★ Optus iPhone launch details!

iphoneHandset.jpgJuly 11 is fast approaching. As a deposit holder, July 11 is all about you. We have some big news to share with you, so read carefully!

Sydney midnight store opening – Optus mobile customers with holding deposits only. Can’t wait to get your hands on your new iPhone 3G? To celebrate the launch of iPhone 3G, we will be opening our Optus World store at 280 George Street Sydney at 12.00am on July 11.

So if you’re planning to be in Sydney on July 11 and you’re an existing Optus Mobile Customer who left a holding deposit, you have a fantastic opportunity to be one of the first in Australia to get your new iPhone 3G.

Join us early on the yellow carpet as we camp out throughout the evening. With free food and the odd guest celebrity popping in, we’ll make your countdown to happiness as enjoyable as possible.

To be eligible, please bring with you:

  • A printed copy of your deposit receipt and
  • Your current Optus mobile phone service that you will be upgrading to iPhone 3G

Please remember – if you are not a current Optus Mobile customer you will not be able to be served at the midnight opening

Additional early store openings and priority queuing

Don’t worry if you can’t make it to the midnight opening. As a deposit holder you are entitled to 2 hours early store opening at participating stores. And that’s not all. You’ll also be given exclusive access to our priority queuing service all day on July 11 at participating stores. This means when you arrive at a participating store you will be placed in a priority queue for deposit holders only and will be served before all other non-deposit holders.

If you’re in Melbourne or Brisbane, we’ll be rolling out the yellow carpet prior to the 7.00am store opening at our Chadstone store in Melbourne and our Queens St store in Brisbane. So if you can make it, join us for the countdown.

Remember, stock is strictly limited. Your holding deposit does not guarantee you an iPhone 3G on July 11. We’re expecting some long queues on the day, so plan to get there early. Based on the feedback we received from our last email correspondence, we have done our best to ensure that participating stores are available in an area that suits you.
