    When the 4s came out, I was able to walk in Biltmore Apple Store and grab one. The lines already cleared by lunch. I would think San Tan apple store might be better for you.

    I was at the Arrowhead store for the iPhone 4 launch... got there about 5:30 am... store opened at 8:00 am ... home by about 9:30 am.

    I live in Chandler and when the 5 came out every place was either sold out or had long lines. I waited in line at AT&T by chandler fashion center, was asked what size and color I wanted. I was told there were only 2 left and by the time it was my turn they were all gone. Someone in front of me decided they wanted a lower capacity. I was lucky to get the last one from best buy later in the evening and this was after searching all day for one in stock somewhere. Of course I wanted a 16gb, probably would have been easier to find a 32 or 64.

    When I was there for the iPhone 4 launch, yes... probably 150 people in line ahead of me. Since the mall is closed (most stores don’t open until 10:00 am), people just line up down the mall streaming away from the Apple store...

    I can’t say, as I’ve never been there... but since there are 3 Apple stores in the east valley and only one on the west side, I’d expect the crowds to be a bit smaller - more stores to handle the traffic.

    Hey Chandler peeps! I lived there when until I got out of grade school. According to Google street view, the neighborhood around Frye Elementary has changed a LOT!

    I'd go if didn't live all the way out in Cave Creek. The nearest apple store by me is at Scottsdale Quarter. I'm pretty sure that one will be real busy.

    I went about 40 minutes before they opened, so I have no idea what time they started standing line.

    What time though does the actual mall open up so you can line up? I would be interested in putting together a team for Chandler.

    The Apple stores open up at 8AM so I would expect the malls to open at that time as well in order for customers to get into the store.

    I haven't done the cattle call lineup since iPhone 4, but the Arrowhead Towne Center was open when I got there at about 5:30. Lots of olds olds walk inside the mall before the stores open. They were really confused by several hundred people liked up in at that hour.

    I remember a pretty good sized line for the iPhone 5 release at Arrowhead Mall. I live close by and happened to be in the mall for an unrelated reason. It wasn't a line like you see in the ads, but it was quite crowded.

    Good luck!
