I am hoping to be there but I won't know until they say something about the white iPhone. I might be holding off depending on the delay for white. If they push it back this might be the first iPhone launch I sleep through.

I've got an iphone 4 reserved at the Town Center for the release on the 24th. Unfortunately one of my friends wasn't lucky enough to make it through the site to reserve hers yesterday because of the apple site crashing all day.

It looks like she's going to have to show up early and try to get one on the "first come first serve" basis so we're thinking of getting there early before the 7am open time to get a good spot in line.

Has anybody camped out at the Town Center for any of the previous iPhone launches? How far ahead of store opening are people usually lining up? I've tried to look around and do some research and it looks like depending on store locations around the country there have been reports of people only needing to get there an hour or two in advance all the way to people waiting for days before release.

Like I said, just wondering if anybody had an idea of what the situation had looked like here in Jax for past iPhone launches and if anybody else here planned on heading out there early.....

Thanks in advance for the info

Hey Im in Jax and Ill be going to the Town Center Apple store. I have mine reserved as well but I will actually be waiting in the "non reserve" line in case they have white ones there. I haven't had an iPhone since I bought the original there on launch day. I waited 9 hours for the 6PM launch. This time you wont have to wait near as long but I wouldn't wait to get there right before the doors open. One thing I can say is that most people will be working so I dont think its going to be as crazy as if it launched at like 6PM.

I'm planning on getting there around 6am. I have to make a 1pm meeting at work so I really hope they are on top of things and get the reserved line down quickly.

Was anyone at this store for the 3GS launch?? Just wondering if 6am will land me a decent spot in line or if I should show up earlier than that!

I have a Black 32GB iPhone reserved but Ill be there early to see if they have a White one. If I hear leading up to it that there absolutely will not be White iPhones then I will just get there in the evening to pick mine up.

Well yeah you gotta expect ppl to be already to come some might have been sleeping over just to land a front door spot I didn't get to reserve mine so I'll have to be up front I want that phone and I'm not trying to wait another few weeks so they can get more in stock.

...I'm in Jax for two weeks visiting family (I grew up here). I called the Jax Beach ATT store to ask if they would have a stock of new iPhones for persons who had not pre-ordered. The answer: NO.

Are you all sure there will be stock set aside at your various local stores for people who are just walking in without reserved devices?

I tried to pre-order the phone today through Apple and in the breakdown of charges, it showed I would have to pay an $18.00 upgrade fee. (My two year contract expires July 16.) However, I had dialed the info number to ATT from my iPhone 3G and got the text reply that I qualified for the upgrade with the $18.00 upgrade fee WAIVED. I immediately stopped my pre-order. I'll wait until I'm back in NYC and I'll keep checking the local ATT and Apple stores until I can pick one up at the store.

Lining up in jax is pretty nice since there's really not that much of a crowd. I used to be stationed in may port and never saw any huge lines for the iPhone...one of the things I missed about the area lol

Jun 19, 2010, 03:50 AM
I think I'll shoot for around 6am also. I was lucky enough to get a pre-order thru. Hopefully I'll be able to be in and out by at least 8. I was there last year for the 3gs and I seem to remember the pre-order line going by pretty smoothly.

GeekLawyer
Jun 19, 2010, 08:37 AM
I'll be there. Last year I had my 3GS shipped and it was torture waiting around for FedEx all day.

So, reservation in hand, I'll be there... maybe around 6:30ish?

I have a red shirt I'll wear red on launch day. I'll be there camping out at 10 if anyone wants to join feel free to stop by we can keep each other company til the doors open. And I got the word from an apple worker they holding two lines and both will move at the same time.

Firespitter brought up a good point. Thieves, we ran in to a problem once waiting for opening night of Star Wars. And they way Jax has been lately, we may need to think of that.

Firespitter904
Jun 20, 2010, 01:54 PM
I know this doesn't concern the topic but if i jailbreak the iPhone to use 3g restricter so I can use facetime anytime you think that will work

There were police at the 3G launch, hopefully some security will be around. I'll probabl leave my purse at home and maybe a couple of us could walk out together. At that hour we should get parking in front of the stores. But no kidding, Jax feels like a war zone sometimes.

Firespitter904
Jun 20, 2010, 02:14 PM
That's true jax crime rate is crazy. Well I just hope to get my hands on a white iPhone but that's just a hope.

ian-frs
Jun 20, 2010, 08:42 PM
In theory yes the restrictor will allow FaceTime over 3G. Just need some programing updates. And there is no parking infront of the store till about 630. They block off the side streets. Going in groups would be a good idea but I have yet to see a problem and I was just there for the iPad launch.

CamXCollins
Jun 20, 2010, 08:57 PM
Do you have any idea what time someone should get to the Apple Store if they do not have a reservation and are simply hoping to get one at launch? I am hoping some of you may have experience with this from past launches.

Firespitter904
Jun 20, 2010, 09:23 PM
Really you can't compare this launch to any other cause it's done a lil different with the ordering and availability at a few dozen stores besides apple and AT&T so that may or may not take some of the tension off. Well they block the road until 6:30 but that doesn't stop from walking around til 6:30 just don't cross the the blocked off area til time.

