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

@Anonymous but how do you know you definitely want an o2 tariff as there's so much to choose from between the different networks from what I can see. Just curious as I can't choose from the info that's out so far!

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

@Anonymous I’m on the tarring that gives me a free upgrade after 12 months. My upgrade has been available for me for over a month so was on the understanding that I just walk into the store, and they give me a new phone on the same contract.
Unless I’m able to terminate the contract after paying off the remaining year of the 24 month. Done so by returning my current iPhone (which is what I have to do for the upgrade)
O2 works for me for signal where I am so I’m happy to stay even if it costs a little more.

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

iPhone X pre-orders go live tomorrow morning from 8:01am.

 

Are you excited? You should be! We expect demand to be huge so if this is a device you're interested in, we'd recommend pre-ordering as soon as you can. When you pre-order, you'll see an estimated delivery date on the product page. You can track your order via My O2, and we'll also be in touch via SMS/email with any delivery/order updates.

The FAQ section has been updated with additional info regarding iPhone X, including info on student discount, O2 Open, friends & family discounts, unlocking info, if you're on a Yearly Upgrade (YUP) tariff, etc. Check it out.

Re: Apple Event Megathread

@Chris_K any info on how much tariffs for the 256gb model will cost or what the highest upfront cost tariff offered for it will be? its frustrating not being able to know any form of cost information until the minute you are trying to rush to buy it in time for launch day, why is this info not available even now, less than 14hrs from preorder?

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

@Dancamz spot on. Very unreasonable not to release tariff info until the time preorders open. For me it's not about which o2 tariff but which network. Been with them for 18 years since they were BT Cellnet but no loyalty now as the price differences between the networks on info available so far is vast. So by the time I've digested all information then got through on the phone/website god knows when delivery will be expected, if there's any stock left at all!

At least you've learned one lesson being with O2 for so long

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

Can you pre-order and collect in store? From previous experience O2 never deliver new iphones on time. 

 

I've always managed to go to the O2 store on release date and get a new iphone. But stock is obviously an issue in the case of the iphone X
