I just went into the O2 store in Maidenhead to ask about stock, the staff in there were so rude and unhelpful! I am on the "new phone on us" 30gb tariff and I explained this to the guy in there and that I was wondering when I might be able to get my hands on a 7+, I was nice as I could be and don't see why I should have been treated like this
ME: I'm on the 30gb "new phone on us" tariff and I know that stock of the iPhone 7 are low, I was just wondering whether you got daily deliveries of them to sell in the store and if it was worth me popping in a few times after 25th September to see if you had any?
O2: We're not getting any until the end of November
ME: That's quite a long time isn't it, is that for all the iPhones or just the Plus?
O2: End of November for all of them
ME: Ok, is it best to call a store to see if you've got the handsets on a particular day?
O2: I've got a 7 and a 7+ here that you can look at if you like, but you can't have one
ME: No thanks, not if I can't have one. The phone shop next door has quite a few of the 7's in but no plusses, would you just be able to call and check if you're going to get in any soon please as the shops round here seem to be getting deliveries?
O2: You call them if you want to speak to them [he then throws the shop phone onto the counter]
After that I left the store, I don't appreciate being treated like that. It also got me wondering why O2 are getting stock it seems like later than everybody else? Maybe credit problems as they recently tried to sell the company didn't they?
I've been with them for years but they seem to be going down the pan a bit lately so I think I'm going to leave like many others
