    Its called supply and demand.



    Do you know when they'll get more in stock?

    should only be a few weeks at most.

    idadvise u to get it direct from apple store uk online, i ordered mine on last tuesday, a white 16gb and the expected delivery was today. but i recieved it last friday so 3 days after i ordered it.

    o2 direct out of stock, no ETA.

    stores apparently have stock left if you can find it.

    +1 I tried explaining this to someone on another thread....

    Apple's strategy seems to be to limit the supply of the product and drip feed the demand volume......they also limit the sources to which they supply that product to.....this not only maintains the prestigeness of the product but also helps to stabilise the selling price until they deem it appropriately to change.....Ever since they released the iphone and touch...how many times have you ever seen these 2 products in a significant cost reduced sale?.....

    or even seen them available in conjunction with significant amounts of cashback offers?......personally I havent....most I have ever seen is the 4% quidco cashback from the apple site....but I dont even know if that pplies to the iphone...

    In a nutshell, unless some serious competitor or 2 release a product that will have some influencing effect on Apples sale of the iphone or itouch ..then you will prob have to pay the market price for it.

    oh look..... a helpful mod! *presses print creen* :lol:

    Not anymore.

    They stopped o2 open on the iPhone 3G S mate.

    30% off is ONLY for contracts too.

    You cannot get any discount on the 3G S.

    Whether o2 staff or someone with an o2 code.

    Erm Yes you can buddy !!

    Erm Yes you can buddy !!


    People who already ahve open (like us) can..

    They stopped open about a month after launch.. if that.

    Because the 3G S is a business phone.

    I got someone discount on it about a week ago

    [B]UPDATE: O2 have removed the O2 Open deal from the 3GS. Very poor. You can still use it for the 8GB iPhone 3G though. The exclusion may very well be temporary based on stock shortages (according to ]this forum post). The 3GS may be available under O2 Open again as of 19th July. I’ll let you know.[LEFT][COLOR=#000000]

    I tried to get my sister a 3G S with it, they were having none of it.

    about 6 different stores, eventually rang them up (o2 open line) and they said it's excluded and wasn't reactivated after a meeting on the 19/07.

    I doubt it'll be applied to their bill mate, call the o2 open line codes will be cancelled on any new 3G S contracts after july 19th.

    Well I did - seen it with my own eyes

    Yeah but ring the o2 open line to make sure it's been activated. Wouldn't suprise me if they say no.

    It's an 0800 number.

    I'm shocked the store said you could do it too.

    If it was upgraded line then maybe providing o2 open was still on it.

    I guarentee it wont be allowed on a new line.
