@Amynight6 You can't be sure other providers have stock available. To my knowledge no-one runs a live stock system. The reason for low stock is actually getting the phones to the UK from China. No doubt you have read the news about lack of lorry drivers? So transportation is the problem.
A way round it is to order directly from Samsung. One member on here ordered theirs a week ago and it arrived yesterday (which is earlier than Samsung promised) I believe Samsung do payment plans.
