    When reserving the iPhone, it says about booking after 9pm, which is cool. Once reserved can we collect any time of the day? As I'm looking to do this and pick it up after work at 7pm, it closes at 9pm.

    correct, however you'll be lucky to find any store that has any stock.

    Well apparently you can try reserving online after 9pm, it worked last night for my mate in London. Just didn't know if they kept it reserved all day or if it was only till a certain time

    has anyone managed to find a store that has any available to reserve yet?
    i've checked every day, and the 2 local stores here never have any.

    Absolutely nothing in the Manchester Arndale store. I went in today just to have a look around and asked about availability. They said they get deliveries everyday but they are reserved for people.

    I'm still waiting for mine off Vodafone. It seems like the White is very popular this year!

    that doesn't sound right. how can they be reserved when there is never any stock showing to be able to reserve.

    I think some are kept back for walk-in/queueing customers
    Unable to reserve at any of the stores in and around London still. O2 stock is very low & sporadic too

    If you have time, do what I did at the Grand Arcade store in Cambridge. Go in at 12pm - which is when the final reserve pickup time from the night before expires and they had several that people hadn't come in to pick up. I got an unlocked white 4s.

    Just came across this thread again. As i was unable to find any within the "Manchester" stores i ordered offline. Currently its preparing for shipment, this has take two weeks though. I just hope when i do get it their are no problems as this would be annoying to say the least!

    Me and my iPad have become best friends since not having an iPhone though! :)
