    ****, only 3? Eeek.

    I am awake but dazed. Cannot believe it but I couldnt sleep, like a kid at XMAS! I am in Reading.

    I actually have an order from the online debacle. They rung at 17:30 yesterday to tell me I was 'unlucky' and wont get it til next Friday. I asked if I could go to a store this morning. The guy wasnt sure as I technically have a 'pending' upgrade on my account. but I think that if I have one in my hands they cannot stop me buying it.

    I'm off to the Preston store in an hour. I'm starved, but not hungry :D Buying into a new contract. Just paid £100 to cancel my T-mobile contract yesterday!

    Good luck with that, glad now I didn't manage to get an order through.
    I am now convinced the whole thing was a scam to try to ramp up the hype. As far as I can see it hasn't worked, there is hardly a mention of the launch in the UK mainstream media, have looked on the BBC www this morning and there is no sign of it.
    I am sure it is just nutters like ourselves who are aware that any of this is happening!!

    I'm still fingers crossed that todays deliveries will include some white iPhone 3G's. I rang 2 o2 stores yesterday and both said they had v. limited stock, but are recieving another delivery this am.

    So! It's probably a mahoooooosive delivery. That's my idea. *rambles more bullsh*t at 5.19am*

    yup.. me too..

    called my o2 store last night and they wouldnt disclose any numbers on stock levels..

    i said i wanted the 16gb and they said they haven't got many.. i asked if that meant 5, 10, 50.. but they wouldnt say :(

    peeves me off.. i only want an indication really so i'm not wasting my frigging time

    anyway.. bus is in 20 mins so i should be there just before 6am.. hopefully i'll be the first, but knowing my luck there will be 5 others al wanting 16gb's and when my turn comes they'll all be out of stock!! lol

    I'm resisting the urge to go to 02 or CPW because I want the white one. But i don't know if i can -- wait! Anybody in the same situation?

    Left the house at 5:15 this morning with my laptop bag. Felt like a right sad b4st4rd! :) I could almost hear a Victoria Wood-esque voice over as I went to get the bus into town. LOL
