Mass/ NH area buying advice anyone?
I am looking to buy my first iPhone on Friday since I was just told that I can upgrade for a $20 charge. Because of the timing, I was not able to preorder so it looks like I am going to have to try and beat the rush to a store on Friday.
Anybody in the MA/NH area that has gone to a launch before that can offer any advice on where to go? Apple/Verizon, and which actual store would help a ton. Called vzw today and was told the same thing by 2 stores: they dont know how many they are getting and dont remember how busy it was when the 4 launched.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I live in the mass/ nh area. I did go to the store during launch last year and found that the apple store opens earlier then the cell carrier stores. All and all I've always had a better experience at the apple store as opposed to other locations that sell the iPhone. Needless to say you gonna need to wake up really early no matter where you go. Hope this helps

Deppends on your work schedule ect. Apple stores will be open much earlier, I know here in Providence it opens at like 6 or 7 am on launches so you could get there early get out and get to work. Just a thought. As for what previous poster said, your line at apple store may be longer buut they will have numerous amounts of all the varieties, so there will be numerous verizon and sprint and att phones in each size there.

worth the roll of the dice, especially if (in the case of this original poster) you happen to be in the NH/Mass area, you could go to the Mall of NH (Manchester NH) where there is a VZW store and a Best Buy in the same general location.
worth a thought

Thank you for all of the responses.
I was thinking about checking out the Mall of NH but there is also another vzw store that is right down the road and since it is not in the mall, it seems to be a lot less busy. I was told that there were not really many people there for the 4 launch. I am planning on getting there around 6:45 and if the line is too big, just leaving and ordering it online. Hopefully not many people show up, NH isn't exactly densely populated with people looking for the iPhone, I rarely ever see any of them around, but maybe more people will be looking to pick this one up.

i live in western mass and the holyoke mall is great.
theres an at&t store right down the street.
all major carriers have a store and then an apple store and a bestbuy.
i preordered mine from bestbuy and supposedly they are supposed to call to make an appointment for me to pick it up but ill be there at 745 right before they open.
p.s. both the best buy store and mobile store said they were only getting 50 each but did not specify what color/size or provider.
