UK MOBILE NETWORK O2 has already sold out of the Iphone 5, despite being the last operator to start taking preorders.
The Iphone 5 went on sale in the UK on Friday, with Orange, T-Mobile, Three and Vodafone all taking orders for the latest Apple Iphone. O2 was the only UK network that didn't start selling the Iphone 5, despite it selling out from the official Apple store.
Still, it looks like O2 must have opened its doors over the weekend, as a notice on its website says it's already sold out of its first batch of Iphone 5 devices.
It says, "All our pre-order has been snapped up. Check back on launch day, Friday 21st Sep."
Still, at least we finally know how much O2 will be charging for the Iphone 5. Those after a free 16GB handset will have to sign up to a 24 month £46 contract, complete with unlimited texts, unlimited minutes and 1GB of monthly data. Alternatively, a one-off payment of £99 will get a cheaper £36 contract, complete with the same monthly allowances.
The 32GB model will cost £199.99 upfront on the same £36 contract, while the top-end 64GB model will set you back £299.
From what we can see, Orange, T-Mobile, Three and Vodafone all still have stock of the Iphone 5.
O2 was unavailable for comment at the time of publication. µ
