    I did for every iPhone model through the 4. I bought the 4S at BestBuy and the 5S through T-Mobile. I will never stand in a line again for an iPhone. I skipped the 5.

    I won't pick the next iPhone up until end of November. That's my next upgrade. I have always thought about going to the store at launch to experience it but it won't happen this time around.

    I would say it really depends on the product introduced and my personal hype level. That will determine how quickly I want it and therefore if I'll join the people in the queue or decide I can wait a couple of weeks/months.

    I've only waited in line for something once and that was on Boxing Day in canada. I'll probably never do that again since I didn't sleep and it was freeeezing cold. But anyway, I can't see myself waiting in line as my local apple store is pretty unknown. If the iPhone 6 is that great I'll go later in the week.

    Order it online. Just easier to have it mailed to home or work. I tried the line thing once, and it was not for me.

    In depends on which manner is available to us. For the iPhone 4s I went to Verizon when they opened and got one on launch day, though it was a 64GB. For the iPhone 5 I stayed up until 3AM EST and got a order in before it backed up and it delivered launch day. For the iPhone 5s I waited 10 hours in a parking garage and clenched the 3rd spot of 250+ and again got it on launch day. Camping out really isn't as horrible as one might think. I met a couple really cool people and had some great conversation, in fact it seemed like everyone enjoyed themselves. But anyway I'll do whatever is available as an option.

    I'm one of those guys they talk about on TV. Camp out all night. I have done it for most of the iPhones, I ordered my iPads online. I think I will probably camp again this time around.

    I'll probably do the same. I did it with the iPhone 5s. I go to the mobile store in a mall which had just 8 people on line while the big Best Buy across the street from there had dozens. 😛

    I waited in line about 2.5 hours (in the middle of the day) for the 5S. I don't think I'll do it again but I actually had fun...met a lot of different characters that day! Lol

    Next time I'll wait a few weeks before I pick it up...or not!

    That's what I intend to do too. We should both go get it on the same day once we know the issues aren't present or are resolved. ;-P

    But Apple has a fantastic warranty, should anything go wrong with the device.

    According to AT&T my upgrade is 9.22.14. If Apple releases a bigger screen iPhone on or after that date - and assuming no pre-orders - I'll be on line somewhere to get one on launch day. My 5 has served me well but I'm ready for the next big thing.

    I will probably do my normal and wait approx 30 days after release and go to Verizon and pick it up. Of course as the release date nears thats subject to change....SMILE

    When the new iPhone comes out are you the type that can't wait and will stand in line no matter what at the Apple Store, Carrier or Big Box Store or order from the comfort of your home online?
    Usually I preorder, that way I can stay at home and do other things, rather than wait in line and then not even be guaranteed to get one on launch day. Plus I hate dealing with carrier stores so that is another reason I order online.

    I waited in line for the first time last year and it was actually kind of fun because it was only a couple hours and the weather was pleasant. I arrived at 5:45am and was second in line, the first person got there 5-10 minutes before me. This year I'll get there probably a half hour earlier because I'd like to be first. The only drawback was there were a few people walking up and down the sidewalk clearing up to shady business (not that I'd expect anything else at 5am, though), but that's why I got a license to carry a concealed weapon.

    I'm thinking I'm going to preorder and then walk in the Apple Store opening day (assuming it has arrived) to pick it up.

    I'm hoping that they have preorders this year. That's what I normally do. I waited in line for the 5s because I wanted the gold but I don't ever want to do that again.

    Since my upgrade period is in November (not this year but next year), if I do buy an iPhone 6 I will trade in my iPhone 5s and iPad Air to the Apple Store to do so. If I buy a Galaxy Note 3 or Note 4 I'll do the same with Verizon.

    If the iPhone 6 is released in September or October I'll wait until November or December and go to my local Apple store where I bought my iPad and three iPhones (4s, 5, and then 5s).
