Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

So of the holy trifecta, it's just the iPhone that is outstanding. We have the 2.0 firmware available for download and the app store is allegedly running. Also, mobileme is going on line soon as well.

Nope, no MobileMe, no iPhone info from Orange, no chance of getting hold of one tomorrow by all accounts. I'm starting to feel completely underwhelmed by the whole experience.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

I just got an e-mail from Orange with a link to order one. Unfortunately, I cannot use it and still keep my orangeclick number. The option isn't included.

I just got the email too. Ordered one and paid online, but then instead of a payment confirmation page got one saying "Confirmation OK - capture failed."

Now I don't know whether my card has been debited or not. Anyone else?

That's par for the course, as far as the whole Orange iPhone saga is concerned.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

No. I got a page appear for a fraction of a second and then it went to the error page. On inspection, the disappearing page had a 'confirm this transaction' button on it .

Still not managed to get any further.

Edit: Tried again and got a 'thank you for your order' page. Might end up with 2 of the darned things now - ha ha!

More Edit: Yes, both went through, I have been charged twice. And Orange will cancel the other. Delivery might be as much as 3 weeks they said.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

Since we all got the link at the same time, maybe it's safe to assume that everyone who hadn't ordered yet did?
No surprise if the ensuing torrent of orders crashed the server, considering how stable it was yesterday.

Exactly the same here! Oh well...

Also, try this - go to the error page, and then click your "Back" button twice in succession, but on the second click hold it, don't release. On my machine, that freezes the SaferPay page for as long as the button is held down, and I can see that that it is a payment confirmation page, with a receipt number and so on. That looks a bit more hopeful...

I'm in the same boat, do you know if this is even possible via an Orange shop or through customer services?

Cheers

According to customer support, it has to be sorted out in an Orange shop.
I'm going to pop round the one on Löwenstrasse today after work with a print-out of the e-mail, and see if that gets me anywhere.

Im still @my office and the orange shop near oerlikon is closed after 6:30...

But I found one strange thing...that there is no prepaid plan @http://microsite.orange.ch/index_f2.php#buy_en

And there is also an option of using L permit as Identity card type...but as far as I have heard that I cant get a postpaid contract with my L permit...I need to have atleast a B/C permit...

Can anyone please tell me if I can get the postpaid plans with L permit??
I am interested in getting an optima30 or any other plan @orange/swisscom with 1GB data plan.

Thanks.
-vib.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

Im just going to go wait outside data quest around an hour before it opens tomorrow morning. Is that a good idea or not? Should I go more than an hour earlier or is an hour ok??

Thanks.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

update: "Fabio" called me back asking about why they were going to send me an iPhone all of a sudden.

I explained the shop thing and now he said I *might* get one tomorrow, but he couldn't guarantee it, and not to go to the shop as they will post one to me.

I would have thought they would have them in the post by now, but we'll see.

I didn't expect them to hunt me down like a dawg.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

Why everytime when I click buy on the buying page on Orange it doesn't work? It doesnt even load a new page it just stays on the current page and nothing happens.
