      1. Why on earth would you want yet another Sky router, they have very little second hand value, and quite frankly aren't that great.

      2. If you are planing on committing theft, it's not a great idea to post about it in a forum, stating your name.

      3 I don't know if sky keep a records of them when they send them out, but, if you do steal a sky router, bear in mind it has a unique mac and serial number, which they'll send to a sky server if you use them.

      4. It used to be common practice where I live for couriers to stick parcels in the dustbin, or drop them over a 6 foot fence, or under a hedge without even leaving a note if your not in. Mind you, I remember seeing on the local news some years back, that drivers from one courier service had gotten in the habit of tossing undelivered parcels in a farmers ditch and forging the signature, to save them going back again.

      Have you got your router? Is it working?

      If so please stop being an idiot. People like you are the reason we have to tell other folk who can't afford it they have to pay for routers.

      Get a grip, along with some grammar and punctuation.

      The people who work for the Royal Mail Delivery Office are different to those who work for Parcel Force.

      These two were once one company, but spilt up several years ago now, although they share the same parent company, Royal Mail Group.

      I don't know the procedures for Parcel Force, but it has changed over the years for your postie. Technically it was a dismissable offence for them to just throw a package over your fence, or leave it in a garden shed, unless you have a specific agreement with them only a few years ago.

      Although a signature is required, there are some specific circumstances where a postie can sign on your behalf. For obvious reasons though, these are not common.

      I'm not familiar with Parcel Forces' procedures, but would expect them to be similar and Royal Mail's may have changed a little.
