Can't you go to the AT&T store in the Gables? :D But that's okay, IDK if I'll actually be getting it on July 11th, if at all. My current iPhone works pretty well, hm?

I'm gonna go to them all! Because by the time my fat ass gets up, most of them will probably be depleted of their stock! LOL The Galleria is actually where I ended up getting mine on launch day last year (wanted the 8 GB) after hitting up the Apple Store in Aventura, The Falls, Boca Town Center and about 5 other Cingular stores across Palm Beach, Dade and Broward County!

I'll also be going to the Falls. Thats where I made the line for the first iPhone and ill be making it again for the second one.
Except ill try to be there a bit earlier so I can get in faster. See ya there! ;)

For those going to the Falls: Do you guys expect the line to be as big as last time or less? Some have said that it might not be as "big" as the first iPhone launch but I think its going to be just as huge maybe even bigger now that they lowered the prices to satisfy those who couldn't buy it last time.
The iphone, lower price, more features.....what do you think? :)

i asked today and one of the guys at the genius bar thinks it'll be the same.

Last year I went to The Falls the day after the iPhone was released, at around 11:30am, walked right in, bought the phone, and left, it all took me no longer than 15 minutes...

I think im going to be doing the same this year around.

I dont know =/ I was in California last year when it came out, and got it back there in cali :]
but im assuming it will be bad at both, but i'd prefer to buy it at the Apple store....

Well, I went to an Apple store to buy my iphone and the line was pretty long. A friend of mine went to the At&t store in Kendall and said the line wasnt short there either. Id go to the Apple store just because of the experience.
Good luck! :)

Edit:

** Eight more days!!! !!! !!! I keep looking at that darn countdown widget and it drives me nuts.

Jul 4, 2008, 12:43 PM
:D My main concern is going to an Apple store and having to wait there much longer than an ATT store due to the fact that they have to activate the phone before you leave.

Apple stores HAVE NEVER activated for ATT as this will be the 1st Time...It is very different from the first time with the Original IPhone a year ago where it was grab and go... then activate at home via Itunes....

I forsee a very long day.....Anyone agrees?? Comments???:confused:

Where is everyone planning to go? Let's get together and do a potluck !!:)

Hey! that sounds like a great idea..! like the topic says :) we are waiting at the Falls... :] I can't wait... if apple opens around 8am which is most likely i will be there july 10th around 10-11pm... :]

Jul 5, 2008, 12:57 PM
Yea, its best to arrive yearly. The earlier your in the earlier your out.
I dont think that the Falls will have any problem with people lining up at the Apple store a little earlier right?
Not the day before obviously but maybe a few hours? Hmmm...

LARQ1
Jul 5, 2008, 10:57 PM
I went to the ATT Store today and was told that they dont know the amount of phones that are going to be available for the sale on Friday. I recommend everyone to go to the ATT Store beforehand and make sure that everything is clear so that you can buy your IPhone when you decide.
As per the store manager, the ATT Reps that usually work in the Kiosks at the different malls will be at the different Apple stores helping out with the Activations on Friday.:)

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE !!!!:D

i hope the Falls security wont have a problem w/ us arriving early for the iphone.. i mean come on!

but i will be scoping out the place around 11-ishpm.. on the 10th, or around midnight to see whats going on w/ the line situation, and the minute i catch a crowd or people there i will be set in line... or hell me and my friend might even form our own line if we are there first (which is doubtful)
but i will like to be there early so i can just get it in the store activate it , and go home ! :]

I'm planning to go to the falls as well.

What I'm going to do is get up at around 5:30 or so... get there around 6:30-7... and i'm hoping that nobody's there yet. :3

if we have to wait till 6pm... then i'll wait outside :D
i'll bring someone to talk to.

JZ Wire
Jul 7, 2008, 07:49 AM
Four more days!!! So close yet so far...

SModher: Sounds pretty much what I was planning on doing. Hopefully we won't see too many people waiting at that time. Then again, never underestimate the power of the iphone. ;)

Ricanloveee: That's a good plan. If you see people lining up the day before and if you get a chance could you post here and give us an early warning? That's if security allows people to stay there after hours but even if they don't I hope they do allow us to get in line early in the morning before everything opens up.

