So what time is everyone queuing up on friday to get the new iPhone 3g s?

Im getting mine form o2 as i wasnt able to pre order due to me not having my PAC code ready. It going to take me 40mins to get to the shop so i should get there at around 8am (the shop opens at 9am) I am really unsure though at what time would be the best i was thinking at like going at 7 but i dont want to be the numpty standing outside there by myself when no one gets there till 8.30!

what time are you going to be queuing?

Have you already had a credit check mum2b?

Im gonna stand outside offering everyone in the queue £150 for there iphone 3g as thats all they will be worth now,

Doubt there will be many people in the queue upgrading a 3g. No one pays £80 a month for a contract.

Can non geeks join in this thread? :whistling:

Yeah you will, will just be easier if you get it done before though because they can 'suspend the check' til friday then just pull it up on friday.

Just go into store and tell them you want the 3GS and want to see if you'll pass the credit check then ask them to suspend it so it doesn't og on your credit record.

Fair enough. I have to pay £100 deposit because i have no credit history.

We've noticed.

I had a look through the thread history too. Made for some fun reading, actually. It's kind-of like a little girliegeek phone diary. I know it's you're 10th or 11th iPhone thread, but I don't mind. I just hope that the one after the one about "OMG I GOT ONE!!!!" and after the one about the coolest games for it isn't followed up by one more about you not checking your pockets before putting your clothes in the wash again :thumbsup:

Missed that one. My favourite combo of threads were about computer stuff, though. The first one asked "How do I build a PC?" or words to that effect. I was impressed by that one. I guess it's just my geekishnes and my frustation with how useless and computer illiterate most of the girls I know are, but I think it's magic when a lass shows that sort of eagerness to get their hands dirty with geekthings.

I say combo of threads, because you later followed it up with one about "Can I connect a monitor to a PC?". Bless.

getting it delivered but i forgot im going to dublin! aarrgghhhhhhhhhhhh

Yup,

£800 or more for a phone with the specs of a 3 year old mobile phone.

The Nokia N80 had a 3MP camera. Now the 3GS has one. Bit pointless really.

Had it been a 5MP however, I may have been more inclined to get one though.

iPod touch + Nokia N79 seems the best bet to me at the moment.

mega pixels mean feck all. just look at that 8 megapixel samsung that was dire. Its about lens quality. Anything 3meg and above could be either very crap, or very good

are people queing up because they think it is going to sell out? or just so they can get it as soon as they can??

Well just pop down to my local O2 and ask about this phone, They mentioned to me that you can get it on Pay as you go for around £449 (can't remember exactly how much but over £400) and they give you free internet for a year.

I thought that it was going to be only available for contract but it looks like that is not the case. Just thought to let you know mum2b in case your credit check does not work you could always get it for pay as you go.

Too expensive in my opinion but some people might still want it.

Was always to be on PAYG

3G were on contract and PAYG.

It's £440ish for the 16GB
and £538ish for the 32GB.

it ends up costing more if you get payg and simplity though
