I have mine reserved to pick up so I will be there early Thursday morning. I luckily got through with the iphone App Store. By the way did Victoria Gardens change there policy on the time people can start lining up? Last time for 3G they wouldn't let anyone line up until 6am so it was kind of a mad rush for the line to form.

Not sure, but I am assuming they will allow it this year... ipad people were allowed to line up.

yeah i was unfortunate to have waited at an at&t store for the 3g launch, and ended up being turned away because of there stupid policy... SO i drove to this victoria gardens location got there by about 8 and was all the way by the food court.... LOOOONG line... (still hoping for a white one :) )

So I just called the Apple Store and they said that there should be two lines for the reserve and walk in. They also said they don't know what time they are gonna allow people to start lining up. Though the mall doesn't allow camping out. So I'm gonna guess 6am like it was for the 3g.

I went to this store (Victoria Gardens) at closing and there was 100 people in that store... I could NOT imagine what it will look like on launch day! Since Victoria Gardens did NOT get my preorder (it is lost in outerspace somewhere :mad:) I decided to go to the Moreno Valley AT&T- FYI Beaumont and Calimesa folks! Spoke to the manager who said that arriving early, early morning is a good time and that they will have armed security in the parking lot... so I feel pretty safe since this by far is THE CRAZIEST THING I've ever did for an APPLE PRODUCT!!!!

Has anyone confirmed what time the mall will allow pople to line up? I want to get there like at 6. But if they can start earlier then I'll get there at 5:30. I already have my iPhone 4 reserved.

When I wanted to pick up my iPhone 2g on launch day I got there 30 minutes early and already there was a line of about 50 people. I hope I get a better spot this time.

I just called Victoria Gardens guest services and they said 6 is the earliest. And that it's up to security if they allow anything before that.

I am one of those who could not get through to order on the 15th so I hope I can get an extra phone in the non-preorder line.

So, anyone have any ideas for getting into Victoria Gardens? :confused: I asked security yesterday about their policy and they said they would be turning away anyone walking / driving in before 6am. I asked them if they had an orderly plan to reasonably handle the mass of people crossing the property line all at once, and the head of security that there is no written policy. The general consensus is that no one is allowed to be on the property (including surrounding parking lots) before 6 am.

The bad news is that I am alone and I have a recent foot operation and cannot walk fast :(. With everyone cruising around and testing the time limit to see when they will be challenged to leave versus when security finally capitulates... Will this be a mad rush for 300 cars to park? :eek:

The lines are pretty long for both! They have a cut off already for walk ins and had to turn a bunch away. I got there at 530 this morning for the reserve line and i didn't get my phone till 1020. There was still a long freaking line for reserve. I couldn't believe how many people there where! Just glad I'm home with my sweet phone now! All I have to say is that the display is amazing!

I was there about an hour ago. The reservation line then had to be 4+ hours. I came home. I'll try again this evening. I'm not waiting out there during the peak heat of the day.

Can't get through to call the store either. Just get a busy signal.

Five hour wait at Victoria Gardens. Five FREAKIN hours. I will NEVER do that again.

People were still showing up for both lines after 9.

All hell is gonna break loose when they finally stop the lines or run out.

People at the end of the reserved line got vouchers around 10 pm so we could come back tomorrow. Some stayed to try there luck.

Not for people with no reservations. That line was cut off. Supposedly only people with reservations will get it tomorrow, but they're probably lying.

That place was a mad house. Could have done without the clapping after each purchase too.

Very annoying that they let so many non-reserves in before the reserves too.

Jun 25, 2010, 08:49 AM
I was in line yesterday @ 5:45 pm and the line for reserves was crazy long. Got out with an iPhone @ 11 pm. That was 5+ hours :mad: . I will think twice about reserving and instead try home delivery in the future.

5 hours is nothing, went to the store on the night before last night at 12:00 am. people already lining up around 3:00 which they ain't suppose to do, but they can't do anything about it. finally got my phone the next day at 3 to 4 o'clock.

Got mine. Almost no line for reserves. Still a line for walk ins, but much shorter than yesterday. The walk in line didn't move at all while I was in the store for around 15-20 min.

So i went to the apple store in victoria yesterday without pre-ordering my phones bc we stupidly thought that there was going to be white ones at the store before apple did the big announcement that there wasn't going to be any...i got there about 4:30am and stood in line for about 18 hours i didn't get inside the store until 9:30pm and left there about 40 min later with my new iphones it was insane n i don't believe i will ever do it again lol.....

As bad as the line was for the AT&T launch, I'm curious to know how bad it will be for the Verizon launch.

I'm not driving 40 miles to see myself though!

Been a year since the hell that was standing in line at this store!

I remember walking out of the store at just about this time after getting my iPhone 4 and seeing that the line was even longer then than when I had gotten there 6 hours earlier!

Just letting anyone know, I was here at 9:30pm Thursday (10/13/11) and there were a few people already lining up. Victoria Gardens security said you are not allowed to loiter but what they did suggest (and this is talking to one of the guys in line) was that you can walk around Victoria Gardens, they just can't stay in line outside the store, so he said the people in line are going to take turns walking around while keeping track of whose been in line, etc. Have fun! I'm waiting for an unlocked iPhone 4S.

^ I thought Apple announced that the unlocked version won't be coming out until November.

I walked by here around seven on my way to the Yard House and I saw one guy in line wearing a hat and a backpack.

I'll be going :) .
I called and asked when we can line up and the Apple people had no idea other than they open at 8. I'm going to try to call the mall info desk to see if they know anything else. I know last year they had some big thing about not lining up until like 6 because they were doing stuff to the road in front of the store but I'm planning on going at like 4 just to see if they are letting people line up earlier this year. Hopefully they learned not to schedule road maintenance in front of the apple store on iPhone launch mornings :D
