    Hi All,

    just wanted to share my good news of getting the elusive e mail from Uk Apple tonight confirming I have been successful after 14 attempts on reserving an iphone 5 16gb Sim Free.

    Happy days.

    Good luck to the rest of you waiting.

    :D

    bandofbrothers, did you try different names or email addresses every day? Or just tried ONE email for 14 days?
    Thanks!

    I tried two different e mail addressees for the first 7 attempts, then just went on to using my primary e mail address for 7 attempts after that, the 14th being successful.

    Actually ONLY 3rd day of trying. I got a confirmation to one of my emails at 8:30pm tonight.

    Some helpful details:
    1. 6-10 different IP's per day
    2. Different email/name to each IP
    3. Each "user" made a reservation for white AND black 16GB iPhones in ALL following shops:
    London, White City
    London, Regent Street
    London, Brent Cross
    London, Covent Garden
    London, Stratford City
    Milton Keynes, Milton Keynes
    Watford, The Harlequin
    Grays, Essex, Lakeside
    Greenhithe, Kent, Bluewater
    Kingston upon Thames, Bentall Centre
    Reading, The Oracle
    Bromley, The Glades

    The successful reservation was made for Bluewater at about 10:20am, so definitely NO first come first serve basis, as my other "users" reserved iPhones in ALL shops at 9:00, 9:30 etc
    And you can at least try as much shops as you want everyday!

    Good luck!!!