CamXCollins
Jun 20, 2010, 09:28 PM
So they won't allow us to start forming lines until 6:30 in the morning on the 24th? Am I understanding you correctly? And if that is the case, what time would you recommend getting there?

Firespitter904
Jun 20, 2010, 09:39 PM
From what he's saying you can't park in front of the store til 6:30 so you can come earlier to stand in line before 6:30 if I'm understanding him correctly.

What time would do you think i should get there if i dont have a reservation?

ian-frs
Jun 20, 2010, 09:55 PM
Don't get your hopes up for white. But I am going to ask tomarrow if they will have extra inventory off the top of reserves for walk-ins tomarrow when I go in for my laptop. And if one or more of us meet up in line we can always hold spots so we can move cars when they let us park out front.

CamXCollins
Jun 20, 2010, 09:59 PM
I am not looking to get a white one, i would prefer a black. I am just curious at to what time i should get there if i dont have one reserved.

Firespitter904
Jun 21, 2010, 12:15 AM
I'd say check out the store around 3am but who knows lines might not be soo bad yeah right I think it's gonna be long with at least 900 preorders you might wanna come early cause obvious it's possibly gonna be 100-300 walk ins. That's just a figure but the preorders are about 900 got that from a apple worker I know from there.

ian-frs
Jun 21, 2010, 02:17 AM
Does your friend know if they have extras for walkins?

Akshun
Jun 21, 2010, 08:16 AM

Firespitter904
Jun 21, 2010, 08:26 AM
Well they didn't really specify but said if I was early shouldn't be a prob. So I'll be there cause everywhere else is gonna have small amounts but you can choose the apple store or the AT&T store in the towncenter as well if you're skeptical on going to apple.

Firespitter904
Jun 21, 2010, 11:14 AM
They aren't getting anymore than 2-4 iPhone 16gb so don't waste your time. if anyone finds different on the apple store on walk ins let us now you know how things change on the fly with apple.

ian-frs
Jun 21, 2010, 12:42 PM

GeekLawyer
Jun 21, 2010, 01:09 PM
Wow, just 100 for non-reserved people seems like a low number. If that gets out, people not holding a reservation will have to get there pretty early.

Just updated it iOS4 on my 3GS. If the speed of this thing is any preview of what we'll see Thursday, I'm even more excited for iPhone 4! :)

Went in to the store on Sat. night, asking what time I should be there if I have a pre-order, what kind of numbers they were expecting, etc.

She told me they had 800 pre-orders at their store, but wasn't sure how many they were expecting in the shipment. Also confirmed the two lines for pre-order and purchase.

I'll be there with my coffee in hand bright and early... also have a feeling I'll be the only chick in line that early. See you all there!

About five minutes after one, I got the reminder email from Apple about my reservation at the SJTC Apple Store. Like I would forget! :p

Jun 21, 2010, 02:06 PM
@ GeekLawyer I did too! I'm glad I got it, also clears up the confusion I had with the pricing that was on my original confirmation e-mail. I was one of the folks that had the $699 price showing for the 32GB, even though I'm eligible for an upgrade.

GeekLawyer
Jun 21, 2010, 02:10 PM
SB, I was surprised to hear about people getting the incorrect upgrade price. I guess it was just good luck that when I made my reservation, the AT&T eligibility info came over fine. My initial email showed the correct $299 upgrade price.

I'm sure it will be sorted out for everyone at the store. It's getting exciting! :)

Yeah I might actually do the same. I've always had the 16gb iPhones. It would be nice to be able to carry along some movies in addition to all the music I have on it but I don't really NEED 32gb.

Tim I thought mall security wont let you come any earlier than 6AM? I plan on getting there by 5AM but Ill be in the reserve line.

Im gonna do my best to avoid mall security. Maybe ill bring a dozen krispy kreme donuts with me. They will love me.

I called the Apple store about 30 minutes ago and the guy told me that the directions that the mall had given him were that people could begin lining up at 6AM and that Apple's doors will open at 7AM. Walk-ins will be on a first come first serve basis and he also told me that he had no idea as to how many units they would be receiving. If i do end up camping out, I plan to leave my house around 4:45 and hopefully get there at about 5:15-5:30.

I am really torn on when to show up, because I really want one, but I dont know how it is all going to work with the mall not opening till 6 AM. Cause i am sure people will be there before that. And how are they going to form a line when there are already a ton of people "in line." What i mean is like how are they going to manage the chaos of the people who get there before the 6 AM opening and want to claim a spot in a line?

Haha you and me both. I decided against burning a vaca day. I was going to wake up at 2 and get there by 330 but Im thinking Ill probably aim for 5. I talked to a guy at the Apple store who put me on hold and talked to the mgr and they said I could drop from 32GB to 16GB as long as they had stock. Should they decide to sing a different tune when Im in the store Ill ask someone to ask for a 16GB and have the Apple rep swap. We will probably be the only two people here at work with the new iPhone. People already want to check it out when I get it but Im hesitant to let anyone handle it.

Not sure if this has already been posted in the previous 10 pages but the cops will not allow people to camp out at the St. Johns outdoor Apple store mall.

