iPhone 5, Apple Store Watford - Plenty of Stock after launch day
Went into the new Apple Store in watford this morning and was turned away. Phoned back up at lunchtime and was told they had 'plenty'.
Went down there, picked up a white 16gig on the awesome 'Three' plan.
The shop wasn't really all that busy. From walking in to getting served was around 2 minutes. Faultless! They even asked if I wanted to quickly open the box to make sure it didnt have any defects.
The store member said they had about 15 palets of them brought in about an hour before I got there!
Looks like the 'limited supply' was a hype builder!

Just called this store now at 11am, they have 0 stock on unlocked versions.
The girl on the phone was a right ****. Every question I asked politely the only response I got was "I can't say!"

Me: "Could you tell me if you expect to get any iPhones in stock tomorrow"
Her: "Dont know."
Me: "Oh ok, any idea what my chances are of getting one if I come in tomorrow then".
Her: "No idea, we're busy so is there anything else you want."
I put the phone down on her...I know its busy but the miserable attitude wasn't needed.
Given that all of the iPhones arent carrier locked, you'll probably find they are limiting a certain percentage of the stock to contract only.
