I guess I will be there about 4 or so. I know they will have the phone and it should be a quick in and out kinda thing.

Quick and easy? How long does the in-store activation usually take? Seeing how we all have to activate in-store.

I am upgrading so I am hoping it wont be too bad..

I live on the east side, I could go to the 22nd and Broadway AT&T Store, but I am not sure what their supplies will be. :confused:

How was the line last year??

I went by the AT&T Store on 22and and Broadway today and they are unsure of how many they are getting. I am not sure if the AT&T stores know how many they are getting.:confused: He said the line was wrapped around to the Cold Stone Creamery.

La Encantada for me..

I was first in line for the initial launch last year at the AT&T store on Broadway & Wilmot.

I don't think I'm going to bother with launch day again!

Sadly we don't know what time the Apple Store will start selling. Soon we will know. I am wondering how busy it will be, now that the rate and plan pricing have been released. People are not very happy. That's ok though! LOL it will make sure I get one :D:p:D:p:cool:

I was about 6th in line at the AT&T store near Campbell and Fort Lowell last year for the iPhone launch. They ended up not even running out of phones. Biggest waste of time in my life... this year I think I'll wait for a couple of days for the crowds to die down and then stroll in without a line... But you guys can knock yourselves out this year ;):D

Come to think of it...Tucson shouldnt be TOO bad seeing how the University is out for the summer.

EDIT: I think im finally leaning towards the white one. I was pretty set on buying the black one up until today.

I hoping it wont be too bad. Since La Encantada is a nice outdoor shopping center, I am sure security will be aware that people will be lining up for an 8am lunch.

You do have a point. School is out for the summer.

:cool:

The white one does look cool!!The black one you will be able to see the smudges :(

I just hope they have some of the new case options available.

I am looking at Countourcase.com (http://www.contourcase.com)

Any other ideas?

Sadly both (Apple Store, and AT&T by Tucson Mall) are on the other side of town for me. I live on the East side . I have an AT&T store about a block away from me on 22and and Harrison. I wanted to go the Apple Store because

1. The local News might be there.
2. Just cooler to get it from an Apple Store.


May just check the line at the AT&T and then head over to La Encantada.

530-600@ La Encantada

I spoke with the (nameless) manager of the La Encantada store who told me the line starts at 5am, so don't come earlier unless you're going to wait in the car. :)

And yes, I'll still be there. Everyone should probably wear a sticky of who they are. ;)

The line was ok, however, they are still having issues with the iTunes server and we can't activate our phones.

I was first in line at the Broadway/Wilmot AT&T store last year.
Just "for the fun of it", got there at 8am and waited in the heat all day. No need to as I don't think they ran out of phones so those who got there at 6pm waited maybe 2 hours and got one anyway.

This year I decided to wait a week and try the Apple Store. I checked stock online and they were out on Thur & Fri (a week later). Friday night said they would be in stock on Sat (19th) so i went a bit early to get coffee at AJs and then over to the Apple Store to wait an hour until they opened. To my surprise, they were open early (not all the lights were on) and I waltzed right in and got Two - 16gb white ones, and was out of there in under 20 minutes.

Came home and sold our two 1st gen iPhones within a few hours for $300 EACH on CraigsList so that basically paid for the two new ones. :D

I don't think I'll wait in line like I did a year ago for anything again.
