    Good news! They said they have 60 of each size so a total of 120 in stock. 60 more come in at 3pm today. Either way I should walk away this morning with an iphone!

    Yep, decided to get there around 4:30. #6 in line. People kept coming steadily until about 6:30. Ended up with around 35 people behind me. They had more 32GB than 16GB, but they didn't specify how many - everyone in line should have gotten one.

    But they were only allowing one per plan. For example, a guy was on a family plan with his son and wife - his son was with him - but they only allowed him one. His son went to the end of the line.

    This is in Forest Lake, MN which is about 45 minutes north of the downtown area. At least 3 AT&T stores along the highway south of Forest Lake.

    I just got back from the Auburn Hills, MI store. I got there at 5 and was #26 in line, there were probably 75 people by the time the doors opened. I got the last 32 gb (they only got 10 of them) but they seemed to have plenty of 16 gb in stock and were supposed to be getting a shipment again this afternoon.

    I just got back from the Mall in IN not to long ago. I got there about 6:45, total of 6 people in line and 1 guy already had an i4. Only in there for about 10 min.

    And that's the way it should be.

    I just got home from the AT&T store with my 32GB! I got in line about 5:30 and walked into the store and a person helped me about 8:45am. Walked out at 9am and now I'm just waiting on the services to be activated. I'm hoping it's soon since my Bold 9700 just lost service. They said it could take awhile since their systems are so overloaded today and with Cali opening now or soon it'll really be busy. I'm so stoked!

    So even if everyone is eligible for an upgrade, only one person should be able to get it right now?

    Why? If two physical customers were there, they should get two phones, regardless of whether or not they were on a single plan. If they'd had this policy at the store I went to this morning, there would have been some pretty angry people in front of me.

    Now, one person buying multiple phones, yes, I could see that being an issue. But I don't have a problem with someone bringing their wife or kid or whatever with them so they both can upgrade their phones.

    Nonsense.. if two customers are apart of the same plan, both should be able to get phones. There is no reason for one to have to go back to the end of the line when that person obviously took the time to get his spot in line ahead of you.

    I agree! Thats just ridiculous! If they pay for 2 LINES and are BOTH eligible for upgrades then they shouldnt have a problem getting 2 iPhone 4's!!
