Official standing in line for the Verizon IPhone 4 thread! (Post pics!)
I was wondering if anybody had any pictures of lines all ready or preparation of people getting to Verizon and Apple stores. I was wanting to see this even though I received my IPhone on the 3rd and have been enjoying in every since. To all those getting up early or who are all ready there good luck.

In what the Gods must be rolling around in the stars laughing over, I'll be waiting in line for an iPhone tomorrow morning starting around 4:00 I'm sure. Again. And it's not even going to be MY phone!!!!! Got an iPhone 3G back in 2008 then switched back to VZW to get on family plan in 2009 (free) so I'm waiting in line to buy my wife an iPhone for Valentines (yeah, I know - I'm friggin' wonderful) and then I have to wait 6 months to be upgrade eligible. Tried to do it online 2/3 but due to family plan BS online, couldn't make it happen. Grrrrrrr!

I work for a non-financial business, but our offices happen to be on Wall Street in NYC, with a Verizon store in our building. When I left tonight at 7:30 p.m, the store was closed, with staff inside, and metal barricades and ropes set up outside. No one in line yet....probably too cold. If there is some good activity tomorrow, I will try to post pics, from my received-on-Monday-from-pre-order iphone.

This was at 7pm tonight...
hey guys...got my phone on monday so went by the Verizon here in Burbank CA and this is the line they have prepared for the launch. I was getting a case and talked to the verizon worker there. He is getting there at 4:30am and working 12 hours. They are requiring workers to be there for a mass demand he said.
Check out the video of the line. Sorry for the bumpiness...getting used to taking vids on my iPhone 4.

Hey all. I am currently at verizon in my car cold. No one is here. No line. One car with someone in it and another empty car.... Can't believe I did this. But I couldn't sleep so it's not like I'm really going crazy. I can't die from sitting in car for next 4 hours right? I'm bundled up and am going to turn on heat every little bit....updates soon. Respond and keep me busy. Heat just went on..

Staff just got in. More cars arrived no one waiting outside store. A customer got out of his car to gve staff donuts he got them. That was nice. Looks like full staff. Drove around and ot food. Killed a solid hour. Once a line starts I'm getting online. Hopefully they won't give me any problems getting the two phones since I'm account manager. When I called verizonall of them said it won't be.

Staff meeting in place. They are being spoken too. I see a box. More cars arriving slowly. No lines out side yet. I wonder what they are talking about. Maybe how lines will work. No idea.

Here are some of my updates from twitter (@daveizzle):
5:08am: Inside the mall! 2 lines: 1 for the Verizon Store & 1 for the Apple Store. I am literally 1st in the Apple Store line!!
5:19am: Talking to the cops here and they said they were told to expect about a thousand people here today!
5:27am: So far it's still just me in the Apple Store line. 4 people are over in the line for the Verizon Wireless store.
5:31am: At the AT&T launch last June of the iPhone 4 when I was here at 5am, there were at least 200 people - at 5am. I ended up waiting 8 hours.
5:35am: I know this ain't no iPhone 5 but I expected more than 5 people here 1.5 hours prior to opening given the "record breaking VZW preorders"
5:39am: We'll see what this looks like at 7am but I'm thinking there may not be such a rush of people switching to VZW from AT&T as was hyped.
5:40am: Update: I have company at last here in Apple's line - 1 dude who came prepared with a chair & stuff. Lol
5:41am: The cops keep joking with each other about the lack of people here - there are literally more cops here than buyers!
