There is *NOT* a "guaranteed" iphone for you Reserved in the Apple store.

For those of you (like me) that pre ordered to collect in store, did you notice the feint grey text hidden under the "Your iPhone is reserved for you" text?

Very sneaky, I had to scroll down to even see it: :thumbsdow

If you can't read it from that image, here's what it says:

Pre-authorization does not guarantee iPhone availability at an Apple Retail Store. iPhone is sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Your reservation is valid for pick-up only at the Apple Retail Store that you selected.

If you do not collect your selected item on the specified date, your reservation will be cancelled and the item will be returned to stock.

All sales are subject to the Apple Retail Store Purchase Policies.

Apple reserves the right to refuse, limit or cancel a reservation if Apple determines that a customer has provided misleading or fraudulent information and/or abused or disrupted the reservation system..

Apple Retail UK Limited, 100 New Bridge Street, London, EC4V 6JA, United Kingdom.

Been covered a few times in the threads. I phoned my Apple store just after 10am and they confirmed if reserved there would be one there. Think its a legal clause incase major issues occur.

Sounds a bit like an a**e covering clause, in case the delivery doesn't arrive on the day, and they have 500 people demanding the phone the were 'guaranteed' to have.

Either way, you could still get there and have no Iphone waiting for you and there wouldn't be a damn thing you could do about it. :thumbsdow

Saw the thread title and panicked, then read it and I now feel better.
I called them earlier about that and they said it was basiclly just to cover themselves but everyone that reserved one should be ok.

I am still going down to the store early ish just to be on the safe side.

Man I'm pooping bricks now :rotfl:

Pre ordered a 32gb sim free one from the Belfast Store. It's a 6-8 hour round trip from where I live in Ireland.

Last thing I want is to get there and they have given away my pre order :thumbsdow

And its people like him that i can see turning up with money to buy one and getting one. Will Apple turn people away who have money and tell the pre-orders that theirs hasnt arrived ?
Id rather tell my staff to sell rather than hope the people who have reserved come in.
If they do keep them, then there may be another rush on the 25th when loads arent collected after people pre-order online for delivery or get from a network locked to them.

Thank God ive paid for mine, now THATS a contract.

Seeing as they will sell them the next day anyway, they won't risk the adverse publicity. Plus, for us who have phoned it seems a common answer from the shops that the reservations will be there. I cancelled my online order because no one available at home or work on that day to get from postman.

To be honest, i can't see them totally selling out, two many Network Providers will have them and when the PAYG Network locked phone get a price release, can see them being £50 cheeper. Im keeping my options open after all, £500 / £600 is alot of money, not something im going to rush into, if my reserve goes then oh well will get one sooner or later :thumbsup:

Any reason for not ordering on line for home delivery and saving all that travel??

Same here, not totally convinced myself yet due to price so see how it goes no cash outlay until I'm sure this way.
