    They have iPhones back in stock, both versions.

    Edit: Just click on the banner and then you can order either version. Also the status shows the iPhones as being "In Stock".

    If they don't give me an iPhone from my order on Monday which is still on the first stage of the order process now I'm gonna be so annoyed.

    Surely they must think they've got enough stock to fulfill all current orders? Come on CPW, don't do an O2 on us!

    Thanks for the info!

    In my personal opinion, I wouldn't bother.

    It's highly unlikely that if you do manage to secure a unit, and an order number, that that unit will ship and arrive, tomorrow. :(

    Yeah I know. I'm going to go to a store tomorrow (Apple or O2, haven't decided which yet). But I thought if anyone was still interested in purchasing online then CPW might be the way forward since O2 seem to have made a complete balls up of their online pre-ordering system.

    Can they do anything at CPW?? I asked about upgrading in sotre and they said this:

    Thank you for your email.

    You would need to contact O2 Direct to ask about whether you can upgrade
    your old iPhone to the new 3G iPhone.

    This is because it is O2 Direct who handle your billing and service
    provision and therefore this would be their decision.

    You can contact O2 Direct on 08705 860 860.

    I trust this is fully resolved for you. If there's anything else we can
    do to help you please reply to this email.

    Regards

    It's highly unlikely.

    Delivery is possibly going to be Monday/Wednesday next week.

    Thought id give it a go. They also still advertise the, "Pre-order on pay monthly today and be one of the first to own one. Free delivery on 11th July." Nothing to lose really.

    From the cpw site

    ''Please note: due to the current high volumes of orders that are being placed, unfortunately we cannot guarantee next day delivery''

    So your probably get it one Monday which isn't to bad.

    I've been at stage 1 since Monday. I emailed CPW, I just got this reply


    Dear Mrs

    Thank you for your email.

    Thank you for placing your order for the new 3G iPhone with ourselves
    and I am sorry for the confusion regarding your order.

    I can not check on your order specifically as you would need to speak
    to
    our ESales Department about this. You can contact ESales on 0208 896
    5400. One of my colleagues will be able to track your order and give
    you
    an update.

    I can confirm that although our stocks of iPhones did run out due to
    the
    high demand for this product, all customer's that ordered their iPhone
    before Tuesday 8th July 2008 will have their iPhone on launch day.

    If you have asked for your iPhone to be delivered to store then this
    will definitely be available for collection on Friday 11th July 2008.
    Please take some photo ID and an utility bill with you so that the
    necessary credit checks can be performed in store.

    If you have requested home delivery your handset will be dispatched on
    11th July 2008 but due to high demand you may receive it on 12th July
    2008. We apologise in advance if this is the case.

    I trust this is fully resolved for you. If there's anything else we can

    do to help you please reply to this email.

    Regards
    Deborah Biddle

    I dont think you will get anything on the 12th July, the courier is City Link and you have to pay extra for Saturday delivery. (Unlike the Royal Mail for example) shows how much thought went into the reply you received.

    What a joke. As my first order through CPW (earlier this week) failed, and I've since set up an account with O2 to get around the credit approval process, I decided to try again. My order went through fine and I've received both email and text confirmation.

    Just to be sure I decided to give them a call (as the last time there was NO notification that there was an issue with the order whatsoever). Sat on hold for 45 minutes only to be disconnected. So *that's* how staff are dealing with high call volumes.... pick up, hang up, pick up, hang up, pick up......

    Disgraceful! :mad:

    Not for existing iPhone upgrade customers. So, once again, if we have to work for a living and can't go to stand outside a store tomorrow, we are screwed over and have to wait for O2 to get some sort of ordering system working. Why they can't have a pre-ordering system I don't know :mad:

    I've read somewhere on these forums that white will be available from Apple Stores from tomorrow.
