    Rang the Apple Store Trafford centre 10am, they said systems were back up.
    I asked the guy, if he were me, knowing the stock levels, would it be worth the hours trip from Widnes, he said 'definitely'.

    I went, queued for 1Hr 10 mins and activation took 20 mins in total.

    I walked out with a fully functioning iPhone 3G white.

    Far as I can see, no screen issues.

    I was already with O2, but took out a new contract, and was treated as a new customer to O2.

    I've since released the 8GB black I was holding, until Monday, at the O2 store, Widnes.

    One COOL day. :apple::cool:

    Congrats on the white iPhone. My black 8Gb arrived in the post on friday morning. Well happy. I was in the Apple store in birmingham yesterday afternoon, and bough the dock. When i was there I asked about stock, and was told they had "loads"! Couldn't sell them because of the system problems. Apple stores stocked well though. White ones look very good. I think i need a case for mine now. Don't fancy the scratches.

    It is so bloody frustrating that if you are an existing iPhone user you can't get the white. It feels like being penalized by Apple -- but regardless, it looks great! And congratulations.

    Southampton Apple Store had more white iPhones than black 16gb's...

    Only had to queue for about an hour today too. And they have those nice iPhone bags too :)

    Because White iPhones are only on sale in Apple Stores in the UK and you can't upgrade in the Apple Stores.

    Congrats R-Fly!

    When you say that you were already on O2 but you started a new contact did you keep the same phone number?

    I am in a position were I started a contact with O2 through Carphone Warehouse which has just expired, if I wanted to upgrade I would have to do it though Carphone Warehouse however if it is possible to get a PAC code and rejoin O2 then I could also get it from Apple.

    I think we're talking about O2 here. There's been few, if any, reports of White iPhones at O2 stores, and those of us trying to purchase online weren't even given the option of a white one.

    It doesnt seem like the demand is as great as it is here in the states, I would love to wait in line for little over an hour to get an iPhone, but thats not clearly the case here in Southern Cali

    I don't know what will be quicker, O2 allowing Apple to upgrade contracts or Apple giving O2 some white iPhones so existing users can upgrade!

    Place your bets, which will come first?
