I placed pre orders with all the providers and no one has come back to me yet, phone the I stores at 8:30this morning to find out what time it will be available on mnt or vodacom and guess what, they said its already sold out. Pathetic if you consider that it was announced yesterday that vodacom and mtn will be available later in the day. Secunda also has no stock at any of their vodacom or mtn branches. Well done apple!

Does the iStore still sell the older iPhones? I was told yesterday that they removed them from the shelves

@rassie iPhone's are bought into South Africa by the Cell Networks and not Apple's official distributor. Apple set the launch date by the cell networks are responsible for the number of phones at each store.

I've been on a waiting list since 05 October for the iPhone 5. Been told that I was 5th on the list…. *Apparently*
Today I phone the outlet and they only received "ONE" iPhone 5 today… I honestly don't understand what they are supposed to do with one phone? Does this go to the person that offers the biggest bribe? Lol. But seriously – I think its just really bad planning from the outlets. I don't mind sticking to the iPhone that I currently have, but I just wish that we as customers receive decent customer service. We are paying for it afterall… We are driving the sales!

Apple did a poor job of marketing the launche, only way you wold know if you searched the net. Then the stock shortage was poory communicated. But what makes me mad is the fact I above been on a waiting list for 4 months then when the stock arrives I get told from everyone the current stock is for new lines and not upgrades. These operators must be carful of the CPA act!

CellC Menlyn has stock, MTN and iStore has for both as well.. But none for or from Vodacom. Nothing, 30 units at launch sent to iStore for vodacom… How the farmalugiamarter?!?, Vodacom you just suck! The vodacom outets has a printed note reading "Sold out". Lies, all lies! – you received no stock! Same crappy planning as last year with 4s launch. CellC requested 1500 units, MTN 3500.. Vodacom sent 30. Well done Vodacom, again out of touch with your client base an consumers in general proving why I should abandon you and change my contract over to CellC. I will actually pay less and my receive much much more… Including the phone I wanted!
