No look at the Bullring in Birmingham, they havn't received any and just told me they expect them at end of the month at the moment. He said its possible to change but until they hear anything or receive anything they are going on the only date they have been told (September 28 - end of the month)

Let us know if you hear/witness anything else from that store (or any UK store)

No I don't think so. My friend got it for me from another online forum. He used it and so did I, he said that other people have used it too, so it is re-usable.
I had actually order my iPod Touch a day before, and then he sent me the code to see if that would change my mind into buying one... so I canceled my original order... and order a new one with the code.

Real easy... log into your Apple Store account... click on the order, click cancel... it's done.
Go back to the main store, select your iPod and replace the oder, enter the code and you'll save money!! As easy as that.

I'm wondering if there's any truth in them just not claiming to have them by phone. I just checked Bluewater again and got the same standard answer 'not shipping until the 28th' without even bothering to check or ask anyone.

Thats what I was thinking, when I spoke to the Regents street store they said not until October like robots....I wouldn't be surprised if they are selling them as we speak over at regents street.

My pre-order is still just that - a pre-order, expected to ship around the 28th.

Personally, I hope it stays that way. If it ships before this Tuesday I won't be able to cancel it so easily if it turns out that an affordable 16GB 3G iPhone with a non-ridiculous O2 tariff is announced...

If that does happen, and the sums add up, it's iPod-Touch-Cancelocity round my place...

http://www.macworld.co.uk/ipod-itunes/news/index.cfm?newsid=19103

to be honest I wanted iTouch so bad this morning but after reading about the screen problems I am thinking that maybe its a good thing, I would get to read the reviews before I decide to put my £200 on rev.A iTouch ..

JamesC, it looks like you are looking at your order via the US Apple Store (which says "Ships by:") rather than the UK store (www.apple.com/uk/store) which says "Estimated shipping:". If you view the order via the UK store, the engraving and gift message options should no longer be greyed out. (My 'Add a gift message' option is greyed out when viewed via the US store but not via the UK store.)

For the record, my order for a 16G-ZOO was placed Sep 5, 2007 at 07:27PM GMT (12:27 PM PDT) i.e. as soon as the UK store was back up!, but it still says:
"Not yet shipped"
Ships by: 28 Sep, 2007
Delivers by 01 Oct, 2007 - 02 Oct, 2007

To be honest, if at 10am next Tuesday a UK 3G iPhone is announced with sensible pricing and shipping before Xmas I will cancel the iPod touch order and get the iPhone instead... but I suspect the first UK iPhones won't be 3G, in which case I will stick with the touch until a 3G iPhone is released.

I'm very confused.

I applied the coupon code to my order after it was placed, which the lady I spoke to was more than happy to do. She announced it would take £30 off my order.

So that's £269.00 minus £30.00 = £239.00.

I've just checked my order status and the total is now £188.31. Does that mean I've had an £80.69 discount?! No funds have been taken from by bank account. I'm not sure what's happened, but I'm certainly not complaining!

Unfortunately, the order status has remained the same:

MeWhOeLsE, thats odd... I can still 'Add a gift message' via the UK site. Do you still have the option to cancel the order? As I understand it, the option to cancel via the web disappears once they have boxed up your order ready to dispatch, so that might be a more reliable indicator of progress.

Joe23 - I assume you phoned 0800 039 1010 to apply the coupon code retrospectively - I might give that a go!

I know what you mean about grasping at straws.... I was quite excited (sad puppy that I am) when you first posted that the engraving option was greyed out thinking the UK orders were being prepared for shipping!!

At least we can still cancel our orders - I do feel sorry for our US friends prevented from canceling by an order status change just as they appear in the shops over there. It will be just my luck for my order to change status at 09:59 next Tuesday and then a 16GB 3G UK iPhone is announced with immediate shipping!! (OK, that won't happen, maybe in Feb 2008, so I will stick with my touch order for now.)

If they release early in this country it'll probably be just prior to any iphone announcements - makes sense for them to do that.

OTOH iphone doesn't interest me at the moment.. I'm only a couple of months into my current contract so I'm not on the market for one for another 6 months probably (by which time they'll have 16GB, 3G and a healthy 3rd party software market hopefully).

I keep calling the Regent Street :apple: store, hoping they will say "yes, we just got them in", but all i keep hearing is the same "robotic" response... "not till the 28th September".

I feel like saying "well thats what they said in the US and they DO HAVE THEM in some US :apple: stores!"... but i know i would get some sarcastic response like... "well thats the US and were in the UK".

