Is Pre-Ordering a Mobile Phone the best?

I've had a pre order for the Huawei Mate 10 Pro and the Optus website for it said delivery from today, 4th December.

I rang to confirm my order will be delivered today and was told it was being dispatched tomorrow and delivered in 3 business days. I was obviously disappointed as I felt I could have attended the Sydney CBD Optus store and got one.

Now I have to wait until Friday at the most!

 

Why then should I pre order? Could I have pre-ordered instore the done a pickup today?

Re: Is Pre-Ordering a Mobile Phone the best?

Hi @Voltron, sorry for the late reply. As the pre-order confirm delivery starts from 4th Dec not on 4th Dec as it depends on availability of stock. Pre-order is based on first in first out scenario. So if you Pre-order early then you will be ahead in the queue and depending on how many people are before you and stock availability the handset will be dispatched accordingly. It works the same if you had done a Pre-order at the store. Kartik
