Bad news for our UK readers, as reseller Phones4U has confirmed today that it is canceling all iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus preorders. The company is entering administration, which allows the company to address its creditors as it attempts to resolve its financial problems.
Phones4U was forced to make this decision after UK mobile phone operators Vodafone and EE failed to renew their contracts with the retailer.
The company has shut down both its online and retail store operations as part of the administration process. Phones4U is not accepting any further preorders, and is canceling any orders that have not already been shipped. That includes the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus preorders. All payments for cancelled orders will be refunded to customers.
Customers who were affected by Phones4U’s announcement can still preorder an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus from other retailers, however they will, of course, go to the back of the line, and will face longer delivery times, as preorders for the new Apple handsets set a record pace last Friday, September 12.
