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

@Anonymous In regards to you stating that I was naive to think the system would go live at 08:01 them your wrong and to put it simply I followed instructions told by 1. In store 2. This thread 3. Online chat 4. Apples own guidelines as retailer were told under no circumstances to trade any products before 08:01 GMT and that comes straight from Apple UK

Also you shouldn’t really sarcastic if you don’t know that full story... I personally was in the office at 06:30 that day, I had logged into my O2 and got prepared for my upgrade as I do each and every year however at around 07:40 it was allowing me to place an order therefor I went ahead but the system continued to tell me that the 256gb model was out of stock, now as this was BEFORE 08:01 like you kindly pointed out I assumed “maybe by being naive” that this was only because the system wasn’t meant to go live until 08:01 therefor I waited until 07:55 and hit a barrier with the payment system and had to refresh until it worked like many other people.

Now if O2 had not done what they were not meant to do i.e. go live for orders early... then there would have still been stock left before 08:01 like they were supposed to start the order system so as a direct result of o2 going against Apple and their own guidelines customers such as myself have been let down.

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

Just checked my DPD status it has now changed to:

15:45 - Leeds - We have your parcel and it's on its way to you

Yesterday and today it was showing that the parcel was on its way to Leeds!

So looks like it will arrive tomorrow

Just checked my order for the first time today (I think we clearly all know that's sarcasm joy).

 

Ordered 256 Silver at 08:07, Home delivery, had tracking details a couple days ago, Parceline (DPD), just updated from being in Leeds, "awaitng your parcel" to, "We have your parcel it's on it's way" it will be delivered tomorrow between 6am and 10pm, I would complain about that horrendous window but I'll just be happy to get the ruddy phone! yahoo Fingers crossed for an hour time slot tomorrow morning!

 

Hope everyone else receives what they're expecting tomorrow smiling

Check your dpd app or site guys. It will give you the date of delivery. My time is saying anything between 0600-2200hrs but I'm assuming that'll change to a 1 hour slot by tomorrow morning.

Just had a look as well.

 

I ordered 256 Space Grey. Confirmation at 08:20. DPD tracking showing that they have picked it up from Leeds and should be delivered at some point on 3rd. :-)

 

Still no text or email, though.

If your order is going to store there is no actual tracking

Pleased to say, after a lot of fretting and receiving absolutely nothing from o2 or DPD the last few days - my tracking info is now showing in My o2!

 

Also appearing in DPD app with expected delivery date of tomorrow!

 

Really pleased - it always works out in the end smiling

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

@Joemoore28 8.01 GMT is 9.01 BST (which we were on when pre orders went live) so by that reckoning O2 were never going to comply with Apple’s instructions
