    When the new iPhone comes out are you the type that can't wait and will stand in line no matter what at the Apple Store, Carrier or Big Box Store or order from the comfort of your home online?

    For my 5 I lined up two hours before the shop opened and came out with exactly what I wanted (white/silver 32Gb). I was the sixth person. I tried to get an unlocked gold 5s for three weeks after they launched from a US store and just couldn't.

    This time I will buy unlocked online from the Apple Store as i'm going to be in the USA by then.

    Yep, I'll wait a week or so and either walk in to a nearby Verizon Wireless or HHGregg Store and buy it or travel 30 minutes to the nearest Apple Store. If there's still a line of people waiting at that time, I'll call everyday until I find one available and then ask them to hold it for me while I get dressed, and then go get it.........Waiting in line for the sake of being there is not my thing.

    I think I might try my hand at going in to buy but I don't normally get involved in the the long lines and madness for anything.

    Since I just bought my 5S on a new 2 year contract I won't be buying the new one but I would have done what I always do...Drive an hour to my local Apple store and but it there like I did this one. In November of this year they are building a new Ultra Big Mall that will open and Apple now has it's place there 15 mins away from me. I will be spending my fair time there I am sure.

    If I'm getting one on a contract then I rather go to my carrier and get one about a month or two after release. If I'm getting an unlocked one I would wait in line at an apple store.

    I won't wait in line. I'll wait a few days or so, then I'll go to my local Verizon store or the Apple store about 45 minutes away and pick it up.

    I'll likely wait a month or two. Then go into an Apple store and get an unlocked variant. I never buy any phone on release day. I like to watch the early adopters to see if there are any defects/manufacturing problems. Then once they've got those bugs ironed out, I get myself one.

    5s release is the first release that wasn't available for preorder, which sucked. I was out looking for it even though I ordered on time that morning. I need another tactic since they failed me last time. 3GS & 4 I went to the store and sat for hours waiting. It wasn't the first day of course.

    Sounds like what I do except I go to the Apple store but I want to hear about the early issues with the phone first and hear everyone complain...lol

    I just wait a few months if I'm up for an upgrade if I'm not I find someone who is selling the previous version and buy it if I can.

    I'll wait myself it's not a big deal and most of the time you don't end up with what you want if you stand in line

    I used to be the type that went to my nearest Apple store and would wait for the device I reserved online. I had two bad experiences involving people in line and I haven't waited in line since the 4S.

    I will be willing to wait in line at an Apple store again if the iPhone finally gets a larger screen. If the next iPhone gets at least a 5" screen I will gladly wait in line. I want one that badly.

    Depending on what Apple releases, I'll be at the store. I'm do for an upgrade this year. I've enjoyed the 5 but am ready for something more. I was the third person in line to get mine when they were released and it was really fun to hang out and talk about the new phone. Looking forward to this year.

    No Brainer ... Pre-order online from Apple. Wait time is limited to how long it takes me to open the door, and have FedEx hand it to me on DayOne ...

    About two weeks and then I'm off to the wholesaler shop I frequent for cheaper, non-cutthroat prices.
