Just wondering how long it typically takes to receive a package from Mumbai to USA? I have heard 7-10 days but it has been close to 15-17 now and I'm starting to get nervous. Has anybody ever had anything take this long or longer or is it probably lost/stolen?

How did you send it? I've had courier services (Fedex, DHL) take 2 weeks ++.

Smile Package from India to USA - NO PROBLEMS : )

I have ordered several things from India through Ebay. It takes a couple of weeks to receive. At first I was prepared if I didn't receive the item, but I have never had a problem. All the items I ordered came through the regular post.

I've had parcels take a month or more to the West Coast ... but never had a package go missing, so just hang in there.

By ordinary post from India anything up to 3 months and by India post registered air anything from 2 days(yes 2 days) to 6 weeks. Nothing has gone missing, so patience. Or as they say in India "wait 5 minutes".

You have heard right about the 7-10 days duration, but sometimes it does takes longer than even the unusual. You could also check out your mailbox (If any, if not already) and also neighbours.

Hope you get the package soon!

In the End its just memories what we end up with, and right now you have the choice to make it Good, Bad or a Thrill.
