I never leave the Apple Store.
Whenever I get around to it... I got presale
When they get White iPhones in stock
I am not getting an iPhone 4... NEVER
What time will you arrive at the Apple Store on launch day?
I was thinking about what time us that may have missed out on presale should arrive at the Apple Store in order to get a phone. I am planning on getting there at five. This will be my first launch day experience. What time are you getting there?

My best advice: Think of the earliest time you imagine a crazy person would get up so they can drop $300 on a phone. Then go an hour earlier than that. Bring a camp chair or something to sit on because you'll be standing outside for hours before the store even opens. Hopefully the people in the Apple store are nice enough to notify everyone in line where the "cutoff" is so that you only spend 5 hours in line until you go home instead of spending 8 hours in line just to be told they're sold out.
I went through this hell on the 3G launch and had to do it for 3 days in a row before I could get one. This time around, I pre-ordered and refuse to stand in a long line. I DO live in Las Vegas...too hot for lines

I don't usually go to bed until 3 am anyways so staying up a couple hours later shouldn't be too difficult. I just want to be at least in the first 10 people bc I seriously don't wanna deal with the drama. Haha. Just gimme my new toy!! :-D

I live in Massachusetts with a 6.25% sales tax but live 12 miles from New Hampshire with a 0% sales tax so that's where I'll be heading. I pre-ordered mine and plan on meeting a co-worker how also reserved on at the same store around 7:00am. If this is anything like the iPad launch day on which I got there 15 minutes after it opened I had to wait just over an hour. The people who got there before and up to 7:00 were in and out in less than thirty minutes.
Either way at least I'll have company and it's in a mall so it will be climate controlled. Good luck to everyone on launch day.

For the launch of the 3G, I arrived at my local mall a little before 3am and there were already 2 people in line. By 6am the line was getting pretty long. The mall opened it's doors at 8am and Apple opened at 9am. This year's iPhone launch is gonna be huge. Oh, and where's the option for 2am?

Because of the high humidity in this region, even the winters seem colder than what they are. If you remember the old TV show MASH, it's much like that. Dreadfully hot in the summer, and crazy cold in the winter. There is no happy medium.
