0700 - 0730 the precise time doesn’t exactly matter, the phone was always going to be out of stock within minutes but as a direct result of them making the system live early and against the time they quoted both in the phone, on their website and on this thread therefore lots of customers lost out in getting a device on release day and instead are left waiting, not exactly good business practice on o2’s part.

I have noticed the space grey 256gb iPhone x has a 4 week delivery estimate now. When I placed my order it said 6+ weeks. Will my delivery time have gone down now considering it has online?

Yeah just checked and it’s changed from more than 6 to more than 4 so let’s hope it arrives quicker. There could be a load of folk cancelling their order freeing up stock with some luck.

Hi

I’m aware that there is a generic iPhone 8 / iPhone X thread, however this is more for people who have pre-ordered their phones and their current order status

I ordered an iPhone X 256GB Space Grey at 07:34
It is currently showing as “In Progess”

I’m guessing it won’t change to “Dispatched” till some point next week?

Hi
Do you know what time O2 started taking iPhone x preorders? I'm guessing 7:30am. Does anybody know if they will get theirs next week?

I am pleased.

With so many years of experience going online to pre order and being let down, messed about and left frustrated with the system this year I went into the o2 store that opened at 8.01. By 8.10 my order was in and I collect it Friday 3rd Nov, not only that I get a goody bag off o2 when I collect and they do all the back up and restore in store for me so no messing about for me lol 😂 

I am currently on O2 refresh with the iPhone 7 Plus 128gb after 12 months allowed an upgrade.

I chose the 64gb iPhone X in space grey as looking at my phone I have only used 41.6gb. The package was £129 upfront, 20gig, unlimited everything else. Paid £50 deposit which comes off my balance of £129 and £74 a month thereafter with an additional 10gig on top as an O2 reward. I was extremely happy with the service of the store so much better than the crappy online experiences I have suffered in the past, these guys were friendly and very very helpful. 

O2 store Dudley Street Wolverhampton 😁😃

Hi I currently have an iPhone pay monthly, I also have an NHS discount.  I want to upgrade to the iPhone X can I still use the NHS discount?  Ive just been told No, is this correct?  Anyone know why?  Thanks

No discount on new iPhone for a while until stocks become more stable.
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.