Oh and for those who don't know already, an Apple store will be opening at DadeLand Mall. :D Unfortunately it will not be in time for the iPhone launch.

Hello Guys:

Hope everything is well with everyone, and getting your "IPhone 3G Game Plan" ready for Friday...I say we all dress with a Red Shirt / Polo so that we can recognize each other. What do you think???

When is everyone showing up?? I am planning to be there around 2-3am...What about all of you?

JJV
Jul 7, 2008, 03:36 PM

I wasn't at the falls last year, because I didn't live in miami at the time... but I expect the line to get busy around 2am... or maybe even earlier...!

I'm not too sure you just gotta scope the place out- but i'll be there around 12midnight or 1am...

I'll be wearing a RED TEE shirt :]]

Yup! I always said they needed one there. A bit after you pass Sharper Image they had a section covered up and it read "Apple".
As for wearing red, im not sure if I have a red shirt but ill look so I can fit in with the group hehe. Ill be getting there around 6am-ish so I wont be left too far behind. :)

Hey JJV, would you happen to live in or near Horse Country?

Ill be there just about btwn you guys, maybe we should plan to all go at the same time? hehe. Searching for red T as well. :)

A friend of mine lives in Country Walk so ive been in there a few times. Im in Horse Country-WoodGate. If At&t is opening at 8am im guessing so will Apple so its best to be there earlier. Ill look out for the red shirts and see you all there.

I dont go there too often but when I can. Ive been with At&t for a while so I dont think I need to go to their store. I think its mostly for new users just to make sure everything is in order. Credit check, number portability, those kinda things you want to get out of the way to make sure you can get the iphone.

Ive been with AT&T since they were Bellsouth Mobility, so its been quite a number of years..... Larq, awesome to hear your from PR as well... Mayaguez born here, raised in MIA. JZ, Im planning on getting there around the same time, 2-3, so we should try to meet up there. Im gonna try to contact the store or the falls, and try to get info. Keep you guys posted.

Almost there! 3 more days.

I was thinking the same thing Ricanloveee. With my luck ill go up to someone wearing a red shirt and mention Macrumors and they wont know what im talking about or thinking: "Who the hell is this guy?"
Well, I think all of us if not most are going early so that should help since there wont be too many people...I hope.

Rican and others who will be there the day before: Are you sure that the Falls will let you stay in the mall? Maybe we should call to be certain? I was just thinking maybe I could go even earlier but im not sure what the Falls will allow.

I'm not too sure, I don't see why they wouldn't allow us... ??? I mean they should expect it, and the entire mall is outdoors, so it's not like people can't walk through randomly.... Hmm

Can I come too????

I have like 3 red shirts. ;)

I just found this forum. (Orig iphone owner bought on the 3rd day it went on sale)

I have a buddy that works at a mac store. They really are not telling them much. They didn't even know about the 8am thing till yesterday.

I was thinking about leaving my house 'round 5:15 now I am thinking 4.

I normally wouldn't care but right after I am done at Apple I am getting in my car and driving to a DaveM concert in WestPalm.

Its going to be a LoooOOooong day.

Morning Guys! Sounds like we are getting the group a little larger. Still thinking about the TOA on Friday. Still searching around for a red T. Actually, that was my same thought lastnite, what happens if someone else is wearing red..... lol, pretty weird. Ill try to contact the store or mall for info, but as it was posted here, alot of associates dont know very much info.
Hopefully, we wont be in for a long day.... and all goes smoothly. :)

Jeejeebu's link will show you which ATT Stores will be selling the iPhone. Really, it's like last launch, the "main" stores. Country Walk will have them, I spoke with Matt and he doesn't have a number but "expects" 30 phones a day upto the release. I'm going to be going at maybe 3 or 4 am to wait around.

Country Walk will have them, I spoke with Matt and he doesn't have a number but "expects" 30 phones a day upto the release. I'm going to be going at maybe 3 or 4 am to wait around.

