Will VF stores have any phones available for walk up customers on launch day or are they all allocated to pre-orders?

Thanks

Do you mean to purchase at retail no contract?

Hi John, no I mean to get a phone with a contract. Looking at the website I see a number of models and sizes are now "sold out" for pre-order. Does this mean this is also the case if one were to walk into a retail store on Friday or has some stock been kept specifically for walk in customers?

interesting, does that mean if pre-orders are being taken that there is stock going to be available?

It's not difficult to split stock into Pre-orders and retail shop stock

Sorry didn't post my thoughts!

What I meant to say is that if Vodafone has "pre-sold-out" of some models, that would mean that the presale ones already ordered should be supplied on release rather than being back ordered to Oct or Nov.

I understand that there will be items for stores on release date, much the same as presale tickets to a concert aren't the only tickets sold.

I'm interested as well.  Probably not for a midnight opening, but might line up an hour early outside a store with a 9am opening.

Unfortunately not all stores will get iPhone 6 in store on launch day. The stores that have them in stock is probably allocated only 10 units from past experience in vodafone iPhone releases
