We expect there will be many questions ranging from student discount, to unlocking, to yearly upgrades and everything in-between. See our extensive Q&A section immediately under this post, and let us know if there's anything missing you think we should mention there.
So I arrived at the store and they asked if I had a text with a four-digit pin. I said no. They told me they can't do anything without it. I said can you check and see if it's even in store? A moment later a girl arrives holding it in her hand. Guy checks the computer - some staff memeber didnt send the texts out!
Ten minutes later I'm leaving with my new phone! First impression: OMG the screen! I always thought the iPhone 7+ screen was good (and I came to thast from a Samsung QHD screen) but man, this screen is just another level. Now the tedious process of updating to 10.1 and then restore.... yaaawn
Ive been quie lucky and its been fairly straight forward.
Confirmation at 08:44 on 27th.
Kept checking my order but nothing, then late last night the tracking number appeared and a despatched date of the 2nd, so i was a little hopeful.
Hadnt heard from o2 about the store delievery so decided to pop in as was passing.
Went in at 12, was told it hadnt arrived but was 'expected' and I should get a text to say it was in store.
Thanked them and walked off, got about 300m up the high street and blow me, the text came in.
Walked back and was all sorted.
I know there should be far more information given, but must be difficult with thousands of orders and worried customers.
I hope no one has to wait too long and everything works out.
Enjoy the phones people.
