i will be at the greenhills apple. :D:D Do we know what time the launch will be??? will it be at opening? or will it be at 6pm as before?

Edit: reading some other things it looks as if it is the 6pm launch as before.

In any case i will probably be sporting either my Midnight Blue XPS M1530 and/or my macbook pro Which has a griffin sticker on it from last year when griffin gave those of us waiting in line a goodie bag. I cant wait!!!

I am planning to be at the Apple Store in Green Hills. Unless of course I decide to forgo the fanfare and visit a secret AT&T store with no line instead.

I'm still thinking that it's going to be like the initial release and there will be plenty for latecomers. Hence why I'll probably be showing up around seven to pick mine up. That and I'll have to drag the person who's upgrade I'll be using along with me! :D:apple:

I'll be getting off work downtown around 5 or a little before... I live in Clarksville so here's the problem: get the iPhone in Nashville while I'm there, OR head back to Clarksville where it will probably be less busy?? (this is of course assuming launch is at 6pm)
:(:confused::eek:

I'll be there, 4:30pm likely.

I need to figure out how to:

1. Buy a 3G iPhone
2. Activate it on our enterprise AT&T wireless account
3. Port my number from Verizon

Ugh. Doesn't sound fun.

i'll probably be heading straight there after my senior pictures in the morning. seeing as my iPhone's screen cracked in an unfortunate accident, I am very anxious to get the 3g

my friend is ranked above AT&T store manager and he said the word is as of now to open the AT&T stores at 8AM that is early and unusual time to open the stores....


I will be there very early!!!!

I made a thread for the Cool Springs area, to no avail, as of yet. I see most of ya'll are heading to Green Hills. What kind of lines are you guys expecting? I'm trying to figure out when to show up.:apple:

I get of work around 4:15-4:30 Thursday and if I see people in line I'll go grab, a book, a chair, and a pillow and post up. For work's sake I hope that's not what happens.:apple:

I was told by an employee at the AT&T store in Cool Springs that they had a line of at least a hundred people. The store only had 45 phones....

Tom Sawyer
Jul 8, 2008, 08:11 AM
Well, I think the :apple: store will be it for me. I'm just trying to decide on what time to get there.... since they open at 8:00 AM, it opens up an "on the way to work" stop...:D

People keep trickling in...Getting close to 30 people, I was told that last year they had 45 phones and about 175 people in line. The manager told us the kiosk at the mall would have some too.

We've been polling everyone on what they are going to get. So far the majority is thinking 8gig, me and a handful of others are getting the White 16g jumpoffs...Just had two more show up.

Honestly, this makes me kind of happy that I'm not in Nashville (where I live) right now. It's not as big of a deal here in small city Wisconsin, and I just have to hope the store gets a fair amount of iPhones...

What's the AT&T store across from the mall in Green Hills like? People waiting there, too? Are people waiting in the mall inside or outside the front door, as far as for the Apple Store?

Jul 11, 2008, 02:46 AM

Basically everyone here wants the 16gb White iPhone

I went ahead and reserved it at my local AT&T store. They said my card would be charged when it was shipped...

... I'm $499 + tax poorer, so it's ON THE WAY~!!!!!!!!111111one11111!!!!!

Ended up deciding not to go for the 3G for now and aparently... it seems I have angered the Apple Gods. My iPhone died on me Saturday. Was listening to some tunes.. .and just... wham! Completely dead, no response, no response when on charger.... Toast! Totally sucks. :mad:

Mine is listed as shipped and on the FedEx truck in Nashville. I expect that happy call from the AT&T store any hour now, but I have a question for you guys...

... does it store data as fast as the iPod Classic or 5.5G, or as slowly as the iPod Touch?

Good news... as it turns out my iPhone was 2 weeks before warranty expiration! So they took care of me at the store and gave me a new (refurb I'm sure) iPhone (2G of course). Needless to say, big relief. I am thinking of just placing an order at AT&T for the 3G, these apps that hit the Internet are making me want/need 3G. There still to this day seem to be lines forming every morning. :eek:
