one of my relatives recieved a package from China last week with an 'iPod' in, no note or anything else - it coincided within days of his birthday - so he thought it may be from someone he knew - this week two more have landed on the doormat - from the same source - unless they are prizes that are often bandied at the top of websites for online bookings..... keeping my fingers crossed that he doesn't need three ;)
Something similar happened to me recently... I had ordered and taken delivery of a new 02 xda mobile pda. Two days later, another one was delivered without any paperwork or info enclosed in the package.
Being an honest soul, I rang o2 to inform them that the second phone had been delivered...they could find no trace of where it had come from, even when i charged it and gave them the imei number. It remains a mystery, and since they don't think it's theirs, it remains boxed and with me.
I suspect that the computer despatch system threw a wobbily, and reckon they may ask for it back eventually.
Will be seeing him next friday and will get full specs off him I saw the first one to arrive last weekend - but wasn't paying much attention - the other two arrived this week - so actually he only would have found out about those as he just got back from Spain last night. will report back with facts & figures -and maybe one he doesn't want ;)
