From previous reports on here that is not uncommon and it's anyone's guess when phones will be back in stock.
Suggest you keep on calling CS for updates.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

And here we go again. Lets hope if the takeover goes ahead this practice is kicked out. I can't believe it is still happening if honest... slight_frown

It may be worth considering cancelling the online order, wait a day or so for o2's systems to update ,and carry out the order in your local O2 store.

You can ring ahead to ensure they have stock if you wish.

Personally I would go to your local o2 store and see if they have stock. If they do then cancel your online order and walk out with the phone.

If refresh is not a deal breaker or if you are paying in full for the phone try carphone warehouse as they can upgrade your o2 contract and might be cheaper

It is, quite honestly, continued bad service. Seemed to start in September with the launch of the iPhone 6. It hasn't improved. Personally I wouldn't be putting myself out chasing it up...if O2 didn't want my business I would take it elsewhere. I think far too many people are being held to ransom about Refresh. This should NOT affect stock levels.:smileysad:

Given that Giffgaff are able to operate a site that controls stock then o2 (who own GG) should also be able to.

It has been suggested that o2 order handsets in based on orders outstanding. Be interesting to know if that is true and if so how they can morally advertise next day delivery when they know they don't have the stock
