Update: O2 to Start Selling iPhone 3G S at 9:02am? Preparing for Sell Out?
Very brand-conscious start time aside, looks like UK customers on O2 now know what time the queue ends and the buying begins...
UPDATE: Sounds like the second poster, below, might be there just in case a store sells out and wants to inform customers. Thanks to everyone in the comments for logic-ing this out!
Posterized version after the break!

And Darren, instead of whining yourself, why don't you take a look at what's actually going on? If you knew anything about the situation you'd know that they can't have sold out yet as release isn't until tomorrow.
The manager said interest was miniscule compared to the last release 'stampede'.
Perhaps you would care to comment on not offering upgrades to your customers. (Upgraded 12 months ago and upped spend to £45 monthly).. My wife would like my 3g on pay as you go - shes currently with 3 spending £30 a month but you wont be gaining her in the near future without a similar upgrade path to last year. I will probably cut back to £35 monthly price as well...
........................... Why 9:02 Am??
.... OHHHHHH wait.. i get it... O2!!! get it guys!! get it! Terd Ferguson, It's funny
Maybe this is a poster that O2 made for their stores in the chance of the 3GS selling out AFTER it launches? If anything, they're just thinking ahead. :P
how can it be sold out whem O2 and apple store in the UK does not take preorders!!!!
get your news right mate!!!!
My Bad! I thought it was a pre order. Called today to confirm that they are gonna have enough stock , and the guy said there is plenty(black and white), but I have to pick it up before 1pm.
Maybe you'd like to explain why you think you can break your contract after 12 months and still get an upgrade?
Not going to break my contract... happy to extend... with a 12 monthly model cycle there should be an upgrade path like last year.. By not doing so O2 are missing out on an additional customer in my family... their loss I guess and Ill wait till december at least... but would probably then not change phone until June when the next model will probably be out..
