Why no Iphone?

So time came to change my plan.

I asked for 2 new Iphone 8's 256gb (as apparently the 64gb aren't made anymore) and whilst i was on the phone i decided to upgrade my sons phone to an 8 plus.

The 8 plus came in the mail a few days later but the 8's are on back order despite online saying avail and the sales lady saying yep all phones avail.

6 days and counting, no emails, no messages nothing.

What gives?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

No phones Yet Jessica

I'm not going to bother calling or use chat as they just lie.

*Wait 24-48hrs more, had that one 3 times already.
*Yes the phone is ready the IME number is being assigned, please wait 4-5days.
*Wait till end of the month, sometimes resources are held for important people. If phones avail then ill get allocated.
*Phones cant take 2-4wks to arrive, had that twice.

Sick of waiting for phones that were apparently in stock at the time.

Re: Why no Iphone?

I am sorry about this and understand how frustrating this is becoming. We do need an order or ref # to have this investigated. At times the handsets can be delayed and stock levels are impacted, however, we do all we can to obtain more stock and as quickly as possible. 

 

If you do not have an order Ref # you will need to contact either LiveChat http://tel.st/srxvc or Mobile Sales on 13 2200.

Re: Why no Iphone?

Thanks for the order references. 

 

I have checked the order numbers using our online tracking tool at  http://tel.st/63fqs and confirm that both are still on back order.

 

 

Once stock becomes available, we’ll allocate that stock to your order based on your place in the queue and dispatch your new device from our warehouse. We’ll keep you updated via email on the progress in the queue.

 

Please don't hesitate to contact us again.
