    Well i tried to pre order the other day only to be told my contract does not finish until next year. I have a glimmer of hope though. I'm on my dads account and he has 4 lines that finish in a few weeks. They have in the past accommodated my dad because he is a high spender and has been a customer since they started business. They said they will waiver the fee and extend the contract to get a 4s only I have to wait until the 4 lines expire.

    He has got a free IPad 2 from them a few months back so I think they will honour what they said :)

    It's fine then, i suspect that the weekends credit checks are probably on some sort of batch list to be done overnight, where as the rest are processed on a first come first served basis!

    I pre-ordered the 64Gb black on Friday and i'm currently awaiting for the item to be delivered to store.


    One question is, is there going to be stock just for the pre orders or are the phones going to come out of the stores own stock?

    This would mean people turning up to the store on Friday without a pre order could be in fact helping themselves to our phones?

    I've gone for a 12 month 1200 minute deal as works out the same price as the 600 or 900 minute deal when you factor in the inital phone cost.

    Just make sure to reduce the contract down after the 12 months is up!

    I spoke to someone in my local vodafone shop and they said they would only be getting in stock for preorders and they would not have any stock available for people to just turn up and buy on launch day.

    I got a 64gb Black on upgrade from Voda, my tariff has changed and got the order number etc, not had a second 'confirmation email' yet but on the voda forums they said that this is normal until the stock hit their warehouse sometime later today or tomorrow.

    I've gone for the £46 p/m 18 month contract with 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 750mb of data. The 32Gb phone initially cost £139 but I've got £40 from quidco and the £59 from vodafone coming back so it works out at £40 :)

    I was actually upgrading my phone. Placed an upgrade order yesterday morning and got a confirmation email. However, up on checking my online vodafone account, it was still saying I am on my old tariff. Called up Vodafone about 10 minutes ago, and was informed that there must have been a mistake on the system, as the order was being set up as a new line rather than an upgrade. 5 minutes later I had a new upgrade order placed over the phone and I can already see my new tariff online. Have been told that the phone will be despatched on thursday and I should be able to pick it up from the Moorgate store on Friday. No need to queue as they will not be allowed to sell preorders and upgrades.

    Vodafone have removed the cashback promotion but they have also reduced the prices of the phone. For the tariff I went for the phone is now £30 cheaper then what I payed including the cashback.

    I went for the 24 month £31 tariff. Before the phone cost was £259 - £59 cashback. Now the phone is just £169. What tariff are you on?
