For the past two iPhone launches, Optus has led the charge, both with plan pricing and announcements. Yet here we are, about a month from launch, and they’re the only major Telco without a pre-registration page for the new iPhone. What gives?
That’s not to say they won’t have the iPhone 4 – visiting www.optus.com.au/iphone4 gives a 403 Forbidden error with a URL including “…/HomeRedesign/offers/iphonepreregistration”which kind of sounds like they’re going to be redesigning their whole site alongside offering pre-registration for the new Apple handset.
We’ve contacted Optus to see what the story is but haven’t heard back yet. We’ll let you know when we find out more.
UPDATE: Optus have responded with a completely useless comment:
Austin R. Bryan, Optus Consumer Marketing Director said:
“We look forward to providing lots of information to new and existing Optus customers on the June 8 announcement in the near future”
I guess that means they’ll be selling it, I guess…
