The first week of November I sent two cellphones by the US Postal Service from Maryland to Higuey. After three weeks with no confirmation of thier arrival I posted a thread asking if I was SOL. Many people said that the chances of them getting there were slim to none and would probably be a early Christmas gift to the Customs employees. It turns out they arrived last week almost five months from the time I initiated the process. I will never send anything of value the same way again but it does show that the DR postal system works( to some degree).
