I'm debating between camping at the AT&T store on Douglas by Boarders or the one across from the Galleria. I have to go scope out the Galleria store today, if the parking looks right I'll be there. I want to be able to park my truck right in front of the store so I can have a TV and 360. The Boarders center won't work for that.

Planning on stopping by after work on Thursday to make sure no line is forming, and check back every hour if not. I camped out for the 360 and black Friday, so I've got some experience, and I'll be fully prepared this time. :)

Oddly enough there isn't much ruckus coming from the Northern California side of MacRumors. I'm in the East Bay, toaster is in SF, and we're the only ones that are saying things. If you want to get a good idea of where damage will occur in the Northern California, check craigslist and see who is selling their stuff and soul to afford an iPhone, you'd be amazed.

Honestly, I don't know why people would need to reveal they're selling their stuff for an iPhone, that would encourage me to not buy their stuff so they CAN'T afford one and I'll be one person closer to getting one.. hehe i know thats mean, but its Social Darwinism at its best


i am selling the nokia 8801 (unlocked) because i am planing to buy the iphone.
it is 6 months old with the box and manual

Recieved this IPOD, but already have an older generation and wanting to save up for the IPhone..

Sidekick 3.. only a few scratches.. selling it to get Iphone..
So many ringtones..
Downloaded 3+ games..

This iPod is in perfect condition. I have kept it well protected and there is not one scratch on it. I am selling to save up for an iPhone

Barely used, I've only had it two months. Purchased it brand new. I have two batteries, USB Cable, external battery charger. In perfect condition, no scratches, dents, or any damage. Going back to old phone and waiting for the iPhone

I am selling my nextel blackberry 7100 phone. I am selling it to switch to the new Iphone to go on sale on June 29 with Cingular

This unit has only been used once. I bought it to get into podcasting, but I don't have the time for it. This unit works well with Windows and Mac.
I need to get rid of this unit soon, need the money to buy an iPhone :D



Ahhhh that was fun=)

I'm out in Folsom, and I've been debating my launch-day plan for a while. I have the afternoon off, so I'll be prepared to hop in line should one exist.

I scoped out the Folsom Cingular at the Broadstone / East Bidwell complex, and all they have up for signage right now are a couple iPhone banners. I did not see the full-sized video mock-up I have been hearing about.

I have not yet been by the Citrus Heights location on Sunrise next to the FedEx Kinkos yet. I think they do good business there and so they would get a significant allocation of iPhones.

Anyhoo, glad to see I'm not the only Sac area fanboy. I'm really not anticipating too much iPhone-mania here in Sac, but I could be wrong... Maybe at the Arden Apple Store, but I'll be avoiding that location for sure. Hit me up and I'm down to meet up with y'all on launch day.

Any thoughts on which stores will have lots of iPhones and few campers? I live in Citrus Heights, and the store near Sunrise Mall always seems crowded.
I work in Folsom, and I just checked out the Broadstone location, and it seems to be a larger store with fewer people. At least there wasn't a wait like in Citrus Heights. SO... can anyone suggest a better store. Placerville, perhaps?? :)

I'll probably swing by Broadstone around 2pm and then by Citrus Heights right after just to scope them both out. I would be quite surprised to see any large number of campers at either location.

IIRC, the AT&T store in the mall is just a franchise - so no iPhones there.
...The store near Kinkos mentioned earlier is however, so that may be your best bet.

I just seems like every time I need something over at the store by Kinko's I have to get a number and wait. At broadstone, I walked in and was offered help right away. I'll be checking back here for info on the lines at other stores so please post!!!

Is there an apple store inside the Galleria? Or is there only one inside Arden?

Hell, worse comes to worse you could always drive to Fairfield if there's one in the Westfield shopping center there. I've been there a few times but I can't remember if there's an Apple store inside there.

Ah, ok. Yeah I'm not expecting the iPhone to sell out here either but you never know. There's close to 1.5 million people I think living in this metro area so there's gotta be enough diehard people to pick this up ;)

Unfortunately I'm going camping starting Friday all the way until Sunday so I won't even be able to read up on first impressions. But if everything turns out OK and this thing is a hit, then I'll definitely pick one up next week.

