    It just seems silly to me if sombody went to an Apple Store and was sent away to an Carphone Warehouse or 02 shop?

    Does anybody have any insider information on this? :apple:

    Until apple figure out how to credit check and sign you up to O2 from inside the store they will only be selling the PAYGO phones, which as others have said might not be until later in the year.

    Regent St. Apple store has a full calendar of events on the 11th, which they definitely didn't for the first iPhone.

    It's not like they can't change them: Friday 11th.
    10:00 am - 11:00 am Mac OS X Leopard Workshop
    11:00 am - 12:00 pm iWork '08 Workshop
    12:00 pm - 1:00 pm iPhone Workshop
    1:00 pm - 2:00 pm iWeb Workshop
    2:00 pm - 3:00 pm iMovie and iDVD Workshop
    3:00 pm - 4:00 pm iPhoto Workshop
    4:00 pm - 5:00 pm GarageBand Workshop
    6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PC to Mac Workshop
    7:00 pm - 8:00 pm iLife '08 Workshop

    Usually the majority of the audience at Regent Street is there for the comfy seats and free wi-fi. I'd imagine the shop is going to be buzzing with iPhone, and the above schedule is subject to change.

    The shop is going to have a huge crowd trying out the new iPhones, purchasing them, the 3G iPhone ads will be being added to the stock reels if it hasn't already... They could actually easily have a full day on 3G iPhone and still keep the schedule:
    e.g .the 11am slot, 12pm slot, 6pm slot.

    So you think there is a chance that Apple may sell iPhones then we go and get an 02 Sim Card from an 02 store?

    nope... that would not stop the unlocking, hacking and selling on.
