A friend just went down to Queen St voda store and they've sold out.
Any other reports of no stock? How many phones did Apple allocate to NZ? I imagine hundreds.......

They only had a very limited number so I would be surprised if they didn't sell out. You can still get it on their website. Are you sure that both 8GB and the white 16  GB have sold out, as they are not as popular as the 16GB black one.

Wouldn't really be a surprise - status in Wellington as of around 1pm was that there were still a few 8gb's available but all the 16gb's had gone.

One must wonder iF VFNZ have iMposed an artificial shortage - this would let them proclaim something along the lines of "NZ iPhon 3G Launch A Complete Success!", and then simply "restock" tomorrow.

Or Apple have done so? I think they did something like this in the US with the 1st model.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I don;t think it is any secret that they do that. Vodaofone will say that their plan pricing must be good, otherwise they wouldn't have sold out, however with a limited number, I would be surprised if they didn't sell out.
