    I've never pre-ordered a phone before so I have a few questions.
    1) do you give O2 all your personal details and CC details bofore the launch then when it launches you just go into the store and pick it up?
    2) How big will the que be at an average town O2 at open?
    3) Will they do midnight launch?

    Me too, waiting on what the PAYG sim will offer as getting o2 unlimited 3g data for a year was a massive selling point for me, now they have capped it its really taken away one of the main features for me.Hopefully one of the other providers will also have a PAYG iphone on apple store with a better PAYG sim deal.

    I popped into my local 3 shop and carphone warehouse, asked both shops:

    Will you be taking pre-orders: Both stores said no.
    3 said they can take down contact details (ie pre-order) for contracts only atm. not payg.

    Will you early or extended opening hours on the day? both said most likely.

    Both stores did mention they dont have any further information, they have only recieved limited information from their head offices. No prices either for payg handsets, however the manager at the 3 shop said the 16gb will be in the region of £500. :eek:

    O2 didn't do pre-orders last year, you could only buy on the day. So no one really can answer these questions until O2 release more information.

    Anyone know if you can use a debit card to pay or does it have to be a credit card? I know you have to use one in the U.S just wondering if it's the same here.
