I placed my new phone upgrade on the 26th of September, money was debited but got an email shortly after saying the phone was out of stock.
I understand supplier delays but this wait has been crazy. I called during week 2 of the wait and the rep told me that yes they are experiencing delays with certain Apple products - the phone is an iPhone 11 so not a hugely in demand phone right now - and she told me not to cancel because I'm in week 2 and it's a 2 week wait period currently.
That time period has now passed and I'm still bewildered, the order is still processing and there's been absolutely no update.
What are my options? Has my order just slipped through the cracks supplier-wise? I feel like calling a rep again won't do much because they don't have control over it and I don't want to go through this waiting process again. In about a week it'll be a full month of no updates.

Welcome to the o2 Community forum
Unfortunately o2 do not seem to have stocks
Argos have plenty of iPhone 11 in different colours too 128Gb . Doesn't seem to be a shortage there 🥴
Sorry about your order with o2 .
It may be an awful experience but it would be wise to follow up the order with customer services.
PS you do need to find out your options with C.S. You may have considered this but could you get into an o2 shop. I got my Samsung android from a o2 shop and they were so helpful and set it up got it up and running great experience. 👍
Thanks for the responses.
I got off the phone with customer services a bit ago and was told that it's a 4+ week waiting period (not sure why the other girl told me 2 weeks, but maybe it changed). Unfortunately I'm not in the position where I can leave home and go to a shop.
Honestly I wouldn't mind the wait if I had known beforehand that the phone was out of stock and there's issues with re-stocking and delivery that's out of o2's control. I get that things like this happen. But it's just shoddy practice to sell something that you know you don't have and then leaving customers in the dark for weeks, it feels intentionally misleading and from looking around the forum it seems like this is a really common issue 😞 Going to keep waiting but probably the last contract I'll ever have with o2, sadly.
I'm in similar situation, I decided to go for a contract for iPhone 12 which was in stock, then got email with "Hey great news full steam ahead!", 2 min later sorry it's out of stock.
I understand shortages but they already made me sign the contract, took my direct debit details etc.
WHAT ON EARTH THEY THINK THEY'RE DOING.
Has anyone got out of the O2 contract before the waiting game ended? Help,
I don't want to be tied with this company for next 2 years.
