    Default [Iphone 3g] Possible Recall

    Well, ive just come off the phone from 02's Business department, after being told i couldnt buy an iphone 3g on my business card in store at a CWP :@ So i called them up, and was told there is a 42,000 unit waiting list! Along with a 12-14 week delay for me to even to have one, but he also said there was no waiting list for the 8GB.

    The guy believes that (Confirmed from higher up) apple, are delibratly holding off stock of the 16GB Due to a 16GB recall to be put into force some time soon...

    So could this be true? Apple did the same with the first iphone, create stock shortages, boosts interest, and keeps a demand for the phone... but is this shortage really because of a product recall?

    Me thinks someone at O2 is having a laugh! I managed to catch the CPW online ordering last week when it opened for half a day selling 16GB 3G model before closing with the dreaded 'out of stock' I received it next day via City Link. So, if there was a 42,000 waiting list, how come CPW had some last Thursday? Surely the first people on the waiting list would have received their 16GB before CPW were issued with limited stock. I would be livid if I was on a waiting list and found out CPW were selling them last week!
