    I am currently in the UK and want to buy an unlocked iPhone 4 but all Apple Stores in London are sold out.

    What do local members suggest I do to get one soon?

    Thank you

    try an authorised Apple reseller like Stormfront. They have lots of locations within reach of London. Give some stores a ring and see what days they get their delivery in.

    Whilst you're looking it wouldn't hurt to have one on order from Apple's website in the meantime. Despite the 3 week shipping time which it says, mine was delivered within less than ten days.

    The stores do get stock, but they sell out very fast. Walking in and hoping they have stock - you will never get anything. The only way is to line up for a few hours before the store even opens. This however doesn't even guarantee you getting any stock - but if there is, this will be the only way to get it. You will never be able to walk into a store and be told "oh yeah, we have a few".

    Try online, I ordered mine (32gb) on 31/8, and despite being quoted a delivery date of 25/9 it turned up on 7/9.

    I think the 32g delivers fairly quickly. Mine is meant to be shipped out on the 16th but the web tracking page still says it's not shipped.

    Yes, I got the 'dispatching' notice on the 4th, and it arrived on the 7th (being specific I actually got it on the 8th as I wasnt home on the 7th and had to go to collect it from UPS the following day)

    That's awesome. :)

    Still not sure about the size.
    Can someone tell me how big the pictures and the 720p videos are that the iphone 4 takes?

    Not sure you should be posting this as fact; I'm very happy with my 16gb.

    I was told 3 weeks delivery form Apple store UK, nearly two weeks now and still nothing so I think the 3 may be right.

    Can you still reserve the phone in store?

    And how long does it take before it's ready for collection?

    Just had a look on the Apple website and they are now offering the iPhone 4 with 6 months interest free credit. If they can't meet demand why would they do that?

    I am currently looking at buying a new motorbike - a model which is just about to be replaced and they are now offering 0% finance in order to shift them. I am not saying they are about to "update" the iPhone 4..........

    It's not as if they're trying to shift a warehouse full of stock, considering they sell as fast as they can make them, unlike with that motorbike.
