Vodafone sees strong iPhone launch day sales Vodafone is claiming strong launch day iPhone sales today, with over 50,000 pre-ordered.
In a direct jab at rival O2's admitted network problems, Vodafone says that the expected data use surge will be handled smoothly, even with high sales of the device.

"It's an outstanding phone and our network has been built for smartphones. We already carry vast volumes of data, so we've got the capacity to handle the iPhone demand,"
says the company.

The iPhone is now available on three carriers in the region, Vodafone, Orange and O2, but Voda says the refuse to start a price war, instead keeping the prices similar to that of rivals.

"People thought there would be a price war [when we announced we'd sell the iPhone] but it's not a price war, it's about the quality of experience,"
the spokesman concluded.
