    Hey. I've been trying to get ahold of an iPhone 3G upgrade for a few days now and cannot seem to find anywhere in stock. My local o2 shop had them in stock yesterday morning but had sold out by 10AM. They said their next delivery is around Wednesday next week.

    I phoned CPWH and asked them to process the upgrade through the phone and send me a 3G iPhone, which they tried to do, however the upgrade came back as Failed for some reason, so they told me to contact o2, who said that I was eligible for an upgrade and it was a fault with CPWH.

    Anyway, does anyone know if I can go into a CPWH shop and get them to upgrade me in store and get a iPhone there and then?. I have 3 local stores near me and only 1 o2 store.

    Cheers.

    Great, thanks. It seas on the CPWH website that stores will have stock of the 3G iPhone from 2PM today. Hopefully, I'll be able to pick one up.

    Got mine through the Crewe store. Staff were really helpful, and apologetic for the shambolic launch for which they weren't responsible. You won't be disappointed!!

    So, just to be clear, there is no disadvantage for current 2G iPhone owners to upgrade at CPW rather than an O2 shop? No longer wait to transfer phone number over to new phone or anything like that? If you upgrade through CPW is your contract directly with O2 or are you on contract with CPW? I really hate CPW but I'm starting to get desperate now, hence the questions!

    No, there is no difference, except CPWH take your details. Even if you took your current iPhone 2G contract out with o2, you can still upgrade to a 3G iPhone at CPWH.

    I will do it as soon as I have time.

    I tried that before I picked one up from the store. My upgrade was declined for some reason. It was fine when I went in store though.
