Whilst we’re continuing to fulfil the vast majority of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus orders, unfortunately we haven’t received enough stock to fulfil some outstanding iPhone 7 Plus 128GB (Black) orders that some customers may have been expecting this week. Some iPhone 7 models are still in short supply across the market – we understand this may cause frustration and disappointment and would like to reassure you we’re doing everything we can to minimise the delay. Impacted customers will receive a text from us within the next few days and we’ll be in touch with a further update on 22nd December, or sooner if we have more news. Please point anyone asking about this specific device to this post.

@TobySo do we have too just keep waiting and waiting and not to get any sort of conpensation at all?? This is ridiculous, i bet that you change the date again on the 22nd. I like everyone want answers about what is going on!!

I am that far away from my original order date of the 17th September that when I finally do get my iPhone 7+ I will have to pay over 3 'moths up front to upgrade to the next eventual iPhone! The whole reason for the upgrade refresh is so I can get a new iPhone each year around there release date.
This is out of order on o2's part.

I get told that I would be paying that on a new handset and yes that's right but I'd be paying a new phone and new contract. You are costing me £60 extra so far so I want this refunded.
I asked for my contract to be cancelled and I give you the 6s plus back as I think that's fare and I'll go else where like direct to apple but o2 won't do that either
Bottom line o2 NEED to sort it out or compensate! I'm going to see my solicitor about this and the ombudsman cos I'm being screwed so maybe legal route might work over customer loyalty

That way we haven't paid more money for no reason and our upgrade for the iPhone 8 is still in rough date for 2017....makes sense more than being offered nothing but a poor service

It might also be a good idea if O2 updated their "iPhone 7 update" web page, which hasn't been altered since the 6th October. Come on O2 - you really need to do a LOT better!
I hate to think how many loyal customers they have lost through this debacle.

Hi Toby, many thanks. I understand this is not an O2's fault but due to Apple shortage, however I am, as many others, paying a premium for an annual update (refresh, yearly upgrade on us). I have now been paying 3 months extra (upgraded on 25th of September, phone now expected for not before the 22nd of December), and I would expect either a refund of the 3 past months (this is what actually I was told it was going to happen in store when I ugraded) or the possibility to upgrade next year 3 months earlier. I hope O2 will take care and protect its customers. Kind regards
