    Hi all,

    I Pre-ordered a Iphone 4 for collection at Brent cross on Tuesday, and web site did say my Iphone will be reserved until the end of play on 24th.

    But did not get a e-mail confirming my pre-order.

    Just called Apple to confirm my reservation, and they say the Iphone 4 reserve was a mistake and its a first come, first serve basis.

    Did i miss this? does everyone in the UK know there Iphone reservation was a mistake by apple and nobodys phones are reserved?

    Duck.

    It's a farce if you ask me! How can it be a mistake, the reservation process was specifically created and put online by Apple. It's not like it's a case of "Ooops I pressed the wrong button and now a whole online reservation system has been magically created".

    I can't get to the store in the morning because of work and I go on holiday on Saturday. I'd like a 5 megapixel camera with flash and a HD video camcorder to be part of my phone for my holiday.

    If this really is true, Apple should send out an email to all those that reserved to explain everything.

    I'm trying to call Brent cross to find out if this is the case, but nobody is picking up.

    I've got to confirm this.

    Is this because you didn't get an email confirming your pre-order that they said this....?

    As a pre-order is confirmed via an email.

    Yes, about half an hour after I reserved :)

    It will be the email address that is tied to your apple id.

    I reserved one for myself at Meadowhall and my mate at Arndale. We both received confirmation e-mails. He popped into Arndale yesterday and they confirmed his is showing as reserved on their systems. Providing you received the confirmation email, your iPhone IS reserved.

    I reserved one from my girlfriend and recieved the confirmation email (to my old address - thought I hadn't got it for a while!), and I called the store yesterday to confirm. They said it was on the system and will be there for her on the 24th!

    I just got back from the Bren cross store.

    The Iphone reserve system was down, and they was unable to let anyone know if there request was accepted.

    However, after 20 minutes with this problem they did confirm my IPhone 4 is on reserve for thursday and apologised for the lack of communication.