Thanks BB n Jee.... Im thinking on around the same time as well. I think Im pretty iReady! Backed up current iPhone, checked upgrade status.... So no need to go in to the store for anything else, right?

jeejeebu
Jul 8, 2008, 11:50 AM
I think I'm going to go into the AT&T store on Washington tonight and get all iReadied and see if they know how many phones they are getting and if they are expecting line ups to start early. Not sure if they would know or not, but I figure a place where my credit check has already gone through and the people are used to signing up new customers will go faster than the Apple store no matter what. (I am not an early adopter and decided to wait for 2.0 so I don't have to worry about upgrade status or anything.)

:eek:

just an idea...

if The Falls security is really going to enforce that couldn't we organize our own line along the sidewalk along the parking lot, you know by Fridays. and 1/2 hour to an hour before we walk the line down to the store.

There are never real issues with day after Thanksgiving sales and Christmas time with people waiting outside of stores for Wii's and Tickle Me Elmo's etc

any other suggestions?

JJV
Jul 8, 2008, 01:01 PM
Yeah, I was thinking about the same thing. I wonder if ATT will be faster, since this will be a first for the Apple staff. Also, I wonder if ATT will have the same amount of phones on hand as an apple store. Just a question, is a credit check required for current AT&T customers as well? Just wondering, cause if it is I would like to go to the store prior.

jeejeebu
Jul 8, 2008, 01:07 PM
I doubt current customers need a credit check. But here (http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/specials/en/iReady_checklist.pdf) is the PDF ATT put together to make sure you are iReady.

JJV
Jul 8, 2008, 01:21 PM
Cool! Thanks Jee! Just checked it out, and from what it states for Current Customer, it doesnt show it, shows only for new customers.... so it seems Im iReady to go. Thanks for that. :)

I had a feeling that the Falls wasnt going to let anyone line up before but that doesnt mean we cant get there early and make our own line outside of the mall. JJ, I think the credit check is just for new customers if you are already with At&t you should be fine.
Well, let me know what you guys are going to do. I guess I can still arrive early and wait in the parking lot or something. You can catch me on AIM SN - jonniewlker.

I agree. We should all park somewhere designated and still wear the red shirts. LOL. But what entrance is closer to apple? The one by tgi Fridays??

desiknow
Jul 8, 2008, 07:34 PM
yeah guys,

I think we should park in front of Fridays in the open section ( not the garage )

and just sit along the side walk, in line.
I think the more visible we are when others arive closer to 6am and 7am the less of a problem will occur with ones showing up later and trying to walk up to the door. You know how us Miami Latin can be...:D
"I didn't see any signs!" "who says I have to stand in this line" etc...
So if people pull-up they can see all the cars in the same area and a line that has already formed even if they walk up through the section by the theater.

I have just been a part of too may black fridays ( the day after thanksgiving )
go bad, especially if the store is not providing support.


Sorry if I am being cheesy.

JJV
Jul 8, 2008, 07:42 PM

Yes, this sounds perfect, we all should wear the red shirts and park around TGI fridays... :] and if no one notices anyone we can just chill outside of our cars to recognize one another..

I'd really like to meet up with a lot of others anticipating the new iPhone, but I wonder if it would be faster to just go to the AT&T store at 8279 West Flagler St.
This model of the iPhone is being released on my birthday and I got the day off, so I don't really want to spend it waiting half the day for this phone.
I also have to figure out how to transfer my old phone number from Verizon to AT&T without canceling the plan and changing the number on the Verizon phone.
I wonder how early most people are going to show up. No one is planning an overnight wait are they?

I think going to an AT&T store, you take the risk of them running out, and the lines.. =/

at least at the falls we all have an idea of when we can go and scope out the area etc...

Also AT&T seems like they'd catch you with all their B.S & give you a harder time activating it since this is Apple's first time doing an in-store activation...

I agree with Rican. You will have a lot better luck with Apple as far as getting the iphone. Anyway Apple always has the little extras (the iphone bag) that At&t doesnt.
I think the At&t store might go slower because thats where a lot of the new customers will go to set up their plans/phone.

