    Does anyone know when the 16GB 4S will be available to order online on 3 in the UK? Its showing as only available to pre-order in store. I would like to order online to get the quidco cashback you see.


    Thanks

    They have sold out that's why. They were available online on Friday.

    No they weren't.

    I think it's to stop Quidco on the 16GB deals to be honest.

    I'm sure someone at work ordered the 16GB from them online on Friday. I will have to check with them maybe they went with the 32GB in the end.

    quidco the 32gb, it works out cheaper than the 16gb anyway.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it was to stop quidco cashback. Also wouldn't surprise me if this is what was causing all the 'online problems' on friday and Saturday morning... maximise the telesales.

    Does anyone know when/if the 16GB will be available online? Perhaps when they get more stock? The quidco offer ends at the end of this month, so as long as its before then its fine. I would spring for the 32GB variant, but this is for my sister, who wont use the extra 16GB, so the 16GB will be just fine for her.

    Wow, was gonna get my 4s from the Three store but looks like I'm gonna get it online after seeing this offer!

    Does anyone have experience with how long Quidco take to pay you the cashback?

    I phone up three on the friday and got my 16gb white ordered...Although it was never online.

    ...and 3 have been perfect when i've been using an unofficial sim in my 3gs.

    So why do you think three are treadful is it cox you don't understand their accent innit

    Well I find them funny the way they talk sometimes fan be frustrating you ask them a question like i would like to know what offers you have for £10/month and they will repeat everything iv said and ask me before they can answer.

    They can't just get to the point maybe it was recently I called them that's why maybe not all the people at the call centre in India r like that

    A problem with 3 on the iPhone, at least in iOS 4, is that the carrier settings prevent you from switching off 3G.
    Being able to do this is useful if you're trying to maximise battery life.

    Has anyone found out the reason why on three the 16gb are unavailable ? But over telephone you can still order?


    Is it to do with the large cashback from quidco