Wow, this thread really picked up since the first couple posts I read. I am definitely going to the one across from galleria now. I actually went in there today and asked about getting some power from inside via extension cord, I'd like to bring a big TV and a 360 for games and movies. Manager wasn't in though, so no answer on that yet. I plan on stopping by thursday evening just in case, and I'll be checking throughout the night in case a line starts to form.

If we plan on getting together maybe we should trade email addresses so we can notify each other if we see a line forming earlier than expected.

As for your questions:
I'll be checking for a line starting the day before in the afternoon, and if I feel paranoid enough I may just start it myself. Also, if I get the go ahead to use an extension cord to get power from inside, I'll pretty much have to be there at the closing time on thursday to get that set up.

I'm bringing:
pillows (in case a night operation is at hand)
Folding chair
my macbook and DVDs (possibly my TV and 360 should the power be available) (Also, I wonder if AT&T has free wifi at their stores....can someone confirm? I may test that tomorrow after work.)
PSP
Stuff to read
Zune (yeah yeah, so I lost my iPod and I'm a Halo fan...you can rail on me Friday in person, lol)
A cooler with lots of water and cold drinks
Snacks of some kind
That's all I got at the moment.

I really hope it's not that bad here in roseville. I get paranoid about that every-time something like this happens, 360 Launch, Black Friday, PS2. I've bee lucky so far. It better not run out on me now.

They've set up the cones marking off where the line will be. It will be on the side of the store facing REI. So that means the sun will be on us all day.

I stopped at wal-mart and picked up an EZ-UP for some shade.

Still no manager available today to get an answer on power. I got the store number and was told an assistant manager will be in tomorrow though, so I'll try to call him then.

Further-more, Who's down for some pizza? was thinking of just ordering in food all day, if i can get it offa work. any who, let me know whats up...

Now, brace yourselves for some AWESOME BREAKING NEWS!

Braced?

I got POWER!!!!!!!!!!

The dude that (I think) runs the Wine Merchant next door was super cool when I asked him about it and said he didn't think it would be a problem. I've gathered 4 long extension cords that should make the run nicely. So my plan at this point is to head over there at about 4ish on thursday and get us hooked up and run the cord around back. I won't start a line if there isn't one already.

So anyway, big thanks are going to go to the Wine Guy, I'll probably get a few bottles from him friday night and I'm going to get a thank you card.

I'll have a power strip for my gear, and if anyone has anything they want to plug in, I might have some extra plugs, but you might want to bring another just in case.

No line at Broadstone as of ~4:50pm today. There are ropes marking off a spot, tho. Looked kinda like a security guy in front of the door to the back room. Could just be my imagination:)

Citrus Heights: No line either (5:30) - I didn't check inside.

Why is the Galleria so popular? I'm sure it doesn't have anything to do with the big screen tv.... Good luck all!

the line at the apple store in arden fair mall is not too long about 15 of us here. seems like some of the people are just here hanging with friends. So i am thinking that maybe 10 iphone will be sold in this group. people should come on down the mall security is letting us line up right at apples door. and the ropes lead straight to the door it is totally blocked by the ropes. there does not seem to be a way for customers to get into the store in the morning. Hmmmm maybe us that wait in line over night will get to purchase a phone in the morning. I would be so freakin happy. :-)

As you know we're doing it big here across from the Roseville Galleria- Halo tournaments on a 42" plasma, air mattresses, fans, it's essentially a party in front of the AT&T store.
I'd say anyone thinking about it could come tomorrow morning and easily get an iPhone- however don't quote me on that. I'd say by 4 or so we'll have enough to sell out- but then again I could easily be wrong. I'll post back later.

I might go to the Citrus Heights or Douglas store instead if the line isn't too bad there.

There's a store near Natomas - Truxel Road. Maybe that store won't be too busy, but it is a bit far. I'll check the lines in the morning to see how they are.

Good morning all! Wow, if you weren't with us last night, you missed all the fun! Allow me to sum it up:

Many drinking
1 harassing truck making multiple passes
1 thrown beer bottle
1 broken beer bottle
1 shouty confrontation
4 police officers
1 arrest, almost 2
1 overtime in an epic Madden game
1 viewing of Serenity in HD
3 hours of sleep

But dont forget... busier = more sales = larger iPhone allocation. Or one would assume...
