Firstly I packaged the parcel with label all sealed and UPS did not pitch. Phoned them and emailed them and now it seems a more concrete date and time has been set.
Secondly they're saying that the battery needs to be removed from the phone. Is that even possible? Must we remove it? I've seen no other similar requests, and frankly I do not want to damage the device since I am eligible to get the LTE at this point. Returning a damaged device may change that...
Solved! Go to Solution.

Did you tell ups you were shipping a phone?
IF i remember correctly ever since after 9/11 they had a new policy for batterys.
Lithium and lithium ion batteries: Both rechargeable or non-rechargeable power sources, common in computers, cell phones, cameras, and other small electronic devices. If dropped, crushed, or short-circuited, these batteries can release dangerous amounts of heat and may ignite, and are dangerous in fires. Special regulations apply to shipping these batteries. Shipments requiring hazardous materials shipping papers are accepted from contract hazmat shippers only, and certain lithium batteries may not qualify for UPS service.

UPS told me I had to remove the battery, when I handed them the sealed package. I told them the phone was sealed and the battery didn't come out... he kind of just stopped, shrugged, and took it.
Arrived OK at the warehouse so I guess that's something