Any body else feel like calling everyday to check but feel that you will get some sarcastic response if you do?

Out of interest, what's my position as a consumer if my Touch arrives via my online order (assuming I don't cancel it!) and it has that outrageously bad 'negative blacks', over-contrasty display problem and I want a replacement?

Do I have to return it via mail to an Apple depot, or can I take it into an Apple Store (in Regent Street, for example) and ask for a replacement?

Yeah I would love to know the answer to this too.
It took me a little over a week and a discount code to finally purchase the iPod Touch and now its plagued by these screen and sound issues - serves me right for not waiting a little longer.

My order status has changed!


It now reads 'Cancelled'. I'm afraid I've read nothing but bad news on this device all day - I've seen some absolutely appalling images of the screen, bad news about the sound quality, plus the more I think about it the less attractive the internet access really is (I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of places I frequent even semi-regularly with WiFi access, and my own home is one of them), and you can't even add events to the calendar so all in all it's a great interface being totally wasted.

What REALLY gutting is that I sold my 3 month old shiny new black iPod Video to fund this, and the new Classics look absolutely disgusting in comparison with their curved edges and non-shiny fronts. :mad:

This is to fix the screen problems... I don't know if that's true or not, but I hope it is... I'd rather wait a couple of more days than get a bad unit and having to wait longer to send it back and wait for another.

I would cancel mine and just pick one up locally (do John Lewis have them yet?) but I ordered it with an iMac on the “Back to school” offer so I guess its worth waiting to save that extra £85,

Thinking about it, if you cancel and buy elsewhere sooner, you might get one of the bad screens already sent out before Apple can do anything. At least we know apple are delaying them, possibly so no bad ones are sent out, so im going to hold out that little longer.

It's a race between me giving up on a dream and cancelling the thing (because of the screen issues), and them actually shipping it.

Yes that's a slip from the 01 - 02 Oct it said before, though curiously the shipping date has stayed the same, maybe it's fixed rather than variable.

Don't know what to do, I'm hoping the delay is so that they can fix the screen issues or is that wishful thinking?

I don't mind if it's dodgy if they'll be willing to replace it later, but I have this feeling they'll deny all knowledge, call BS and refuse to do anything. Would love to hear a statement from The Steve.

Mine still says 04-05 OCT so hopefully it doesn't slip to the 8th or 9th like Stetwin...I don't see why it should if stores are getting them. If it does I have the right mind to e-mail Apple and ask them why the online store is getting them later as it doesn't seem to make alot of sense...I guess if I get a good screen then it'll be worth the wait

I just happened to be in one when I heard somebody ask if they had one (this was 3 days ago, I thought the person was being a bit optimistic seeing as I though they'd be out on the 28th!) and they said they did. So I asked for one too!

I've just got back from the new Touchwood store in Solihull and they had loads of both models in stock.

They were selling very well and I'm not surprised after having a go on one, it's certainly an impressive player. If only they made one with a decent capacity :)

I called the southampton store this morning and they said they didn't have any and didn't know when they would be getting any (of the 16GB ones anyway) did they have them in stock as well as on display or just some display models?

Ordered from Comet on friday, it arrived this morning, it is a week 37 and it has got the screen problem also so i'll just keep it until my apple order (week 38 hopefully) arrives later this week and then send it back :p

It is a really lovely device though, the screen problem doesn't seem so severe on it at all at the moment only slightly affecting some darker videos, but i'm sure that i'll probably notice a big difference against a week 38.

Hiya :)

I have a 16GB coming from Comet today also - I guess I'll be straight on the phone to apple uk if it's exhibiting the same issues as yours! :P

Was yours an 8 or 16 by the way? 16 I'm guessing.

16GB, I'm just going to use it anyway until my apple order arrives and then take the comet one back to my local comet :)

If Comet have them will Dixons and PC World have them too? They are all the same company right?

No.

No. Comet is a company on its own. Currys, Currys.digital, PC World and The Link are all part of the same company - DSG Retail. Don't expect stock from them until 1st Oct at the earliest.

Ah Currys.. both begin with C. That's where I got confused.

Thanks. :o

They had the display models, and a sign next to them with "iPod touch take yours home today", I luckily managed to get a play, as the AppleStore staff seemed to pretty much only push that model onto 'customers' (I guess because of the price tag).

It is very nice though, didn't look like it had any screen issues either..
