Yes you can upgrade at the apple store. you just need the last 4 digits of the social on the account and the billing zip code.

When the iPhone 3G came out, I got it at the AT&T store near the Hulen Mall and I was there the evening before it came out. I was 2nd in line. More people started showing up around 11 pm.

I will be there bright and early with a copy of my reservation in hand.

This will be my first launch so I was wondering how Apple usually handles it for those with "Reservations" and those without. Do they have different lines or what. I called the store but they were less than helpful.

Thanks!

I work at the chilis located across from the apple store, Im friends with several of the employees so I asked them. They told me that the line can not start forming until the close on the 23rd. But the assured me that the line would more thn likely start then. (which is at 8pm) I reserved mine so im for sure getting one. But my father wasn't as lucky, so he will be there too. Actually my whole family will be attending. There's something about being first in line at an apple launch that drives me crazy! Im probably going to get there around 10pm. :cool:

The AT&T store on on Bryant Irving didn't really care when the line started. When I got there back in 2008, there was a guy who was already in line for 24 hours. :eek:

Haha, i tried to pre order the phone at the AT&T off camp Bowie, but they said i couldn't use cash or debit card. So i went to apple. Seems like. I made the right choice because they are going to have 55 people working all day there! That means quick in and out :D I got to the AT&T store in 2008 at around 3 am and there were around 20 people in front of me!

I originally pre-ordered online through AT&T Premier with my Chase Visa Debit card and it went through. I canceled my order though because the Premier Customer Support told me that my phone will be shipping after the 24th.

No, I have done this every year at the Apple store, but I am the primary account holder, I've witnessed customers be turned away unless the primary account holder is with them. If you want to do an upgrade switching lines on a family plan, you can still buy the phone at Apple, then go to the ATT store and switch the lines, I've done that, too. ATT isn't very busy after they run out of phones! Caveat: they may charge you an extra $18 bucks.

For instance, 3G launch I had four lines, bought 2 phones on my upgrade eligible lines and activated at Apple. Went across the street to ATT, switched one of the new phones to a different line.

You guys have fun storming the castle, I'll be at Southlake.

As far as I know, you would be better off with no cash. Apple hasn't taken cash in a long time for iPhones. The work around in the store was usually to go put it on a gift card and swipe the card, but for launches we almost never take cash. Please try to not have cash.

I'll get back to you on the 8pm the night before thing. I don't know.

No outlets that I know of.

I was told by them that the line's couldn't start forming until the closed for business on the 23rd. Last time i was there, yesterday, i did not see any outlets outside of the place. Hopefully my ipad and iphone battery stay nice and charged. I will be using my ipad to talk on this forum and post pictures of the lines outside :)

I will be arriving with my 5 family members at 8pm, need 2 iphone 4's not preordered. So half of us will be in the preorder line and the other will be in the other line.

Should be fun storming the castle, dont remember who said that earlier but i like it :)

By 3pm there will deff not be a pre order line, but im sure the store will be busy from open to close, I def wanna go early because im sure that apple will sell out of cases in like an hour. Might even buy a few extra and put em up on ebay.

during the 3gs launch there was a line for a month. Yes you heard me right, a MONTH. I was there. I saw it. Everyday. So don't expect to get there at 3 and there be no line. The bigger question is, will we be sold out of non-preorder phones?

Illusion86
Jun 20, 2010, 04:50 PM
More than likely what will happen, is that apple will receive the phones from April (the fed ex driver) on wed morning. She's one of my regulars at chilis, she told me that she was going to have armed guards with her when she delivers them! But said it would be wed. They will know how many pre orders there was, and they will know how many available ones there will be. They will keep a count of the line at 5 am when they arrive, if the lines longer than the number of phones they have they will send people away or tell them they can pre order online. That's how it was at the 3GS release, and that's what angie (one of my friends that work at that apple store)

Hope it goes according to plan, it never does though! Lol

Guess i will be seeing all of you there :)

we don't know exact numbers of phones until they show up at the store. I do know that as you would expect, if you preordered a phone, you are guaranteed a phone will be there with your name on it for 24 hours. I didn't work today so I don't know the line policy yet. I'll try to find out details tomorrow.

