I pre ordered an iPhone 5 at 9.15am on Friday. When I tracked it on Saturday with the orderd number I was told It was waiting dispatch when the were in stock. Now when I try and track it, it doesn't recognise my order number. According to the Vodafone website, I'm not eligable to upgrade until 2014, which is right assuming I have just been upgraded to the iPhone 5.
Just wondering what other peoples tracking says when they put in their order number (beginning WEB-000)
Also how early did you need to pre order before stocks ran out for a 21st delivery date?

If you ordered on Friday and haven't heard anything at all yet I would call and check and order is in process. It is possible some have been delayed but I think you would have had something by now.
I ordered once on th phonewon Friday at about 9am and online about 6pm and have heard about both of those with emails and texts.

Just for the record. Can anyone give a good reason why they would lock themselves into a 2 year contract with Vodafone (without LTE) for 42£ a month minimum when you can get an LTE Iphone 5 from apple and stick a nano sim from Three in it with a 12 month contract and unlimited data, all for 36£ a month???
The comparable cost: around £700 for the iphone and the sim with three and then over £1000 pounds for the vodafone deal??
I understand that the Vodafone deal is twice as long but most people dont want the same phone for two years anyway!

Ok, you kind of lost me with that last post.
Let me get this right you dont want to lock into a 24 month contract so you buy the phone from Apple which is £529 an you stick a three sim into it which is £12.90 a month. In what way does the math work out that that comes to £36 a month for 12 months? Is that what you are saying or am I missing the point.
£36 a months over 2 years works out at about £864 doing it this way but you need to have £529 cash up front to buy the iphone.
With employee advantage, if youre lucky enough to qualify, the monthly cost on Vodafone for unlimited texts and calls and 2gb of data the monthly cost is £33.60 working out at £806.40 + £49 up front = £855.40. Oh and you have a better chance of getting a signal with Vodafone

Well looks like I will be getting a delivery on Friday
Apple have just confirmed "Dispatched" and will be delivered by UPS on Friday September 21st
Take a look at the dispatch date on the pic. that has to be a mistake

Placed my ordered on 16th September roughly at 11:20am in a Vodafone store, whist the woman phoned up and sorted everything. I still haven't received a tracking number or info. This is beyond a joke.
If my phone isn't delivered by Monday I'm canceling my business account and going with a more reliable company such as Orange/EE and getting all the benefits of LTE too!
The service I have received is shocking. Vodafone need to work on customer service a lot. There is no chance I'm waiting 2-3 weeks for a PRE-ORDER (i.e. Getting it early or on release date)

Vodafone in Macclesfield did mine straight off at 0930 on the Friday.
got it tracking pin warehouse waiting for dispatch.
decided to do a store collection to save waiting sin house all day. So going straight from work to the store.
o2 however, are utterly disorganised.
Ordered 0800 saturday.
Assured that the business customers take priority and I'll have it Friday morning. Still no order tracking details and cannot check status online...
so vodafone are +1
