I went to the Manchester Arndale store to upgrade my contract on the 26th Dec, i was told that I could collect my phone on new year day. Few days later only received emails telling me how the phone went out of stock and I have to wait. Now almost three weeks gone I haven't heard anything apart from automatic email telling me vodafone is working on my order. I've three contracts with Vodafone for over 6 years now, This happened last time I upgraded to a Galaxy S, i thought Vodafone would improve but? Since I go home (Manchester) only once a week, and at the end of the month I'm probably away from UK for a while, I do wonder when I can collect my phone? I have heard from various phone companies who told me that they had Galaxy Nexus in stock, so is this a Vodafone exclusive problem or no one else have stock as well? It just seems like to me I was persuaded to upgrade my contract on the basis as Vodafone simply told me that I could collect my phone but then no?
Solved! See solution

Hi ,I`ve recently upgraded in store aswell, on order no ( VFUKMCT00626338),was not infomed of possible delays,wish I would have looked here first ! i`d probably have taken a iphone 4s instead !
This is the first time i have ever had to wait for a phone and to be honest i`m not impressed,I see alot of people here being fobbed off and thats not good, surely they must know when stock is due to arrive ???
So PLEASE vodafone be HONEST when will i get my PHONE ??????????????????????????????????????????????????

I am sorry to see that you are still without your new handset. I understand that this is frustrating as no doubt it is exciting to get an new handset.
We are dependant on the manufacturer for when we get stock and as soon as we receive these you will be emailed to let you know the phone has been dispatched.

I went to the same store today and been told theres no stock and they dont know when they getting it. I would more like to know if this is the situation of Vodafone not getting enough "vodafone exclusive firmware" version of galaxy nexus or dont have stock from samsung in general. It seems to me a lot of other vendors and networks have plenty of stock. A clarification and an estimate of availability would be good.

When you phone a large company do you think a sign lights up with your name on it and the entire company stops what they are doing just to work on a deal to keep you? of course not.

Called CS today, they couldn't get through to warehoues to check, and advised me to go and check if theres stock in store i can cancel my order and do it in store, hes quite helpful and gave me the number of the manchester store I upgraded in, rang up, they had quite a few in store apparently, explained the situation and now they holded one for me and cancelled my order, going to pick it up on tuesday hopefully everything goes fine. Guys call CS (191 and the regarding recent upgrade) to check up on your order, if they cant tell you when its coming ask them for you local stores number and ring them, apparently the stores can cancel your order (given you have your order ref) and reserve one for you to pick up. I will see on tuesday.

Colletced my phone today from the Manchester store, although involved some phoning and revisiting. But got the phone at last. Helpful staff at the store I must say