Thanks dude! A few more questions:

1.) When people start lining up, will there be designated reservation/non-reservation lines or is it one line that gets separated in the morning?

2.) I read somewhere that some Apple stores were letting people in "two reservations for one walk-in". Are yall doing anything like this, or is the reservations line going first, followed by us stragglers?

3.) Do you know anything about your inventory yet?

4.) The phone gets activated in the store, right? Does our info from our old iPhone (texts, contacts, apps, etc) get transferred over at the store or do I do that when I get home from an iTunes backup?

1. Yes there will be a non reserve and a reserve line.

2. I've never heard anything about that. Probably a store by store senario and not a company wide order.

3. As per the email you were sent, we have phones for everyone who pre-ordered plus walk-ins.

4. Yes the phone is activated in the store just like any other day you were to buy an iphone. The only thing we can transfer in store is contacts. Everything else needs to be backed up/sync'd to your computer and transferred by your self at home. We don't have the ability (or are allowed to due to privacy concerns) transfer anything else besides contacts. You of course keep your old phone so that shouldn't be much of an issue.

Well, I've caved and will be going to University Park around 12 AM on Thursday morning. I'm hoping that a white iPhone 4 is available (since apparently some Walmarts are getting 1-2), but worse case I'll be getting a black one. I'm about 5'10" with sorta long blonde hair, and I'll be wearing and black Apple shirt. See you guys there!

4. Yes the phone is activated in the store just like any other day you were to buy an iphone. The only thing we can transfer in store is contacts. Everything else needs to be backed up/sync'd to your computer and transferred by your self at home. We don't have the ability (or are allowed to due to privacy concerns) transfer anything else besides contacts. You of course keep your old phone so that shouldn't be much of an issue.

This is assuming that the Apple servers and the AT&T servers don't crash, right?

Walmart will have 2 white ones?? oh i find that hard to believe.. a friend of mine from plano told me that his walmart location slipped and told him they will only have 5 black ones, so id be VERY surprised if they will carry white.

After your question I called the stonebriar mall where I am planning on going to get mine and they said I can only get 1. Which is BS because ever other event it has been 2 per person.

Edit: Just call the Knox Street store in Dallas and they confirmed there store will let you have 2 so maybe the people at Stonebriar are just been mean.

I don't think anyone is getting white ones. If they do I can see some people being very upset. I'm also getting nervous. Now that I think about that picture I took at SouthLake I wonder if those were 2 separate lines on each side of the door. The pre-order line and the first-come-first-serve line.

Hey guys. More answers to questions for you.

Yes they will have 2 lines. The land lord isn't allowing people to line up yet or else we would have lines by now. You can't line up until close, 8pm, wednesday night. Now if it doesn't look like your lining up, then how will they know ;)

We have no idea about white phones until we open the boxes on thursday. There is just no way to know and anyone who does know would certainly be fired for saying so on a forum.

I was told 2 phones per customer. That sounds about right seeing on how they even let you buy 2 iPads per customer on iPad launch.

Can't confirm pre order numbers but it was hundreds more than southlake.

There is hope afterall!!!! if you haven't made it here yet there is still a chance you'll get a phone afterall....come on down to the store!!

If anyone wants to get an iPhone and not have to wait online at the Apple store, drive 20 min west to the Walmart in Hudson Oaks. There are only three of of here right now. They are going for sale at 7:00 from what they say. There are 10 iPhones from what they say, and unsure of size.

Anyone got any estimates on how long it's gonna take per person?

Abyssgh0st
Jun 24, 2010, 06:06 AM
Heard 50:1 (reserved:non) ratio, so basically the entire reserve line will be through by 7:30-7:45. Then the non-reserves will stream in and be going until they run out of extras.

For reserves, I'd say a maximum of 5-8 minutes
per person. Non reserves I'd say 10-15 minutes, max.

I just left the Fort Worth store trying to pick up my reservation on my lunch break and was told that the wait time for reservations is 5 hrs. The line wrapped around the shopping center. The line didn't even look like it was moving, maybe a problem with activating the phones. I asked an employee and they said my reservation would only be held for today and they would stay open as long as people were in line.

I'm sorry you had to wait in line so long and for those of you walk ins who didn't get a phone please keep trying. We want everyone to get an iPhone 4 and we are doing the very best we can to move the lines along.
