Pre-Order Demand for iPhone 6 Causes Networks to Crash

The phone networks in the UK and even at Apple, are struggling under the heavy demand for the pre-orders of the new next generation iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

As of Friday, pre-orders can be taken for the newest phone by Apple, but the stores online and brick and mortar must fix the snags in the process so the consumer can reserve their smartphone.

Today the pre-orders opened for the new larger screen iPhones prior to the official launch scheduled for Friday September 19, which is the date the phones that are pre-ordered should be set for delivery.

The ordering can be done directly through Apple from nearly all the UK networks or through phone stores such as Phone 4U and Carphone Warehouse.

Most networks however have been struggling while across the U.S. even Apple was being plagued with problems.

The different networks across the UK are being overrun with customers who want to purchase the iPhone.

With many of the websites of the different networks struggling under the heavy demand, it makes it difficult to compare the different deals and contracts being offered by the different networks.

One network has its plans with the iPhone 6 starting at £26 a month for a contract of 2 years with 3G, which has you paying £249 for the iPhone in advance.

All of the plans with 4G are a minimum of £40 and include Spotify, Sky Sports or Netflix.

For a SIM-Free and unlocked iPhone without any contract the least expensive iPhone 6 is £540, with the next being £620 and up as high as £700 for the one with 128GB.

The iPhone 6 Plus which comes with a larger screen that is 5.5 inches in size starts at 16GB for £620 the increases to £700 for memory of 64GB and finally will set you back £790 for the 128GB. At an exchange rate of approximately £1.00 = $1.62 the price is $1,279 for a new 6 Plus with 128GB.
