iPhone 4 UK: Reserve a Contract iPhone for Collection on June 24

The Apple store might be down and not allowing pre-orders of the iPhone 4 in the UK, but if you head on over to the online retail store you can reserve an iPhone over there for collection. The good news with doing it this way is that you get 3 options when purchasing. You can select from PAYG, SIM Free or Contract. We just pre-ordered a contract model ready for collection in Brighton on June 24.

Unfortunately contract details are not readily available just yet, but as there is no real commitment other than logging in to the Apple website to let them know who you are, you can either just not show up, or just choose something different on the day of launch.

We suspect that when collecting and paying for your iPhone that you’ll be presented with all the network options so you can make a choice in store for what you want, and get it subsidised too.

Head on over to the online retail store now and select what model you want and then select what type of SIM you want (as in contract, PAYG etc…).

When you come into the Apple Retail Store, we’ll get you activated fast at our iPhone Activation Zone. Before you leave, we’ll get you set up to make calls, browse the web and receive personal email right on the spot.
What you need to purchase and activate iPhone:
