    Not a bad idea. I will grill outside my garage so I can catch the UPS guy 10 steps before he reaches my door

    One thing that I kinda glad about is that this iphone launch is in September when lots of people have work, and school etc. The iphone 4 launch was during the summer so lots of people had time off and stuff. Even though I know some people are gonna take off work and school to stand in line for this phone, I am hoping that the line wouldn't be too crazy when I go around 3 or 4 am tomorrow. (it helps that I have the day off from work tomorrow so lol).

    Not waiting in line, I preordered, but hopefully you guys have as much fun in this thread as I did in the pajama party thread last week. It sure helped pass the time while we waited. Good luck everyone!

    I am waiting at the Lenox Square store in Atlanta, GA. The mall is kicking everyone off the premises until 5:00 when they allow people in the parking lot, which is when I will arrive.

    Good luck, Rene.

    If I had an Apple store within an hour or so of my house, I'd consider lining up there. Alas, no apple store around. I pre-ordered mine but I'm sure I will be here to keep you guys company! My UPS man doesn't come until after 6pm my time anyways.
