    Re: Headlines - Apple iPhone 3G now on sale, did you get one?

    I gave up waiting and opted for an HP iPAQ 614c. With a fair wind and all the discounts, vouchers and Quidco arriving, I will have paid £150 for this, SIM free.

    I've ordered a Vodafone contract SIM with £90 Quidco cashback, so free calls for around 5 months

    I managed to pick up a 16GB white iPhone from the Apple store in London. I did order on the Monday but O2 messed up my order so canceled it.

    Apple stores have tons of stock and O2 are left with one of the worst product launches in recent years

    It's a f****** phone!

    I'll never understand people who queue up for hours to buy a consumer device.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Should get mine from CPW today! I wouldn't queue but did take advantage of my jet lag whilst in the US to order one at 2am whilst they had stock.
    Not around too often!
