    iPhone 7 Plus - Carphone Warehouse still have no stock?

    iPhone 7 Plus - Carphone Warehouse still have no stock? 5th Oct 16 at 8:18 PM
    So I know there's been a worldwide stock issue with the iPhone 7 Plus. But I pre-ordered a normal black, 128GB model from the Carphone Warehouse on the 9th September. I paid £350 upfront for a £40 a month contract to be connected with O2.

    The lady informed me that there was this delay and I should have it by October 7th. She told me in advance so I was fine with this, but I was expecting to have it just before. I know it's not the 7th yet, but I spoke to an online agent this morning who informed me that this delay has moved to October 21st now. Well I was disappointed in this, so I visited a store this afternoon where I was told by the man there's still a delay, and I asked for a refund and was going to go elsewhere but another man in the shop said that the pre-orders were being delivered by now, so he offered I wait until Saturday and if not, then I'll get a pay as you go sim card topped up, for free as my current contract ends with EE on Sunday, or he'll sort the refund out.

    Now my question is regarding the delay, is there still a delay? Or are the carphone warehouse just fobbing me off, and could I just cancel this order, walk into a phone shop and come straight out with an iPhone 7 Plus?

    I brought brand new 6s a week before iPhone 7 launched.
    Only because my old one completely died.


    Have you tried Argos ?

    A bit of advice for those that think Argos (and other retailers) is locking the mePhones they sell as sim free and it's not the mePhones which are doing it themselves: Don't get a mePhone ROFL.

    You really are showing some ignorance, the activation lock is a completely separate feature to the network lock.

    If you enable the activation lock it will require you to enter your Apple ID details even to use another sim card from the same network.

    Also, what it the ridiculous childishness of "mePhone" all about? You're trying to argue a point about the phone and don't even know what it's called?

    In answer to your last post, I'm actually trying to avoid accessing this thread because I can't take it seriously: I find it so funny that certain people just do not understand that the automatic locking is a feature of all mePhones, at least those which have been upgraded to the newer iOS versions, and are not the underhand actions of certain retailers who are selling sim-free mePhones under false pretences.

    I've had a mePhone for a long time. Lately I considered upgraded to the mePhone 7 but went the other way to the 6s in 5s clothing mePhone SE. A good decision I think. So I know what it's called: It's called a mePhone
