I just might have to. It is the closest store to me. But will probably have mine delivered.

Do you guys think this store will have a long line? Never been there on a launch day...

I'm sure it will be outrageous but good luck to everyone haha. I'm in Tucson, I'll be waiting at home for mine to be delivered.

The store is pretty big, and it gets really warm in there in the summer (at least until they added shading and fixed the HVACs). I went by there today to confirm my order, they expect pretty big lines (one for reserved, one for walk-ins) but if you have a confirmed reservation, you should have no problem getting your phone. The only question would be how long it would take. I am getting there before 7 AM, but just so I could wait in line in the morning instead of the hotter late afternoon. I have to be at work at 9, hoping it will take less than two hours....

Im with you at midnight! Me my girlfriend and maybe a couple of friends are planning to show up at midnight, but I might consider 3AM or 5AM depending on how crazy it is. Anyone know how much stock this store is getting? I have 2 iPhones on my family plan will I be able to get upgraded for both? Just seeing if anyone knows.

If you do end up checking it out at midnight can you post back to see if you were allowed to start lining up???If so let us know if there are any other people waiting.....As a last resort i do know the bar next door closes at 2 o' clock lol we can always wait there until they close and just wonder off to the apple store ;)

I just cruised past and there's nobody in line. I sure hope that 3AM thing is accurate. Serious negative karma for talking **** to fellow MacRumorers.

I'm probably gonna go there around 3AM; I have to go to work so I wanna be out of there before 10, ideally.

I went there this afternoon at well. 3AM to start lining up and there was 1 cop out in front. Ill be there around 2:30/3:00, hopefully the walk in line isnt ridiculous.

You said your gf was in line? Did she say how many people were there already? I drove by 45 min ago and about 10 people but no real line. Does everyone think they will have stock for the public? Called today and they couldn't confirm.

Just got another update! They said they are lining up on the other side of the "street" dont know what that means, but when midnight hits they are migrating that line to the apple store. I will let you all know if anything changes. Don't know how many people yet.

Does anyone know if Scottsdale still has iPhones?

Arrived at SQ at about 6 AM, my place in the reserved line was around to the front of the building facing Scottsdale Rd. -Store opened on time, had my iPhone 4 in my hand by 8:15, not bad! The non-reserved line went all the way down Scottsdale Rd. to nearly Butherus. They were letting in 1 non-reserved buyer for every 10 reserved buyers. They seemed to have plenty of phones, but people were showing up and getting in the reserved line constantly- that line had extended beyond where I started by the time I left.

btw- the worst part of waiting in line was the section along the north side of the building- the steel sides were reflecting light and heat, and it was getting very hot in there, even before 7 AM.

The phone itself? Mahvelous!!!
