    Well, I hardly doubt that I don't have to explain the situation any further and I’m sure anyone from the UK (and outside) are well aware that we’ve yet to be told a launch time.

    I called my own Apple store moments ago and was told by the friendly man that they’ve still yet to hear anything, which, given that it’s the day prior at 11AM, seems kind of odd to me. I was told to continue watching the website and if nothing, call back later in hopes they’ve been given some information. I feel I should stress at this moment that my browsers refresh button is starting to feel violated.

    So getting myself into a nerd sweat here, It’s going to be launching tomorrow officially right? I can go into store and sign up for one, right?

    RIGHT?!

    I just don’t want to miss it; I avoided getting the last phone because I knew an upgrade wasn’t that far off in the horizon and I don’t wanna have to wait months for them to get more shipments back in. I want one, tomorrow.

    Do you think we’ll find out today, or is Apple up to something?

    Someone help me out :(

    Maybe you'll need to go to an O2/Carphone warehouse for the iPhone.

    I would imagine there will be daily shipments, at least to the Apple stores, as that's what they are doing here in the US. So any outages should get filled quickly.

    Well I figured as much – but it’s just confusing what with being told different stories left right and center. Some people are saying o2 are opening at midnight, some say it’s 8am tomorrow – I just want a time (me and half the country, heh) so that I don’t turn up and there’s none left. I’d be so pissed.

    This is what Apple Regents Street Store says as well. It's because Apple doesn't have access to O2's upgrade systems and therefore can't perform the upgrade themselves.

    I take it this was in-store/over phone -- still don't see any updates to any of the apple.com/uk/retail pages as far as opening times

    After death and taxes, I reckon third thing in life you can be assured of is that if you have got an iPhone 3G by EOB Friday, you'll probably not get one over the weekend.
