    Just wondering if any of you guys from the UK have the same going on. I bought my reserved iPhone 4 16gb (£499) on launch day direct from the Apple Store (Cardiff), as did my friend. The money still hasn't been taken for either of us, neither has it come out of our 'available balance' when usually any purchase does that instantly.

    Not that I'm complaining but it's a bit confusing - anyone else still got the money in their account?

    took me about 7 attempts before she gave up trying to use the handheld terminal and bought a giftcard for the same amount at the main till. the wireless system they use obviously can't cope with the demands of a launch day

    they should use an iphone and square payment system :D

    Their handheld terminals are some kind of Fujitsu piece of crap. No idea what OS they'll be running - WinCE, probably :)

    The money came out of my debit account yesterday.

    I thought Apple had switched to their EasyPay iPod System?
