I am so upset with Optus right now. I order the iPad Pro 3 on the 24 Nov website was showing that product was available and the sales guy told me that delivery was going to take 3 to 5 days. On Friday 30 I got in touch with Optus because I did hear anything from them and when I was tracking the system was showing status submitted. The customer service told me that the iPads were going to reach the warehouse that afternoon and that the next day was going to be dispatch. I check on Monday the tracking it was showing the same and yesterday 7 Dec I got in touch again and the customer service person told me that the iPads are back order, I told him that I had a copy of my transcript were the other guy was saying that they were going to be dispatch the 1 Dec. Looks like Optus don’t care about giving customer false information. Below is the transcript.

Don't speak too soon SnakePlisscan, she still hasn't got it.
I am in the same boat but i ordered an S8+ on 11th November and still havn't got it. I don't even have an expected date either.
Some people might be buying things for their kids christmas presents and ordering it 2 months in advance you would think a billion dollar company would be able to deliver on their promises. Sorry kids Santa didn't come this year.
Carolina, there are some mods on this forum who might be able to get some true information from the warehouse. They will be back on Monday. Good luck.
Sorry but an Apple product has issues like this, Aalso the S8+ is in high demand, it's both your fault for not buying from a bricks and mortar store, you know, where real stock exists?
Don't go blaming an online company for your laziness...
There's a few threads on the same topic, we might need to consolidate all of these to alleviate any confusion.
We did run out of stock quite early on. I'm afraid there was a slight delay in updating current stock levels online.
The iPad Pro 3 is still on backorder. When it comes to Apple stock, we'll usually quote a time-frame of 3-5 weeks.
Unfortunately, we're not given a set-in stone date by Apple.
If there are any other questions, please shout out.
the reason why i decided to complaint about this is why lie to your customers? if you know that you have no stock why tell the customer that the product was going to leave the warehouse the next day. You can't treat your customers like that, Optus is a big dissapointment in this area.
I completely agree with you. At no stage should we ever intentionally deceive customers.
I can't really say that they've lied to you. There could be a knowledge gap, they may have been getting their information from an outdated stock report - it's really difficult to tell without investigating further.
There's no incentive for this team to lie in order to make a sale.
