I haven't decided. I probably won't be buying that day regardless, but I would like to play with one in person. I usually hit Classen Grille for breakfast on Saturdays. So I'll probably swing by Saturday morning after my migas and coffee.

It's nice to see other Okies here on MacRumors!!! Probably won't be going to OKC, I am opting for a local corporate ATT store because I am having my current number ported. Keep us posted on the chaos that is sure to ensue at Penn Square!

I will be at the ATT store at Penn, from what I was told, they are closing the ATT store at 4:30 and opening at 6, first come first serve.

Awesome!
Let's all of us who are buying on the 29th try to find out as soon as possible whether the Penn Applestore or the ATT store there will have more iPhones. We should probably split ourselves up to make sure we all have the best line positions. If the 3 million number is true, and 2000 retail locations roughly in the U.S., that comes out to 1500 iPhones per store! In a more likely event, if they were to save 1 million for stores and 2 million to push out to other retail channels/online sales, that's still 500 iPhones per store! If 3 million is a lie, divide by 3 that's still 150 iPhones per store. Seeing as the iPhone is more expensive and complicated of a purchase than a Nintendo Wii and that kids/teens (those under 18) are pretty much out, I don't think competition will be all that fierce, at least on launch day - but I believe in launch day camping (the Wii as an example) since that's really one of the few days where you know the store will have it.

Those who are going to Penn on the 29th PM me and maybe we could meet up.

Camping out for a phone? :eek: C'mon isn't there anything better to do with your time? You'll get one, relax. I'm sure Apple will make as many as are needed and be happy to jack the price to max people will pay. It's a cool device and all, but c'mon.. is browsing the web and talking and watching movies on your phone all that? Are you going to squirrel yourselves away in the corner of your local coffee pub watching movies on your 2 inch screen instead of on your TV? How long until the novelty wears off. Is it worth camping out just to say "Hey look I've got an iPhone before anyone I'm the hippest!"

Half the fun of a new product launch is the adrenaline rush you get camping for a product, ready to take another human life in order to get the latest silicon. And yeah, I want my ********** iPhone on the 29th, it's been long enough already.

I went to my local cingular store (Norman) the other day to inquire re: the iPhone. They informed me that only "retail" cingular stores are getting the iPhone. I am not sure exactly what that means- but I interpreted it to mean that not every single cingular store (the mall kiosks, for example) would be getting the iPhone on the 29th.

Does anyone know which stores in the OKC metro area are going to be getting the iPhone-- other than the Apple store in Penn Square Mall, I mean?

Only corporate owned ATT stores will get the iphone, the 'dealer' stores wont, so unless you go to a corporate store or apple store, no go.

So is there any way to know which stores are "corporate" stores, and which are not?

The store I was in was a "cingular" store. (Big orange cingular outside)
I wasn't at Metro Cellular or Jackie Cooper Electronics or any of those authorized resellers.

I called the ATT store on memorial (near memorial and may, across from quail springs) to verify that they were getting iphones... and they confirmed that they are...

just in case anyone was looking for a place in s. edmond/n. okc...

I'll be driving down to OKC from stillwater. I'll probably be at penn square unless the line is ridiculous... if so, I'll try and find one of the corporate AT&T stores with a smaller line.

Man, it's nice to know I'm not the only Okie around on this site... Now I just wish I didn't have to buy AppleCare last week for my MBP so I could afford to camp out for one this Friday at Penn Square :(

Too bad I cant afford an iPhone. :( I need to save up for a MBP.

I was going to go to an AT&T store just because the lines have to be smaller, but I have a $30 Apple Gift card, so I am torn.:rolleyes:
