Optus iPhone 5 pre-order "out of stock"

Optus iPhone 5 pre-order "out of stock"

If you want an iPhone 5 sooner rather than later, you might have to chance the queues at the shops this Friday.

 

 

Those wanting to pre-order an iPhone 5 from Optus before this Friday’s on sale date will find the phone is listed as “out of stock”.

The Optus site states there is no more stock for existing Optus customers wanting to pre-order, or for new customers.

Telstra and Virgin Mobile have also stopped taking pre-orders of the iPhone 5 for the moment. Vodafone still appears to be taking pre-orders for the phone.

While pre-ordering is meant to provide a way to “beat the queues”, as Vodafone puts it, and have a phone set aside for delivery, unless you got in early, you might not get hold of the handset for weeks. While deliveries for pre-ordered iPhones begin on Friday, delivery could take up to three weeks, depending on which provider you ordered with.

We note the Apple Store is still taking pre-orders.