Yeah of course, especially the feel of it.. AT&T is just like " Hi , you want an iphone.. Kay... sign a contract, do this u have these fees' etc... Blah blah here you go... kay have fun... enjoy being stuck with us"..

Alright alright, You guys are right about the excitement, but as for availability for the phone. I did plan on going to the AT&T store before it opens, so I'm sure to get an iPhone. The drive to The Falls though would mean 20 minutes on the road for me. Unlike the At&t store which is only about 7 minutes away.

I can't decide now, it would be tons of fun to meet up with everyone waiting, although I don't own a red shirt. :(

Go to the Apple store!!! hint Hint

I have an At&t practically at the corner of my house but I am still going to the Falls even if its farther but its the experience that you get which counts. At least for me anyway but I think you'll enjoy it more than the At&t store for reasons that Rican already said.

You all are making me think I should just do the Apple store. And the article that says Apple stores will only take 10 or 15 (I can't remember and can't be bothered to check) minutes to sign people up makes me think it will be just as fast, if not faster there. (I've signed up for phones a time or two before and it always takes at least half an hour to an hour.) I guess I'll drive by Lincoln Rd before heading to Washington and see what the line looks like. I was planning on going around 6:30-7 so I can walk the dog first, so I don't think I'd be first in line.

Anyone planning on getting one in Miami Beach? I'd rather avoid Lincoln Road, since I figure there will be more of a line at the Apple Store than any of the AT&T stores, but I don't know if the AT&T store on 41st St will be getting any. Are all of them?
I'm going to go to the one on south beach even though I'm 10 mins from the falls because I think it will be more of an event there and I'm going to take pictures for my apple blog. I mean there will be the early risers there like me and then some people stumbling from a club that will think they are waiting in line for some new exclusive club call apple?

Although from reading this thread it sounds like the falls is going to be pretty packed too, might have to swing by there to snap a few pics on my way to south beach.

HELLO ALL Wearing Red Shirts:

It seems that I won't be able to go to the Falls Apple store after all.
There is a glitch with my account showing "NO CONTRACT" and at the same time it is showing NO upgrade elegibility...so I can only do this in a Corporate ATT Store, in person. My account is also a Business Account so I would be better off there.

Any ideas which ATT store will be better off on Friday morning?

Hope everyone has a Great time waiting!!!

CHEERS!!!

My thinking now is that I don't have an iPhone yet, and waiting in line is going to suck, so I might as well go to a line where the party is, so Lincoln Road it is.

I was wondering the same thing. If I lived close I would have checked but ill have to wait till tomorrow. I cant believe its finally here. I should be there by 5am so ill see you all then.
On a side note, has anyone downloaded any apps yet? I already have more than 50 apps so ill have plenty to test/play with when I get my new iPhone.
Monkeyball, AIM, Enigmo, IGN, Ebay, SnapmyLife, NetNewsWire, Pandora Radio, Wrll, Reqall, Epocrates Rx, are just some ive already download.

You bet. I am super ready. :D I even got my red shirt finally.
I didn't have one but as I was running errands and I was near by the mall so I just went in and bought a red shirt.
I didnt want anything too loud just a simple shirt. Anyway, the App store is definitely up and running and they have lots of apps and many for free.
All we need now is for Apple to release that darn 2.0 software update!!! Probably wont come till tomorrow though. :confused:

I swung by 3 ATT stores this morning and all the lines were too long for me to wait given that activation would be required. 35 or so people in Doral, 40 or so people near Mall of the Americas, and then probably over 100 in Coral Gables.

Ya we were in line at the 88th and US1 AT&T Store and got there around 8:30am. We were pretty far back in a long line and around 10am a guy came out of the store to let us know they only had 8GB left and some White 16GB, apparently the 16GB Blacks were sold quickly (naturally).

We went to the Apple Store @ the Falls and the line was massive! I checked on here thru my iPhone to see that there was all the activation drama and we left, we're gonna try and see if they still have some this afternoon if not we'll try our luck tomorrow.

