UK iPhone 4 stock now 'almost non-existent'

updated 03:40 pm EDT, Wed June 30, 2010

O2 holds as only carrier with in-store units

The iPhone 4 is currently in extremely scarce supply in the UK, the Telegraph reports. Out of several carriers, only O2 is said to have any units still in retail shops. None of the companies are selling units online, though Vodafone has set up a back-order process through which people can have phones delivered as soon as new ones come in. A recent resupply shipment was entirely consumed by back-order customers, a Vodafone spokesman notes.

Supermarket chain Tesco says it's not sure when it will receive more stock, and 3 UK is only continuing to offer micro SIMs, having not yet launched the phone itself. Restrictions for buying an O2 iPhone are tough; people must already be a customer of the company, and stores are operating on a first-come-first-served policy, taking no reservations.
