    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if Pay & Go iPhone 3G S's will be available at the Apple store on regent street?

    Also, do you think I'd need to get there for opening or would 11am-12 ish be ok to go in and buy one? I'd hate for them to run out.

    Anyone have any tips or experience of buying them at the store?

    thanks

    it is going to be very busy!
    if you cant go till around midday - i suggest going to another store not in the square mile.

    i have a personal shopping appointment at 9am and they couldn't guarantee more than a 50% chance there will be a 32GB PAYG left.

    You're joking, I heard that last year it didn't sell out there very quickly?!

    that was because the o2 activation server crashed at 7.15am

    i was second in the queue. got in the door at 7.02 and didnt leave till close to 9am as they couldn't setup my contract. they gave up in the end, i left with the phone, but couldn't use it till the Saturday evening.

    tomorrow im buying on PAYG so shouldn't be any problems. also if i remeber correctly, PAYG wasn't available on launch

    I'm going to get there for 10am. Hopefully they'll have Pay&Go's available still.

    is there an cpw or o2 store near you? might be worth going past one of them on your way and going there if there's no queue.

    also if you have the internet wherever you will be in the morning, you should be able to check the stock on apple.com/uk and o2.co.uk/iphone like last year.

    good luck buddy!

    There are a couple of O2 stores near me but to be honest I get the feeling I'd be better off buying it from an Apple store... just in case something is wrong with it and I might need to return/have it repaired etc?
