    I was just checking o2's online shop when I was met with this page. I would presume this is for pre-orders or something of the sort for the iPhone.

    EDIT: Here's a screenshot for you.

    UPDATE: As of 8AM the store is now taking orders.

    Dang-diddly-ang!

    I was going to post this, but I found the German version of Nena's "99 Red Balloons" online and one thing led to another and by the time I got round to it, GAS had beaten me too it.

    Hope it's back up soon :D

    P.S. Nena and Kim Wilde released a cracking single called Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime fairly recently.

    The text behind the images:


    "Thanks for visiting the O2 Online Shop

    Due to extremely high demand, we're unable to process orders online at present.

    For details about the iPhone, please visit http://www.o2.co.uk/iphone.

    To find out more about our latest deals please call
    0844 800 2200
    Or visit o2.co.uk to find out more about our products and services "

    (It's readable if you check the source code for the page out)

    So basically they're overlaying graphics saying that the upgrade online shop is currently unavailable, but hidden underneath is a text based message saying that due to demand they aren't processing orders online at present...

    The graphics's text kind of indicates that the upgrade online shop will be available soon :)

    Oh Yeah!!!

    Be one of the first to get an iPhone 3G
    The iPhone 3G is now available for upgrade online. Demand is expected to be very high and orders will be delivered on a first come first served basis. We'll deliver as many orders as possible on 11th July and then delivery may take up to 2 weeks. We'll send you an SMS the day before delivery to let you know it's on the way.

    To upgrade you'll need your account number which you can find on your online bill. You will also need a credit or debit card if the cost of your upgrade is more than £100.

    the maintenance page has now changed to give a 0870 number to buy now..

    just a heads up that the freephone number is: 0800 0890281

    (taken from www.saynoto0870.com)

    but if you do call, they open from 08:30 - 21:00 mon-fri!! lol..

    O2 Now Taking Orders.

    Just got an E-mail saying they are taking orders on their site from 8am this morning. Contract only from what I can see in the E-mail which is a major disappointment even though I already knew from the CPW E-mail last week and the "Later this year" things...I still held hope lol.

    Online it says in the E-mail but surely by phone too later in the day and possibly in store. Im guessing.

    Did anyone get the text? I was woken up with O2 telling me it was now available online! Hurry up and finish maintenance. How about delivery? Does everyone think most will be delivered on Friday? Or is it worth just going to a store?

    I have a question:

    I'm unsure exactly how much money I've got in my account so would I be able to purchase it with another member of my family's card? I have the cash just not in my account and I fear the time I've went to the bank and paid money in I'll be too late!

    despite signing up almost immediately after the pre-reg started, I have never received an email or text from them, they clearly think i'm geeky enough to find it myself.

    I think you should definitely go to a store and leave the delivery ones to me. i mean to save yourself the hassle. yeah, that's definitely it.
