O2's stock checker indicates that all of my stores have stock of iPhone 5's so I'll just try and get down there for 6/7am

Sorry I didn't get any. To give you an idea we queued from the fire exit by the side, outside, and at around 6am it easily stretched to the boots entrance.

Got squashed inside around 7, to my count is was 83rd in the queue, give or take. I got here at 1:30.

Left the store at 9:20, iPhone in hand. I had the stock level number 3,000 passed around a few times, but with the amount of customers, even 2 per customer, they won't make it to the end of the queue. Can't see the end as I'm drinking a coffee right now.

On the plus side, network stores have a max line of 20 from what I can see.

As far as I could tell USB cables and micro in adapters. Just left, the queue is around 300 deep still. Already out of 16gb black maybe others too.

I highly doubt you'll get one unless you're somewhere in that queue right now.
