We do the night before in line mainly just because of the atmosphere. We see some of the same people every year and they're all awesome. We stay up and talk Apple and other tech all night. It's 1 of my only nerd nights a year that Kimmy is willing to participate in because it's actually a lot of fun..

Reserved for tomorrow!
I just called the Apple Store in the Maine Mall. The Mall opens at 6:00 and the Store at 7:00. Due to the Malls layout, it's hard to know which exterior door will be unlocked first and lines are expected at both doors near the Store. It's going to be chaos!
But! She assured me that if I have a reservation, they are setting aside sufficient new iPhones for everyone so reserved. She further went and checked that I was indeed on their list (and I was)!
So, I'm asking, unless you want to be some sort of Apple masochist, why the heck would you want to put yourself through this madness--not to mention sleep deprivation? Just wait until later in the day (if you have a confirmation and the flexibility) and enjoy a more sane and peaceful introduction to your new iPhone.

Well since I was unable to pre order last week I am trying to get one tommrow as a walk in. The apple store in Norfolk, Va is in MacAurther Mall and they said the Mall will open at 6am and the store will open at 7am. This is the first time I went to an Iphone Launch. I want to get there at like 4 am but I don't know if the mall will let me park in the garagage that early. Anyone got any advise for a newbie (by the way upgrading from an iphone 3G). Think I will have a shot at getting one without a pre order tommorow?

I searched around a bit, but did not see the answer I seek and didn't want to start a new topic. Anyways, I'm trying to figure out who is the misinformed one in this case, AT&T or Apple Stores. So I was unable to pre-order due to the awesome server meltdown, so I'm attempting to walk-in. The issue is, AT&T is not offering the walk-in service until next week, so I'm wanting to try my luck at my local Apple store. My issue is I am NOT the primary on my account, my wife is. I am however an authorized user and know all of the necessary info. I called two different apple stores this morning asking if they are doing walk-ins and at what time. Then I asked if I am able to purchase the phone at my upgrade price without my wife being there, and both the different Apple Store employees said yes, as long as I am an authorized user I can upgrade But NOT add a line. They said all I will need to know is my wife's last 4 on her social and the billing zip. Then I called AT&T just to double check and they said that it was impossible for me to upgrade without my wife present at an Apple store and I can only purchase the iPhone 4 at a corporate AT&T location. So who is lying? haha I really need to know as my wife will NOT under any circumstance wait in line for MY phone!! haha

Just found out that the mall I'm going to doesn't allow lines to form outside until 15mins before they open the doors which is 6 am. This is bad. There is gonna be a bum rush to the Apple store. I'd planned to get there at 430 to get a good spot. Grrrrr....

I'm currently waiting for lines to start at the lehigh valley mall in PA. I'm at a 24 hour walmart down the street, they won't let any cars hang out at the mall. Anyone near by wanna wait together? Or anyone know a 24 hour coffee shop to chill at? Thanks and good luck all!

I'm going to stop by the Biltmore in Phoenix tomorrow morning and see what the line is like. If it's too long, I'll go to work and come back at lunch and see how it goes. The store opens at 7am and I live right across the street. Maybe the news tonight will show me how many people are already out there.

Chestnut Hill Mall in Chestnut Hill, MA -- just outside of Boston.
I've got one reserved, so don't really have any worries... However, I'm just completely in the dark as to how much of a crowd there will be. I've NEVER (and I'm serious) been to this mall and seen more than 25-50 people in there. It's really weird. Maybe the area is bad? It's all higher-end stores, for the most part, so it doesn't draw the younger crowd. But really, it's weird. I've never been to such a consistently empty mall!
So who knows, maybe I'll be in and out by 7:05? I wish!
