Official iPhone 5 line-up tailgate party!!
This is it iMore nation, it's GO time! The new iPhone 5 is about to launch in countries around the world! So here's the deal, while we're all lining up in stores, we'll also be hanging out and passing the time, swapping stories, figuring out which iPhones to get, exchanging favorite apps, and otherwise having a massive iPHONE 5 TAILGATE party right here in the forums!
And yeah, we'll be giving out t-shirts and other swag, both here and in the lineups!
Post your photos, tell us where you are and update us on the length of the lines, tell us if Apple comes out and gives you tickets, tell us when the doors open, and most importantly, TELL US WHEN YOU GET YOUR NEW iPHONE!
I'll be at the Fairview Pte. Claire Apple Store outside of Montreal, starting around midnight. Georgia will show up there at some point too. (#lazy.)
So let's get this party going! *Fires up virtual bbq behind virtual trailer, starts handing out virtual beverages!*

Not a bad idea. I will grill outside my garage so I can catch the UPS guy 10 steps before he reaches my door

One thing that I kinda glad about is that this iphone launch is in September when lots of people have work, and school etc. The iphone 4 launch was during the summer so lots of people had time off and stuff. Even though I know some people are gonna take off work and school to stand in line for this phone, I am hoping that the line wouldn't be too crazy when I go around 3 or 4 am tomorrow. (it helps that I have the day off from work tomorrow so lol).

I think I will go over to the AT&T Store around 8am. The nearest Apple store is 2+ hours away.

I could have went to our apple store in the fashion show mall here in Vegas, but hubby bought ours online.

Lining up at the UPS store where mine will be delivered to my mailbox. Probably tackle the UPS guy right after he gets out of his truck.

I am waiting at the Lenox Square store in Atlanta, GA. The mall is kicking everyone off the premises until 5:00 when they allow people in the parking lot, which is when I will arrive.

Good luck, Rene.
If I had an Apple store within an hour or so of my house, I'd consider lining up there. Alas, no apple store around. I pre-ordered mine but I'm sure I will be here to keep you guys company! My UPS man doesn't come until after 6pm my time anyways.
