4 Days Later and still lines
So I just went to the apple store just to look around because sometimes I do that (weird I know I love apple whatever). So back on point their are still lines here for the 4S. I was like wow that is nuts. I actually thought they were sold out but apparently not. Anyone else experiencing this in their area. I'm in Columbia Maryland.

Apple stores always seem to have lines. I think the main reason being there are so few of them compared to other stores that sell apple products. I walked into radioshack on launch day and there was 1 other person in the store getting an iphone.

Went to the Sprint today with my iPhone and my old Android to transfer my numbers. Thinking it would safe and clear because the massive weekend rush was over...HOLY HELL the Sprint stores here in NYC were packed like Rush hour trains in Tokyo...I went to 3 Sprint stores before giving up and just waiting it out the 3rd store @ Bryant Park took almost 90mins from me going to me coming out.
A lot of people picking up preorders, transferring numbers from old phones, and inquiring about the iPhone which the Sprint rep handed them a pamphlet and turned them away i guess because they were sold out.

Didn't see any lines yesterday at apple store in Louisville who had plenty. But other retailers seemed to be sold out.
And not to go off topic but Siri is marketing gold for them. That's all they were doing in the store. I'm watching people talk to the phones. The sales guy is all in to it trying to demo Siri for me though i was sort of rushing him to hurry up with the sale. This is driving a lot of sales.

I was glad I didn't need to go in, I had thought about looking to see what cases they had but that was like "hell to the no". I just went to sephora and nordstrom and five guys and bolted.

I pre-ordered mine with Sprint and took it back yesterday; so I went to the Apple store to pick up an AT&T model and yes, we were in line with our reservation cards. They had A LOT in stock. That was in Charlotte at the SouthPark Mall.

I pre-ordered from AT&T, but went to my local store to bit a screen protector Saturday. I just drove by and kept goin. The parking lot was completely full, and about 20 people waiting to be helped. It's a shame this i4S is such a failure.

Heh. I really didn't expect it to be in such high demand. I'm perfectly happy with my 4 and the 5 will probably be nearing at around the time my contract is up so I'll wait for that.
I'm assuming most of these people are 3GS owners upgrading or first time iPhone purchasers

I was in my local AT&T store yesterday morning as they opened. I needed to get a new SIM for my iPhone 4 to pass it down to my daughter. While I was there, 4 or 5 people were in the store looking for the iPhone 4S, and the rep helping me answered at least 3 calls from people looking for the new phone.
Yeah, Pilsbury, it's a freaking shame that isn't selling well. (Except for the 4 million already sold - in the first 10 days).

The Apple store had lines Monday here in Atlanta (one of them anyways, not sure about the other ones)...i went to try and get a case, but didn't want to fight through all of the chaos. AT&T stores local to me were either sold out or crowded...the only place i noticed didn't have anyone (and still had iPhones) was Best Buy, where i ended up getting my case as well. She said they had five 16GB's and a few 32GB's (and said they never got any 64GB's even on launch day).
My brother walked in and got his on Sunday at a Walmart near him...no line, no wait, white 4S 16GB.
