    Anyone out there planning on waiting in line in the Philadelphia area ?
    Danny, I live in Chester County, and even though I won't be in a line on launch day, I would go to the King of Prussia mall if I were going to. The apple store in there was actually moved and made bigger in the mall, and that is the only one around my area that I know of (I am not sure about actually IN Philly).

    I did KOP for the 4s, looong lines. I was thinking of trying Armore this time.

    I`m in Atlanta would you guys recommend driving out to a Verizon in one of the far suburbs or deal with an Apple store? I know Apple Stores are always more packed but have a ton of inventory, while VZW inventory varies buy the Volume of the store. When I worked at VZW there were maybe 1-2 people outside at 6-7am seems most people got there at 8 and we opened at 9.

    I am in Atlanta going to line up at Verizion store at like 5. Ordered 4s online so will be first time in line. Didn't want to wait at Apple figured line would be a lot longer.

    thats another reason i wanna go, i've never experienced first hand getting an apple device at launch in store first day so i'm hoping it'll be alot of fun.
    I've done it. It was for the iphone 4. couldn't order it online, don't remember why. In my experience, its basically standing in a line forever. LOL I think it sucks but i want my hands on that 5S so I'll be in that line, hoping to god it moves quickly.

    you ever been in a long line? yeah thats what its like. LMAO I don't know why people enjoy that. But hey whatever floats your boat.

    Waiting is actually really fun. I did it with the iPhone 3G and it truly was a party. I will be at Derby Street in Hingham Mass, Going to get a 32GB model in Gray. Can't wait

    Thanks! That's helpful. Do you know if the line started inside before the mall closed, and was then moved outside? I'm trying to envision this. I'm still hoping to find a friend to go with me, but most of my friends who have iPhones don't seem to be eligible for an upgrade. And my husband will be watching our little boys! :-D
    When I got my 5 I got to the mall at about 1:30am and we had to wait outside in the parking lot. Security wouldn't let anyone line up till 4am. By 6 we were in the mall. But even by 1:30am there were about 20-30 people in front of me.


    If at first you don't succeed, hide all evidence you've tried.

    I'm going to camp out at my local AT&T store. I plan to get there around 6am. I'm sure the line will be long but I don't want to be there all night.
    That's what I plan in on doing but at Verizon. After I got my 5 in the mall, I had to go to Verizon across the street because in order for me to get it, I had to add a line on my account, and went to Verizon to do an equipment change and get a new SIM card. Needless to say their lines there weren't long at all, but it was kinda funny and nice when people in line swarmed over me to see the new phone lol.

    I'm palming to get to mine about 4am or so. I'm in Cincinnati and going to the one by Kenwood.


    I just thought of something: an IMore forum member meetup. I know this isn't feasible for everyone but if several members live in the same area, to meet up at their designated locations.

    I am with Sprint and live in kansas city which is where they are based so they have a million corporate stores. We do have two apple stores but I think I will have better luck at the corporate stores. I stopped in one yesterday and they are opening at 8 so I will try the closest one to me at like 7 am and if there's a huge line I might try the next closest (both are within a few miles of my house). If they are both swarmed then I might just order it or keep trying the next week. I don't want to sit outside for 8 hours for a phone but I don't mind going a little early. It does help that I think that Sprint is one of the smallest Iphone markets compared to AT&T or Verizon so I don't think demand will be as bad.

    First time iMore user here! Been over with CrackBerry for quite a while. I've owned the iPhone 4 and 5 but currently am using a BlackBerry Z10. I also own an iPad 4th gen. and a MacBook Pro. I need to go back to iPhone because that is what my job requires and I can honestly say I am excited to wait in line! It's something I have never done before and hope its a good time! Will be at the Chandler Fashion Mall in Chandler, AZ hoping to pick up a grey or gold 5s!

    Yeah do it Dennis, especially if you've never waited in line, it's really a fun experience! Last year the employees came out with doughnuts and coffee.

    My friend and I waited from 2am on, we had our iPads going, it was great! Want to do it this year but don't know if I'll be able to

    If I get to wait it will be at the Fashion Fair Mall, in Fresno, CA!

    I was planning on going to an Apple store but Sprint is offering a $100 off any phone when you port in a number and I don't think the Apple store will honor that. Now my choice is to go to a Sprint store which is awful or order online but then I have to wait until at least monday to get my new phone.... decisions, decisions lol. Actually the more I think about the more annoyed I am that there is no pre-order for the 5s.

    That's a great deal but eww why Sprint?! Do they have LTE and good coverage in your area? What carrier do you have now?

    I would highly recommend staying away from Sprint no matter how enticing the deal.

    I would say around midnight or 1 am LOL. When I waited in line last year my friend and I got there at 2 am and there were already about 50 people in front of us.

    You don't know by now if you'll be off?! Cray Cray!

    I have them currently and was planning on leaving but I have an iPad and I have my mother and a friend on my account. My mom was indifferent but my friend doesn't have money for a new phone so I either leave her with nothing or I have to pay for a phone for her and so I'm staying with them for now all my contracts will be up within 6 months other than the new line so at that time I will look into vzw or AT&T again and just pay the etf on this new line. I truly don't like sprint and their data speeds are so slow but 8 out of 10 times I'm somewhere that has wifi so it doesn't really effect my daily use.

    I'm stepping out of my comfort zone and I followed a friend of mine who works at Best Buy to get my iPhone 5S there...and really just because she was able to put me on a hold list for my phone and my wife's phone, so that I don't have to worry about stock and what not. Hopefully it pans out as it seems it will, she said it was simply a matter of putting the two phones aside for me to come and get, but I know that is not a sure bet. Unfortunately I'm out of town after Friday night, so if they don't have mine, I'll just wait until next week sometime.
