Input for Chicago Area: What's the best store to visit without camping out?!
I'm new here! I'm super excited for the iPhone 5 because the battery on my Blackberry Bold 9700 is SHOT, on top of T-Mobile's slow data (ironic). I'm switching to AT&T, and I'm a college student in the Chicago area.
What I'm really trying to figure out is, what's the best store to go to without camping out? Do people campout at the AT&T stores up here? Should I try a day after, or should I go to the store at a later time?
Same questions go for RadioShack and Best Buy.
I'm torn because I want to go in the morning and not deal with the rush. However, I'm really considering going in the afternoon to one of these three stores, but I'm worried about them running out.
Could you all help me out with my decision if possible?

Just go into the place your considering and preorder it. Even Samsclub can be done online. If you're getting a 16gb one, your chances are good at walmart, sams, target, radio shack, etc.
If you want one in hand on the 21st, even with a preorder, it's best to go early. That's only common sense. They'll be gone by afternoon and probably out of stock after that point.

If you can make it to the suburbs, I would go to Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg. I camped there for the iPhone 4 and mall security opened the mall at like 4 or 5 AM and let us inside. It's better than sitting outside!
The mall walkers were pretty confused though. Lol!