Good luck to anyone out there in line!!!

We tried the Gables AT&T store this morning and the line was at least a hundred thick and figured there wouldn't be enough 16GB for all those people. If anyone hears an update from the falls let us know, I will try and go this afternoon if they still have some stock of 16GBs

I just went to the falls and there is at least 450 or 500 people there, the line does not move, and inside the store doesn't seem to be a lot of activation stations. Besides the activation problems, I think that there are very few activation stations in stores, I believe that Apple must wave their in-store activation plans in order to restore peace and order. We should start emailing people at Apple with this request.

I just imagined myself going up to someone wearing red and talking to them, realizing they weren't from the forums.

Wouldn't that be embarrassing? xD

I just went to the falls and there is at least 450 or 500 people there, the line does not move, and inside the store doesn't seem to be a lot of activation stations. Besides the activation problems, I think that there are very few activation stations in stores, I believe that Apple must wave their in-store activation plans in order to restore peace and order. We should start emailing people at Apple with this request.

The Lincoln Road store had a bunch of people handling requests. I didn't count, but it was a lot. And by the time I got in the store, the Apple people had figured out what they were doing and were able to process people pretty quick. But then iTunes went down, so it probably got worse. Though I just took mine home to wait rather than waiting there.

Wait a minute, that sounds odd on Apple's part. You were turned away from buying an iPhone even though you're an authorized user? What exactly happened?

i just went by 2 att stores which both had iphones and both had a line that was in the process of selling out. I was 2 or 3 people short of getting one at both places. The Doral store only had 8GB ones in their 2nd shipment. The Coral Gables store had both. oh well... i'll try again tomorrow.

I left the Apple store at the Falls a while ago and the line was already quite short. I asked and they said they had plenty of iphones.

Was it hot or what? Despite the heat I had a good time though. I met a lot of nice people most of which were members of Macrumors. I also wanted to thank Zector for all of your help. Thanks!
I hope everyone got the iphone they wanted, I know I did!
Ok, I need to go take a nap because I am dead tired. Catch you all later.

JZ, or anyone who might know...

Can you purchase an iPhone at the Apple Store if you're an authorized user but not the primary account holder? The account holder is my dad but i'm authorized, over 18 and have his SS #. Someone earlier posted not getting one due to that issue so I was curious since it was the first I heard of that. Thank you.

Short line and lots of phones? I guess I don't have to worry about going tonight to go get my girlfriend's phone. :x

It definitely was a lot of fun regardless of the bs, the fun is in the journey not the destination? ;)

I talk to an ATT rep on the phone and one at a the store and said that as long as you are an authorize user you should be able to get the iphone without the primary account holder.. They were sold out so they didn't check or anything..I'm not sure if this is happening only at the apple stores..

The apple said you CANNOT buy the iphone if you are NOT the primary account holder...my brother is the primary..and he lives in texas..but they said ATT ALLOWS if you are authorized...hope that helps...

hopefully i can change the setting online..and try again tomorrow..

update us on ATT stores that have iphones in stock please..thx

Hmm, im not sure about that one. You might want to call and ask the Apple store. Is it a family plan?

No, it's a regular plan only one line.

If you are an authorized user, u can get an iphone upgrade only if u had a previous one. if u are opening a new line than the primary has to be there. hope that helps

It was the least I can do. :D
Sorry I couldn't get in contact with you before I left. My phone battery on my Verizon phone died off, and I couldn't get my iPhone activated. Couldn't get in contact with you. I finally got it activated tonight though and I love it. Absolutely worth every penny and minute of waiting.

All organizational BS aside involving the piss poor decisions made by the Mall officials. I had a great time, and enjoyed meeting everyone that showed up. Thanks to everyone for that. :p

Oh god, got to The Falls again at about 10 and they barricaded all around the areas and entrances near the Apple Store, essentially "closing the mall" and not letting anyone else line up. I have to go again tomorrow morning so that my girlfriend can get her phone. I knew I should have bought it for her but she's still undecided on what color she wants ;/
