wanted paid the fees when they delivered.

    Smak, if your ps3 was only in customs for a minute then I think that sounds hopeful.

    All i have to say is that you should not pay it :) The delivery people have paid customs for you and then it is upto dhl or tnt to get the money off you which is not possible unless you pay, it is not like customs will track you down :) But are you a person who would bump off the delivery company ? I would say, i will pay the customs but not your charge on top , you got paid to deliver it.

    How come you guys seem to be receiving your PS3's so quickly? Bought mine off eBay and was posted using 'Canada Post Express International'. It was collected on the 7th, accepted into the sorting plant on the 8th and left canada on the 14th. I could track it on the Parcelforce website two days later, it states it was 'handed over'. I've been checking everyday with the exception of Xmas and Boxing day, thought there might be some movement today so I decided to check but still says 'handed over'. So much for a 6-8 delivery time. Reading the Parcelforce thread, I'm actually starting to panic now, keep thinking it's lost! or worse fell victim to some light fingered employee.

    It would seem that I've got through customs with no charges, the box was gift wrapped and I don't see any signs of the paper being torn to see whats inside so.....

    Just in the process of setting up will get some pics and impressions up later :D

    Does anyone know how to get a tracking number for the UK carrier once your PS3 leaves customs?

    Or does the USPS site continue to track it?

    in transit to the uk u will probably need a new tracking number if sent by US postal or an unknown service that is not in the uk.

    Hey Jonas,

    I'm in the same boat! I thought it was just me, mine was shipped by Canada Post (see my earlier post in this thread) on the 14th. That's all I get as well 'Handed Over'.

    Mine was in a Montreal sorting plant for a week before it was shipped out! It's annoying when people receive there PS3's in less than a week. What's going now?

    Well according to the post office mine was sent for express international, it should take 4 buisness days max 7 days. For the money you pay for delivery you should get it under a week.

    Have you tried your tracking number in parcel force or dhl etc to see if it works ?
