You know, the Fedex 800 number is the only one that has hold times of less then 2 minutes to a Customer Rep.

Why are you asking us? Call FedEx and ask them.

This post seems a rather inefficient way to get information. Maybe I'll call my car dealership for help the next time my dishwasher stops working.

I was hoping someone else had some successfull experience with this.

This is a pretty efficient way for me:

-No holding for a CSR
-Someone will almost instantly reply to any thread in OT
-I have only one phone line. I'd have to disconnect and then call fedex.

well in his defense, you could have looked it up on fedex's webpage and that would have knocked out arguments #1 and #3. but hey, this is a public board and off topic, so it doesn't really matter what you post here right?