The earliest they will allow people to line up is 6am.

With that said I am not sure how they can stop 1000 people from lining up and they can not allow 500 cars circling the mall at 5am. With over 1600 views to this thread it's obvious Jax will be a popular store tomorrow morning.

"It is correct that we will not allow lines to form before 6 a.m. If you should have any further questions, you can contact the management office at 998-7156. Thanks."

"But Apple is delivering them to people today."

"Lucky them."

I called the store as well asking about the lines, the stupid guy was like "Well all of us are normally working on launch days so we don't have any idea how the lines work." So I guess that answers that..

Jsha224
Jun 23, 2010, 12:43 PM
So if we can't officially "line up" until 6am, those of us who are arriving earlier, after the bar, should congregate in the parking lot or something. Maybe light a few trashcans on fire for heat and roast hotdogs and marshmallows and sing songs.. j/k of course, but seriously, if we can't line up we should congregate somewhere. I'm not from jax so i don't know the area that well.

We should Congregate in a line in front of the store, then when they ask us to move we should ask them how far, then we should maintain the line from that spot :)

I've read on here some people say no problem and other say they must open the box and activate the box before leaving.

I wonder how packed the AT&T store at River City will be since it's fairly new. Well it's not that new, but you catch my drift. But I guess it doesn't really matter since they aren't doing walk-ins.

Just showed up. No one on the same block as the store. There's a JSO car parked right at the entrance so no luck there. Also, there is mall security everywhere. I saw a few of you parked in the Dick's parking lot I think. I'm in that hotel's parking lot so I could blend in with the other cars. I'll do a drive around every 45 minutes or so.

So they are blocking off the entrances to the mall now? Damn thats a new one.

I'm hoping I'll be good here in the hotel parking lot. Just laying low. There is a truck next to me with two guys waiting for iPhone 4. Might strike up a convo later.

I don't think anything is open still.

Jun 24, 2010, 12:16 AM
do they not know that people all across America and beyond are lining up for this thing,, and our mall has to be one of maybe 4-6 that are banning line formation, and not till 6?? that will be funny seeing how i know like a bajillion people lining up at the latest of 4am-5am ,, they are just going to hum drum around like musical chairs and slam into place at 6am on the dot lol.

ian-frs
Jun 24, 2010, 12:21 AM
I say we start a line of cars right out front of the mall and parade in at 6.

Akaze
Jun 24, 2010, 12:22 AM
what looked like a line trying to form but I think security killed it, I moved over by the hotel

CamXCollins
Jun 24, 2010, 12:29 AM
What are you driving akaze?

Jun 24, 2010, 12:30 AM
whiskey river would make a killing if they stayed open the night threw and ticketed line numbers for apples costumers lol. sucks theirs no "first" until 6? fastest gets it suppose. meanwhile Tampa,NY,SF,and London top 200+ line attendees. talk about making friends! hows the back near the hotel going? im picturing alot of silent care waving and texts.

Akaze, your parked right behind me. I'm the black explorer behind you.

And any idea as to what time we should start walking up to the store?

Akaze
Jun 24, 2010, 12:39 AM
You facing away from the hotel? No idea but some people had said 5ish worked before, I figure security has a protocol to give up at a certain time/number of people but with jso sittin there too I dunno how that effects the game

CamXCollins
Jun 24, 2010, 12:43 AM
Yeah. That's. I say about 5-515 we walk up and see what we can do.

Akaze
Jun 24, 2010, 12:46 AM
Looks like more people rolled up next to you, there's gotta be quite a few people out and around here

Yeah. They're camping out and I've seen a whole bunch of cars rolling around. We need to get up there early. Want to go up at 515 Akaze?

Akaze
Jun 24, 2010, 01:01 AM
Yea but might even look even earlier than that just to be safe

Are most of you guys walk-in's, no pre-order?

Akaze
Jun 24, 2010, 01:10 AM
I am walk in unfortunately, preorder died on me then ship date got pushed out and I am leaving the country for a few weeks this weekend so I was banking on AT&T getting some so I could have one but well that failed. So here I am hoping I might be able to pick one up this morning.

CamXCollins
Jun 24, 2010, 01:15 AM
I'm a walk in. Hoping for the best.

Jun 24, 2010, 01:17 AM
Good luck guys. I'd venture to say you guys are safe on getting one. I would think Apple would have a good supply of phones for walk in orders, but who knows. This whole process has been crazy this year.

Hope those waiting outside town center are having a good night. I'll be up there in a few hours. Mine is reserved but want an early start anyway, as launches are always good times. Was the first one in for an iPad, but I definitely don't expect to be the same for the iPhone 4.

I'll be wearing a Wimbledon tshirt and khaki shorts.

Thanks for the update of the quantity of people at your location. Is the hotel the best place to park due to the TownC high security "code apple"?

Security won't come over here and cops rode by but didn't come over. No parking left Herr though but appears safe to stand here

Remember to check for yellow discoloration (http://www.oxyjan.com/oxyjan/2010/06/23/iphone-4-reception-problem/) on the screen guys~ Good luck! Wish I was here.
