    I am camping for the first time here in Vancouver! I am looking foward to this new experience! And good luck with your Android to iOS experience, nice choice
    I will be going to the Coquitlam store early in the morning to get the Apple experience for the first time, after getting phones on launch day from the carriers the past 4 years. I did cheat though, I preordered for store pickup that morning between 8-9 am.

    I'm hoping that the Bethesda row apple store will have ample supply of phones available for non Pre orders. I want the iPhone 6, silver, 64 gig for T-Mobile. Apparently that sold out quickly on Pre order Friday.

    Same with the iPhone 6 64 GB Space Gray for T-Mobile. The pre-orders for it ran out quickly. I bet I can still get the one I want though Hopefully you will get yours too!

    Yeah, I have a good feeling that if I plan ahead and get there at a reasonable time, I will be able to grab what I want. On another note I have been disowned by wife who has a note 3 and will be getting the note 4. She said no snacks for me! Lol

    I'm still trying to figure out how early to get there if I preordered for store pick up. I've never done this before.

    Since you pre-ordered for in store pickup, you should be able to get there whenever (unless Apple sends an email saying otherwise). My recommendation is not to go immediately before working hours, lunchtime, or immediately after work hours as I would guess those will be the most popular hours for pre-order in store pickup. But be prepared to wait some regardless since the Apple Store can only hold so many people at once.

    I have no experience in this as this is my first iPhone and first iPhone launch. I will be at the Bethesda row store and my plan is to be there at or about 7-8pm Thursday night to give me the best chance. I'm prepared for a long night.

    Why on earth would someone stand or sit in line for a phone? I just don't understand. You should buy shirts that say "it's an Apple thing... You wouldn't understand."

    So I decided to camp out for the full experience. I did preorder for store pickup, but I have to go out of town "sometimes" on Friday, so the sooner I get scanned the sooner I can get my phone and be on my way.
    The coolest part?
    My husband is making me a thermos of coffee, driving me to and picking me up from the mall when I'm ready, and he'll be packing at home.

    I so lucked out. Hehe.
