    At Telechoice Marion, I'm being told 3 weeks.

    When I signed up, I was told this week.

    There seem to be two common themes here. Some people are being told later this week, others have been told 2 to 3 weeks.

    My fiance rang up the same store (I am a HB local too) to check on the order because she is sick of hearing me say "I want my iPhone"

    They said definitely Thursday, but I am not sure how true that is. Given demand for the black 16Gb but I hope it's true

    this might be of some help to those signing up at any optus dealer in Westfield Southland in Melbourne.

    I scored an iPhone (16gb black) from the small Strathfield booth outside Big W (near Optus World (top level)) on the 11th without having put a deposit down. The guy told me nobody with deposits had specified that store. He also said when I signed up theyd get more in this week sometime.

    I guess what im saying is if u plan to get put down on the list, dont forget about enquiring at this place. I think I was lucky enough to get one on launch day because everybody overlooked it.
    I imagine the list will be shorter also.

    I signed up through Allphones in WA and they said maybe this week, hopefully next week, but honestly, could be more. If it's not in next week I'll be a bit annoyed because I signed up and my number just ported this morning, rendering my old sim obsolete, so I had to stick my new sim in my old gsm phone, which means I'm paying for a phone I don't have and a plan that I can't utilise. I didn't think the port would happen until I had activated the sim, but that's what you get for not asking enough questions.

    I didn't have to sign up to anything. The guy in Belmont just took my name and phone number, and asked which phone I wanted and said he's contact me.

    I was among the first to do the rain check thing at Optus in Crown Street Wollongong. They said they are very confident the 16Gb will be there this Friday morning.

    i rang Allphones here in Hobart and said Optus told them that they will receive the iPhone today. So they are still waiting, and it could be tomorrow.

    I remember when i sign up for a raincheck on launch day, the iPhones were delivered 930AM on launch day here in Hobart, so all of us even those who put a deposit has to wait for the delivery. I hope i will have the phone tomorrow. :-)

    I rainchecked a 16gb black model at Allphones @ Tea Tree Plaza here in Adelaide and was told that a shipment is due on 25/7. Fingers crossed!

    I have signed a contract, and have my phone on raincheck.

    does anyone know if there is a possibility i might be able to get out of this? I think i want to go prepaid, not contract.

    You'd have to call them...seeing as the conditions of the contract..ie being sold a phone and receiving one at the time of entering into the contract weren't possible yet you were almost placed under duress to get a raincheck "if you don't get a raincheck, you could wait for months" there might be some applicability of cooling off here. Ring and ask first, if they are unhelpful, call TIO and ask...this is a pretty unique situation certainly doesn't happen normally, ie you go into buy a phone they don't have one...they would order you one and call you when it was in and then do the contract....
