Re: Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus & iPhone X Megathread

its frankly a joke that pre-orders go live in less than 4 days and we still have no information about how much they will be selling the phone for or the cost of the tariffs... hell, we dont even know the time on friday they will go on preorder yet. this is becoming a joke.

In the past, pre-orders have started at 8am but would be nice for O2 to confirm fo those after the handset

Will o2 have enough stock to fulfil pre orders this time round?

Re: Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus & iPhone X Megathread

I was on live chat earlier and eventually (after about 20min and 2 advisors) they confirmed it is 8am preorders open however they couldn't tell me when more info would be out re tariffs.

The 64GB handset is enough for me but I was hoping they'd have a smaller data allowance and higher upfront cost available to the one tariff that is currently online. For example carphone warehouse got a £64pm for 26GB but £100 upfront. But apparently o2 chat say you can pay a lump sum off after 2 months to bring down monthly cost. Wasn't aware of this.

Seems unfair if all the networks are waiting until 8am Friday to release all of their tariffs in full as won't give anyone time to consider before preorder opens

Re: Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus & iPhone X Megathread

Also, can anyone explain, if I get a tariff which includes the yearly upgrade programme, if I don't want to upgrade and keep my phone for the full 24m, after 24 months when I upgrade (even if it is just 24 months and 1 day) can I keep that handset or would I always have to recycle it regardless of when it is? I don't want to be on a tariff where I have to hand my phone back/recycle it at any point as I give my old handsets to parents/will give to my kids. Thanks

@Anonymous If you pay the full 24 months the handset is yours only if you take advantage of the offer do you return it

Re: Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus & iPhone X Megathread

Hi,

 

I am looking to get hold of the iphone X. I would like to preorder it when it becomes avaialable but i have some barriers to doing that.

 

I was told i wasnt allowed to upgrade because i had a disconnection 2 months ago and o2 require 6 months of payments to allow me to upgrade.

 

I am willing to pay off my current device plan but apparantly that doesnt count. 

 

Can anyone help me get hold of an iphone X with all this going on? An o2 employee i mean. One way or the other i will get an iphone X on pre-order. If i have to leave o2 to make that happen i will do that. I would rather stay with o2 indefinitely because i am happy here but must secure that X to facilitate my dopamine fix! 

 

Also, do pre-orders open online for o2 at midnight or are we literally unable to upgrade until 8am 27th?

 

If someone can call me to discuss this for 5 minutes that would be swell.

@Anonymous I also confirmed just a couple of posts up its 8am. All networks/Apple are 8am in the U.K as far as I know.

Re: Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus & iPhone X Megathread

Been looking online and a lot of websites are showing sky mobiles different tariffs (however I can't find them anywhere on their own website!). They seem much cheaper than others that are already out, e.g starting at £42 for 500mb, £47 for 1gb, £52 for 5gb and 57 for 10gb all with no upfront cost.

Compare that to carphone warehouse and Vodafone who have already released their tariffs, in very surprised compared to usual iPhone releases the prices seem very different to each other. There's normally nothing to compare other than a slightly higher upfront for a slightly lower monthly cost but from what I've seen so far the prices vary quite a lot, anyone else think that??
