Finally, finally, finally! I managed to get a good willing salesman who was eager to sell me the new iphone over the phone.
Believe me, I have been trying for a while now, I did not want to pay ridiculous amount of money to get the iphone 3g when it had come out, so went for a Nokia N73 but now I was really getting bored of the Nokia and wanted to lay my hands on the Iphone.....(i am now a full Apple convertee!)
I have tried my luck a few times in the past few weeks, by calling O2 and asking them to swap me over to a new 18 months contract, although my current contract only runs out in April; they used always refuse me, saying Iphone would be never given to me before my contract ran out or I was due an upgrade in March unless i forked out a £105 to end my contract early.
But yesterday I called them to say I want to end my contract and I am ready to buy the rest of my contract as I wanted to move over to Vodaphone as they are ready to give me an excellent deal on the new Blackberry Storm. That was it...he then said he would like to talk to his manager and came back to me with an offer I could not refuse. Brand New 16gb Apple Iphone for free on 18 months contract at 45£ per month and they would cancel my current contract as soon as I enabled my new iphone (which I should receive today)!
I am really happy and excited....just wanted to share it with you all. Hope someone else can apply the same technique to get a new iphone!
