Hello all, Just thought id report back on what I was told today. I visited an o2 Store in the midlands, to enquire about the UK launch, and if there would be accessories available to purchase on launch. I ended up speaking to a very plesant and helpfull young man, who spent around 15minutes calmly discussing the iPhone and O2 partnership. Here are the facts that he told me, 1, There was an O2 conference yesterday to discuss O2's operations plan for the iPhone 3G launch in the Uk, they really want It to be a very successful and painless launch. 2, The main point he told me was this, From July 1st All O2 stores in the UK will offer pre registration Credit checks, You can come in store, have your contract setup for you, and a unique registration code given to you. The contract will simply be "paused" and wont be activated. No details are taken about which model phone you are going to be purchasing. You can then turn up on July 11th and quote the registration code and then make a standard purchase of the phone and then the contract will become activated. *addition* He also made it clear that, NO iPhones will be leaving any O2 store without a Credit check and Contract being signed for, this point was raised strongly by Apple this year to O2, they want to really crack down on Unlocking in the UK, and to stop the UK being a hub for distribution of Unlocked iPhone 3G's. 3, The opening times are still not fixed, but the time proposed at the conference was 7am July 11th 2008. 4, Each O2 store will receive ready for launch day, 5000 iPhone units. (same amount as the original iPhone launch) 5, Apple Retail stores will only be selling the Pay as You Go Tariffs in Store. 6, And Finally Not quite sure what he meant by this but, O2 have spent alot of time and money, sending messages and marketing to other network providers such as Orange, Tmobile and 3, with regards to the iPhone launch on 11th July. Thank you for Reading.
