Just wondering if anyone knew the answer to this.

If I get the iPhone from and O2 store on Friday, will they ask me to sign a contract or is it going to be an activate at home thing.

Just curious really, becuase if I say in store that I want the £75 per month contract and get the phone free and if it's activate at home, whats stopping me from choosing the £35 package.

You will need to sign a contract. They will not let you out of the store without it with the iPhone in hand!!!!

Nice try though x

isnt there a way that if you dont sign the contract, you can hack the iphone or something to activate it?

im sure i saw a thread about it on here

Let me see.....

I am working for o2 and need to get as many contract sales as possible to hit my target when this nice young man comes in and asks for the brand new iPhone. So I just hand it over and say "activate it when you get home mate", and let him walk on out...........

THIS IS JUST NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!! LOL

lol no i know it sounds stupid

BUT

unless i have dreamt it im sure someone said you dont have to sign the contract, so you take it home and get someone to do a magic spell and it works

I think that arrow in your head has caused you memory problems deadduck_145?????

Would have been a mad rush to the o2 shops on Friday if they just gave em out willy nilly eg? (does willy count as a rude word and result in a suspension? Oh, have said it twice now!)

Sorry for hijacking the thread but I have a q for bankofmumndad as he/she works for o2. Hope thats okay.

Im with o2 and my usual upgrade isnt due until next year, but i understand that I can upgrade and have the new iphone 3g as long as I get the new tariff etc. Currently i have a £10 discount on line rental everymonth as I have been with o2 for 4 years.

Do you know if I can use my discount on the new iphone tarrif?
Also I went to call o2 re the iphone and was told there are sold out! The website said the same as well :x

To clear up, as I have had some PM's.......

I do not work for o2, just used an example....... tounge in cheek, you know?

Sorry, was just trying to make the point by example.

loooll thanks for clearing that up;-)

damn still no iphone 3G in stock though :x

mine will be here tomorrow as i had mine shiped from italy for 449 euro as italy has vodafone for there iphone exclusive and they are selling it as payg on day one so they are easy to get hold of on ebay.it with express shipping, all i got to do know is hope that they find a way to crack it quickly and change the language :thumbsup:

how did you get it shipped from italy?

Airmail possibly?

From what I understand it also has a faster processor and GPS?
What happened before with Apple and AT&T (the american version) and then o2 (UK) was that you bought the phone for whatever££, then when you took it home you activated your contract through ITunes. However you could jailbreak it and unlock it after several months (after release) with some software not needing to sign up to a contract.
Now apple and the various phone companies have realised this and make you sign up for a contract before you get your grubby hands on an actual phone. Meaning you have to tie yourself in to getting very little minutes and paying alot of money! I got my IPhone (1st gen) for £180 referbished from the states and unlocked it and am currently using it on my sim only vodafone contract
o2 will be releasing the PAYG version sometime but seeing as they make a fortune off contracts their trying to sell as many of them as possible.
Currently there is no unlocking method for the 3G Iphone but its supposed to be coming soon. However some countries within europe have different laws on how phones should be sold, unlocked or locked. For example France states that the handset must be unlocked after 6months of usage for free :whistling: I honestly dont know what the best method is to get an IPhone 3G without contract currently but im sure there are some people on IPhone forums that could you :thumbsup:
