It really looks as though very few people want the 'small' version of the phone, if VF's site graphics for delivery queues are to be believed.

 

Almost any capacity and colour (except Jet Black I think) is available with almost no queue shown. Every Plus model has at least 50% queue shown.

I have found the whole queue thing really annoying. It's not like it indicates any numbers, it just says there is a queue and how long it is. But if there is no idea of if that means 10 people or 50 or 100 then what's the point? Especially when we have no idea where we fit in it. And the queue was at about 75%.

 

When I ordered mine it was on the 12th so not the first day. On the Thursday of that week it showed that there was a queue but no idea what to even take from that. Then I got an email on the day after launch saying sorry we couldn't get it to you...blah, blah, blah. Then nothing until the Wednesday of the next week when I checked my order number and it said it had shipped. So I had no email from Vodafone saying it was being processed and then nothing saying it had been sent and no tracking number. It was all a bit of a shambles.

Inserting my order number into the Vodafone websites main page shows me that my order is "Pending.. we are still working on your order." 

 

I have trouble with contacting vodafone and their live chat is never answered. Does pending mean they are simply waiting to send the phone to your address or does it mean they are still doing approval checks in regards to credit? I ordered the iPhone 7+ 256GB Black.

 

 

 

Thank You

My wife's 7 Plus Jet Black was delivered today. Ordered within 30 minutes of order opening.

Yes it was.

 

I set it up for her last night so had a brief play.

 

The new button is odd. Sort of feels like you broke the phone because you can feel it on both sides of the case. I guess you'd get used to it.

 

Screen was not obviously different from my iPhone 6 Plus and neither was speed in terms of day to day things perhaps a little smoother and snappier opening apps but not "OMG How fast is that - I must call the Guinness Book Of World Records at once!!": I'm sure it's much faster when playing games etc.

 

Camera was better, but still miles away (Light Units in fact!) from any of my actual cameras. Cellphone camera is little more than a convenience thing for me, really and I'd not complain if they removed it altogether to be honest. Almost all smartphone cameras are Christmas cracker novelties - the sensors are so small that they will never be fabulous. If Sony were to put the sensor out of the RX1r in a phone, now THAT would be a phone camera worth carrying! Probably easier just to put a 4G module in an RX1r though!

 

Shiny black was nice, feel was solid and seemed more so than my 6 Plus. Differences in thickness pretty hard to distinguish even without the headphone jack..!

 

Now the Note 7 has gone the way of the Dodo, I'm not even sure I will get rid of my 6 Plus until the 8 is released.

Did you get tracking details sent before it arrived?

I am actually really annoyed now that someone who ordered after me, the exact model has their phone.

Interesting that all Vodafone reps have stayed clear of this thread...

No. Indeed, she had an email last Friday saying "Please call us we need to query something on your order"

 

 

 

She tried ringing them Saturday only to discover they can't be bothered to work weekends.

 

When she rang them Monday they had no idea why she had been sent the email...!

 

 

 

Phone randomly turned up yesterday.

For those who are still waiting and ordered on 9/9 it may pay to call up and chase your order.

 

I had heard from @Geektastic and some users on Vodafone's forums that people who had ordered their phones up to a week after the pre-orders started has received their iPhone 7+ 128GB Jet Black units (by far the most popular model) so I called up Vodafone on Mon this week to ask where my phone was as I knew a reliable source that ordered 30 min after the pre-orders started. I was told by that rep my phone was allocated on Friday and should be with me by the end of this week.

 

I was happy enough with this but after not hearing anything I decided to call them up yesterday to follow up. I spoke directly to someone from Online sales this time who told me my phone was allocated to me on 11th October but the order was never finalised and sent to the warehouse!

 

Long story short if you haven't seen your phone and expect it to have been dispatched ring them and keep following up otherwise it could be sitting there for 10 days!

My order has been "ships October" for a while, than changed to "ships November" for a while. Today, after a long time, it has changed to "Pending.. we are still working on your order".

 

Based on your experience, does that mean the phone is getting ready to be shipped or it's more likely to be just a random Vodafone mess up? 

 

(I'm on the phone now trying to get a status from a human being. "Expect to wait 50 to 60 minutes(!)" )

I have some bad news for you!

 

Pending simply means they are getting ready to think about sending your phone, mine was on Pending from 4th October, the phone was ready to ship on 11th October but they decided to screw the order up and it sat until I called them last week.

 

They said they would try for same day but they didn't (no same day stickers on the box) finally arrived yesterday.

 

In all honesty if you can wait on hold for long enough do chase them up and get a proper ETA from a person in the On line ordering team, don't let the rep you speak to pass the message as I did first and they were just completely wrong with what they told me.

Yep it turned up on Tuesday morning. I still have the ticket open with Vodafone to tell me what went wrong with it all from the wrong rebate being applied to sitting around for nearly 2 weeks before being shipped, I should have got mine when yours arrived.

Glad it got there in the end. My wife is quite ambivalent now she has it!
