I am not sure...I am curious to see. I am definetly going to the Green Hills location, however...it seems like you can activate it pretty easily. I am so excited, I cannot even wait.

I don't expect that many either (hope not anyway). Speakin' of news stories, check out today's business section in the Tennessean, I'm listed in the article about the iphone! How SAD is that?!! :o

Very nice mention! Maybe I will see you at Green Hills. What time are you making your first "drive-by"?

I'm pretty sure the mall opens at 7am for Mall Walkers. Most of the stores open around 9 or 10am.

I plan on going by there after work, so I'll be there around 5.

Good luck to everyone in Nashville tomorrow! I will be at the Green Hills store in the morning. Anyone else decide on their plans yet?

I decided not to go to Green Hills last night, turns out there's like 75 people or so down there as of 6:00 this morning. I'm at the ATT store in Madison, and I'm 4th of a total of 4 people in line.
Good luck!

Any reports from that AT&T store? As much as I'd prefer to go to Green Hills, I know that is where most people are going to gravitate... that or Cool Springs.

Nic, what does the line look like now?

I have missed so much work this week with other things, I can't really justify leaving for the iPhone.

Stupid dentist!!!! I will be leaving straight after work, so I should be there around 5pm. How's the line?

nicshelbs
Jun 29, 2007, 11:18 AM
By just looking and guessing, I believe the line is around 60 or 70, the line runs from the front of the Apple store to J. Crew.

Just a heads up Kitty...you should really leave work alittle early...at 5pm, its just gonna go crazy

I'm going to ask to leave after the afternoon mail run - around 2. That way, if there is anything that needs to be done, I can take care of it.

I've been twitching all day. It's creeping by like molasses in winter.

Mall shoppers can't believe what is happening...they are taking pictures, staring, just going insane...

I did confirm with an Apple employee that the store will close at 2pm and reopen at 6pm...so that they have time to lay out accessories and the iphones.

going to swing by the house and grab a foldable chair and join the line...I am actually a little surprised that Nashville has shown up for this!

Line is now past J. Crew

Nash....def. bring a chair, these floors look really hard

So, you think 75 people now?

nicshelbs
Jun 29, 2007, 11:53 AM
Regardless....im thinking its gonna take 3 mins to completely check out a person when they are purchasing the iPhone. There is prolly 3 registers...so doing the math...they max they could sell tonight is 1,080. (factoring in they are staying open till midnight and everything runs smoothly

recall that at high traffic times, like Christmas, they run mobile registers, so, I would expect 8 to 10 registers.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was 8-10 registers.

News crews have started to set up

Bravo to Apple Nashville for getting that task done so easily! I was in line past Abercrombie and got out at 7 PM, literally, the easiest purchase ever. Quite impressed. And my phone is activated and Ive already used it. I love it.
