    Default [iPhone 3G][Rumor] Lots of bad (and no news) from O2

    O2 is messing us about so much. I was considering buying myself out of my T-Mobile contract for 270, and my phone's already up on eBay.

    But now rumours are coming in thick and fast:

    - VERY limited stock of 16GB available on launch day, if any
    - PAYG only "later this year". God knows when, and at what price.
    - Shop opening times still not confirmed
    - O2 phone operators know nothing
    - Rumour that you could pre-order the phone from today (4 July) came to nothing

    How am I supposed to do an orderly transition like this? This is a total shambles! Right now I'm seriously thinking about just leaving everything as it is and stay with T-Mobile.

    And yes, I've written the same thing to O2, just so that they know.

    Disgusted,
    London

    i totally agree with you mate. Its a joke.

    I work for O2 in customer service, and we've not even heard anything about it yet.

    Went into an O2 shop myself to get some more info, and the girl in the shop didn't even have an idea. Certainly no 4th July pre order. She just said first come first served on launch date.

    As for the PAYG phone, she just said she didn't know about a release date. May be later in the year

    I think its a total joke. If they do make PAYG customers wait longer, I think its disgusting.

    O2 employees having to go to an O2 shop to find out about this, only to come out again empty handed? My my, it's getting worse and worse!

    I agree mate. I've been waiting for this 3G version for ages.

    I just think the lack of info being relesed is a very poor customer experience from O2. Having said that I dont know whether the lack of info is down to any sort of control being used from Apple.

    That wouldn't surprise me in the slightest.

    Trust me, nobody knows the price of PAYG iPhone yet.

    We get our internal updates before info is released to the public, so we're fully aware of what the situation is before we get phone calls asking about it, and we haven't had any news passed down yet on price or launch date for the PAYG.

    We're all just gonna have to hold tight. Me included!

    So any prices being quoted by stores or customer service advisors is just pure speculation at the moment.

    If you have an o2 contract and have enquired about iPhone then you would have recieved a pre order sms on 4th. I got one.

    Nope. I'm on my staff contract, have registered for iPhone updates. Got a message on July 1st telling me that it lands on 11th July, and will text later with order details, and orders are first come first served.

    There is no 4th July pre order. At all.
