    Making the official switch from Blackberry Bold 9000 to the new iPhone4 on Thursday! Going to show up at 2 a.m. to the Chandler Fashion Mall in Arizona. Checked with the mall security and the mall will open up at 5 a.m., but im not taking ANY chances

    You're lucky. The mall I'm going to keeps telling me that they don't know what's going on yet. Well what did you do for the iPad launch or last years iPhone launch I ask. "We don't know" they reply. Grrrrrrr.....

    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.
    They won't let you in the PARKING LOT?! That's ridiculous! Man... I didn't realize some malls were like that. Woodfield is awesome. They have tape and barricades set up for stuff like that. Security also makes sure the people that waited get in the doors and in the store first. They've always been really cool and talked with us outside, and occasionally apple employees come out and mingle a bit or say hey throughout the night.

    We do the night before in line mainly just because of the atmosphere. We see some of the same people every year and they're all awesome. We stay up and talk Apple and other tech all night. It's 1 of my only nerd nights a year that Kimmy is willing to participate in because it's actually a lot of fun..

    Now I'm feeling hurt that Apple will send some iPhone 4's for early delivery, but we can't go to the store to get ours one day early!

    I just called the Apple Store in the Maine Mall. The Mall opens at 6:00 and the Store at 7:00. Due to the Malls layout, it's hard to know which exterior door will be unlocked first and lines are expected at both doors near the Store. It's going to be chaos!

    But! She assured me that if I have a reservation, they are setting aside sufficient new iPhones for everyone so reserved. She further went and checked that I was indeed on their list (and I was)!

    So, I'm asking, unless you want to be some sort of Apple masochist, why the heck would you want to put yourself through this madness--not to mention sleep deprivation? Just wait until later in the day (if you have a confirmation and the flexibility) and enjoy a more sane and peaceful introduction to your new iPhone.

    Well since I was unable to pre order last week I am trying to get one tommrow as a walk in. The apple store in Norfolk, Va is in MacAurther Mall and they said the Mall will open at 6am and the store will open at 7am. This is the first time I went to an Iphone Launch. I want to get there at like 4 am but I don't know if the mall will let me park in the garagage that early. Anyone got any advise for a newbie (by the way upgrading from an iphone 3G). Think I will have a shot at getting one without a pre order tommorow?

    Green Hills mall - Nashville, TN.

    Now that I think about it, I'm not sure why I pre-ordered. I'm quite convinced I'm the only person who knows how to use a smartphone in this state. There's no danger of running out of stock.
    Thought I was here in Memphis. If there's even a single person forming a line here, I'm waiting on my fall out plan.

    Hype strictly sells these devices here.

    I searched around a bit, but did not see the answer I seek and didn't want to start a new topic. Anyways, I'm trying to figure out who is the misinformed one in this case, AT&T or Apple Stores. So I was unable to pre-order due to the awesome server meltdown, so I'm attempting to walk-in. The issue is, AT&T is not offering the walk-in service until next week, so I'm wanting to try my luck at my local Apple store. My issue is I am NOT the primary on my account, my wife is. I am however an authorized user and know all of the necessary info. I called two different apple stores this morning asking if they are doing walk-ins and at what time. Then I asked if I am able to purchase the phone at my upgrade price without my wife being there, and both the different Apple Store employees said yes, as long as I am an authorized user I can upgrade But NOT add a line. They said all I will need to know is my wife's last 4 on her social and the billing zip. Then I called AT&T just to double check and they said that it was impossible for me to upgrade without my wife present at an Apple store and I can only purchase the iPhone 4 at a corporate AT&T location. So who is lying? haha I really need to know as my wife will NOT under any circumstance wait in line for MY phone!! haha

    Rant/

    Thanks

    Just found out that the mall I'm going to doesn't allow lines to form outside until 15mins before they open the doors which is 6 am. This is bad. There is gonna be a bum rush to the Apple store. I'd planned to get there at 430 to get a good spot. Grrrrr....

    thats kinda sweet though. Just find out from security which doors will open first then get a spot in the lot where u can see the door and when it gets close to that time or you see ppl opening their car doors etc. Go for it! At least that way you get to spend most of the wait in the comfort of your car!

    See I thought about this but the problem is that this mall has several entrances and they ALL open at 6. I just hope that the one I'll be at (closest to the Apple store) is opened first. I'll be okay if I'm at least one of the first 10 people in line.

    Mall I'm going to (Somerset) wasn't all that helpful all I figured out is the doors open @5 and the Apple Store opens @7. I'm going to get there @4 and hope for the best if I don't get then then oh well I'll wait until at later date.

    I'm going to stop by the Biltmore in Phoenix tomorrow morning and see what the line is like. If it's too long, I'll go to work and come back at lunch and see how it goes. The store opens at 7am and I live right across the street. Maybe the news tonight will show me how many people are already out there.

    You know, given the choice between getting it early or waiting in line, I think I might have chosen waiting in line, if it was with the awesome TiPB crew!

    Chestnut Hill Mall in Chestnut Hill, MA -- just outside of Boston.

    I've got one reserved, so don't really have any worries... However, I'm just completely in the dark as to how much of a crowd there will be. I've NEVER (and I'm serious) been to this mall and seen more than 25-50 people in there. It's really weird. Maybe the area is bad? It's all higher-end stores, for the most part, so it doesn't draw the younger crowd. But really, it's weird. I've never been to such a consistently empty mall!

    So who knows, maybe I'll be in and out by 7:05? I wish!
