    No, she will be working that day. She does know I'm getting it for her so it won't be that big of a surprise, but I'll drop it off to her when I'm on my way home so she will have her new toy to play with at work.
    That's a pretty awesome way to brighten her day.

    Wow - a carrier rep sold you new iPhones Before launch? Be a little careful posting about that- sounds like a fire- able offense.
    I would assume he just gave them the money and they will ring it up friday? iPhones have to be rung up in the iconic portal POS system and not the normal VZW POS (unless its changed for this year, but been like this for every VZW iphone release) This is how Apple and VZW tracks their sales, so using the iConic portal to ring up the phone would get that rep fired ASAP, and Apple doesnt even get the iphones to the store until the night before (tonight, unless this has changed also)

    Gold is best. Best. Best. Best.

    32GB gold for me if they've got one

    I would prefer gold as well, but if it comes down to it I will take whichever is available at the time.

    This will be the first year I have not stood in line to get the new iPhone.
    I'm just getting tired of waiting up all night. This year I'm trying something different. My friend works at the local AT&T store and I'm just going to have him hold a couple for me.
    All the 16GB will go first, then 32 and 64. I have heard that Apple has made a lot of gold iPhone's. They are supposed to be very popular around the world. Not sure about the US though. I have always gotten black but this year I'm going to get white. Might even go for a gold one if available. The Black models go first any ways. We will see! But hope everyone has fun in line!

    I lined up for 5 last year, and for iPad mini a month later. Subdued but fun both times. I was #7 on line @ VZW store for 5 - all of us were just a little embarrassed to be there. Lined up @ Apple store for the mini - leaving on a cross-country flight the next day, so I was hell-bent on having the mini to travel instead of my full-size iPad. Waited longer for mini - and met some very cool people in line. Again, everyone a little embarrassed. Not planning to line up tomorrow (certainly not overnight) - yet if I wake up early? I might decide to try - cannot rule it out! I want what nobody wants anyway - unlocked, unsubsidized 64G - only a few of us nut jobs who would consider paying for those!

    No. You must be an "authorized user" on her account. She can contact AT&T and set it up...

    They are saying all that is going to be available tomorrow is black. There will only be a few white or gold. So unless you are one of the first few people don't think gold will be available tomorrow.

    Bring whatever other electronics you have and backup batteries if you have them. I'll have my current iPhone 5, my iPad, and my MBP. I don't usually go the lawn chair route, but I do bring a padded picnic blanket that I can actually lie down on. And snacks and water/soda, of course. But don't drink too much because depending on where you are, there might not be bathrooms available until you get into the mall. But once inside, in my experience, people are very nice about holding your spot while you take a bathroom break.
    This.

    I'm doing that too, but at Verizon.

    I'm loading up my Nexus 4 with some movies. Because it was cheap and I may as well use it for something!

    I wanted to order a phone online and go wait in line but I would have to add a line no contract and cancel blah blah blah seems like too much work. I`m going to maybe go to VZW around 1 or 2 am.

    Heading to my local Apple store in 15 minutes! It's 6:44p Thursday here in VA. If anyone is going to MacArthur I'll be at N2 in a Ravens chair, bring some good conversation and I'll share my Teriyaki beef jerkey.
