So people ordering the sg 256b from today will only wait two weeks but others who ordered on the pre order date have to wait significantly more. Doesn’t make any sense

@NathanKenneford  It does make sense that preorders are still going through as they all went out of stock within 2hrs or less. Then they had to wait for more stock from Apple.

It doesn’t mean that every single person that orders from now should wait for 6 weeks as it was the initial stock that was provided from Apple that was low.

 

O2 are catching up with the high demand now so eventually those that order will get theirs next day. 

A phone won’t stay out of stock with such long delivery dates forever-just while it’s in demand.

@NathanKenneford I would think your estimate will be from your order date? 

when did you order?

@Anonymous  I’m guessing production and demand.

im ok to wait it out not as I’ve got the same phone but at 64GB so I already know what the phone is like. No more itching from me.

Has anyone ordered Sg 256gb on 27/11 got an update on their order? Seems like delivery times have come down to 2 weeks for the SG.

Nothing at all for me as yet, sadly...

 

@Mines a 256 Space Grey pre-order confirmed 27th Oct @ 9:32am - there is a guy on here (forget his name) who received his 256SG pre-order last Friday, his confirmed time of order on 27th was 9:30am.

 

thumbsdown
