    I missed the boat and got shown 3-4 week delivery for iPhone 6 Plus 128gb but I'd still like to get a sim-free phone either on launch day or a couple of days after.

    Anyone know where to get one in London? Do you reckon the Apple Store will still have stock after the launch day?

    I guess places like CPW won't have it sim-free?

    I got my 5S from CPW last year, but you have to remember it auto locks to the first SIM you put in.

    Three unlocked it for me no problem.

    Only way to get one on launch day now is to queue up at an Apple Store VERY EARLY.

    You can also see if you can get one at CPW, put a Three sim in and then get them to unlock it.

    Excellent idea about CPW with three sim card - I guess PAYG would work?

    Apple are the only store that will have (well, they did have, probably all sold out now unless you queue up REALLY early) unlocked iPhone's on launch day.

    Other shops like Carphone Warehouse etc. have to wait a few weeks until you can buy a SIM-free iPhone.

    Phones4U apparently still has stock for launch day. They went into administration today, but they're not closing down as of yet.

    What about moving out of London to pick one up? Could be easier.

    Why even risk buying from them now? (If that's even possible)

    Because they're not completely stopping their sales, they're just in administration... They still have a contract with EE until March next year, so they're not going anywhere any time soon.
