    IMPORTANT
    I have some inside info about the 02 shop in Grimsby.
    They mentioned to me that the shop was closing in 2 weeks until the 11th of july.
    I asked why and they said it was a "store revamp"
    I personally think that this is because of the new iPhone display they are going to be setting up.
    My 02 store has a huge wooden "iPhone 3G" stand with about 8 iPhones on it.
    I think they are revamping that ready for the new iPhone!!!!!!


    what you think?

    could just be a store revamp? they might be moving the tills.

    And has there ever been a time when an O2 or Carphone Warehouse has closed in the UK because of an iPhone release?

    It could well be that... but i do remember the store closing while setting up the iPhone 3G display.
    It was closed for about a week

    Maybe im just hoping on a new iPhone but it seems suspicious that they have to close the store right after the WWDC event for a "revamp"

    O2 would not close for a couple of weeks just for an iPhone display which could be put up overnight

    the one on regent street closed last year, i was on my way to work experience and walked past it every day. They re-did the whole shop. Wooden tables were installed, redecorated the whole place.

    Although this was for the release in July, not for the WWDC in June.
