    My very first iPhone. I did a reservation. Called the store and confirmed and they assured me it will be there all day waiting for me. Wasn't able to pre-order thanks to at&t.

    I'm not sure what time I should go. I probably won't be able to sleep the night before, so I'm thinking about going in bright and early. I could do the responsible thing and actually go to work and just pick it up later in the day, but that's no fun.
    Welcome to the iPhone fun! Warning- it's addictive!

    Typically, what are the regulations for waiting overnight at an Apple Store located in a mall? Are you allowed inside at most malls? Any insight would be appreciated.

    People have to wait outside. When the time comes, that's when they allow you inside. The way the malls do it here is have some wait directly wait outside, about 25 people max, and the rest wait around the corner. I'm sure the rest do it similarly.

    Wonder where you wait since the store in my mall doesn't have an outside storefront. I guess maybe the entrance closest to the store. Wonder if I should go to the local ATT since it will be easier to see when people start lining up and it will be obvious where to line up. Thoughts?

    I've actually been digging to find out. Apparently the entrance between Elephant Bar and Barnes & Noble. Gonna call on Monday to get that confirmed by mall security.

    I'll probably have on a Chicago Bears shirt. :-)
    Wow if you find out please post the guy at the apple store said he had no idea.

    Depends on the mall. Our Apple store is located inside woodfield mall. We wait outside at a specific entrance, they have an area that's normally specified for iPhone launches, and I'm sure, other product launches. In the past, they never complained about people lining up, the security guards came out around 4am and gave the people waiting numbered wristbands so when hoards of people came, no one that waited all night got cut by some jerk. Around 5:30-6am they open the mall doors and let us wait outside the apple store. they took us in about 15 at a time and the rest waited outside. Eventually the line went all the way from the Apple store outside the mall doors. Woodfield is pretty lax as long as people don't get rowdy but that probably varies from mall to mall. We all waited in one line outside woodfield, security was really cool and apple employees popped in and out all throughout the night, took pics with us and talked with us. It's a fun time, that's why we do it there every year. All the people in line are awesome as well as the mall and apple employees.

    I love Woodfield. Used to go there all the time when I lived in Lake County. Wish I were there actually.

    I'll be at North Point Mall In Alpharetta, GA. I was hoping to get there early but it will be about 8:30 before I can. I did check with one mall here and they said the mall would open at 6:00 am.

    I live about an hour or so away from woodfield. I didn't think I would even see anyone that close to me on this forum.

    Garden State Mall in NJ and then Willowbrook Mall in NJ.
    Dude, did you reserve the iphone or pickup or are you just going as a walkin? This is my first time buying an iphone, let alone on launch day, and I'm going as a walk-in. I just wanted to know what time you think I should show up at Garden State Mall in order to be one of the first handled at 7 a.m? Also, do you know what time the doors open up?

    Awesome! Come find me! I'm hoping to get there around 4:30a. I know they said we can't wait in the parking lot, but I'm going to try. haha. What are they going to do, have a line of cars waiting to get into the parking garage?? That'd be interesting.
