I pre-ordered online (around 9 am) for pickup in the store. Not really sure what time to get there, or what time we can get inside the mall. Anyone else going?

Pre-ordered for July 2nd shipping, but plan on waiting on launch day to see if I can get one earlier. Who else is planning on standing in the FCFS line on launch day at North Point?

Also for anyone that attended launches for either the iPad or the 3GS were you able to line up in the mall or did they force you to line up outside until the store actually opened?

I didn't get a chance to pre-order on the 16th, so when I get off of work on the 23rd (6pm). I will check to see if people have already started to camp out. I was planning on getting out there around 4am, but push come to shove I will be prepared to get out there a little earlier than 4am.

I was out there for the 3G launch, and it was a complete MAD HOUSE!!! I don't remember what time released the 3G, but I think I arrived around 6:30-7:00. There had to be 100+ ahead of me, and I ended up staying in line for 7 hours. I learned my lesson from that experience, so I think I will be out there much earlier this time.

Follow me and hit me up on Twitter @drew801 if anyone decides to camp out as well. I'll be there! :apple:

I actually contacted the mall management and they said they were going to provide me with their plans next week as far as where they will stage the line and when they will allow entrance to the mall. I will post here when I get the info and you can follow me on Twitter @MrD1sturbed. I was planning on heading out around midnight to check the scene. If there are any people in line then I will go ahead and get in line then. If not i'll probably check back around 0200. Gonna be a long night, but it'll be worth it in the end. I camped for the 2G and 3G, but I had the 3GS delivered. Would have rather had the 4 delivered but ***** happens.

Talked to a guy at apple and he said to get one, you must be there by 6:00am and the mall doors open i think at 6:00am. maybe 5:30am. I will be there! i got a phone reserved though. FYI if you reserved your phone you are going to get your phone for sure on the 24th. (according to the apple employee)

So, if you reserved for North Point, what do you think would be the best way to get the phone? I don't really want to wait in line all day, but I am worried about not getting the phone if I arrive at like 5 PM. Any thoughts on this?

Jun 18, 2010, 10:02 PM
Well what I heard from the apple employee, he said u are for sure To get it before store closes. So u can go at 5pm but be sure u can get through the line before it closes. Sooner the safer.

Why are people who pre-ordered camping out? Is there a risk of not getting a phone even if you did pre-order? Will they separate the crowds into 2 lines (pre-orders and FCFS)?

I have not heard back from the mall management. I actually won't be waiting anymore as my supposed to ship by July 2nd pre-order actually shipped for the 24th. If you want to contact the mall here is the guy that emailed me back.

GL to all those who will be waiting on Thursday morning. BTW I also stopped by the store today and spoke with one of the genius's who told me that they are getting enough in to fill their pre-orders with plenty to go around for the FCFS line. He even said that they will probably have enough to last into the 2nd day of sales. Take that for what it's worth;).

Huh? I wonder how this happened. Was this a new line or replacing another line on AT&T? Just curious why mine didn't ship.

Is there a huge difference in the amount of stock Apple stores will have opposed to ATT stores? Would it be worth the drive all the way to Alpharetta just to be on the safe side if they really are going to have plenty of FCFS stock?

cc2096
Jun 22, 2010, 03:22 AM
I can tell you for a FACT that the Apple Store is your best bet. They will be getting way more stock than any AT&T store.

Went by mall office today. (Tuesday)

Door by mall office (under food court, near Starbucks) will open at 6:30. Everyone will go to Apple Store for next line. Forgot to look outside to see if anyone was camping out yet.

So what's the Twitter hashtag going to be?
My thoughts: #ip4np #iphoneNP #iphonenpmall
I will do outgoing tweets from my old phone, won't receive any until iPhone is setup (unless iTouch is in range of wifi). @mlanham

Woke up today thinking about & had Major Doh! moment:"Awwww, two days, Not Tomorrow!!!!!!!" :eek:

Thanks for that info! Looks I'll be there a little before 6:30. I will drive pass the mall tomorrow when I get off to see if people have already started to form a line.

I'll start my pre iDay tweets when I get off!

I like the second hashtag: #iphoneNP

Hey guys, I'm planning to be there by 3-4am no matter what, as I've been a night owl lately, I think I can handle this. However, I do know there's a convenient way to notify you guys over twitter with that # thing, but I am not sure how to do this. If somebody helps me with that, I'll keep you guys updated throughout the morning...

...and I believe if we all work closely together here, we can walk away with one before noon...in the meanwhile, please watch this video here from another mall...

The one thing that has me puzzled is the lady at apply I spoke with today on the phone stated that yes the line will start outside the mall at the main entrance and then they will open the doors and basicly it will just be a mad dash to be the first to the store. I hope this is not the case, I don't want to be in the top 10 outside the mall and then be like 50th cause my fat a@@ can't run that fast.

I had also called the radio shacks to check on the status of my name on the list and they had already received there phones and called the people that were getting them, so I'm quite sure the Apple store already has there phones in. I think they will have less than 150 phones and over half will be the 32g as they are hopping folks that can't get a 16g will fork over the extra 100 bucks to get their hands on the iPhone 4

I missed the preorder by a few min and I have already sold my 1st gen Iphone so I will more than likely arrive about midnight. I will be driving by tomorrow evening around 6 or 7 to see if there is any kind of line just yet.

I talked to a guy in a security uniform at the mall office. I asked "It won't be a mad dash to the Apple Store, will it?" He laughed & said "No, there will be lots of security and police."

But I guess we should plan for anything...

Yup, I decided to look at other forums from previous years and it looks like they may hand out numbers to the folks in line outside the store or only let a few in at a time so that the line remains orderly..

What time are you planning on arriving

That's a good idea. I was planning on arriving by six at the latest. Maybe carb up at the Waffle House first. (har har har!)

Which forums were you reading?

I hope the inside line is close enough to the apple store for wifi! :)

i've heard they make 2 lines but exactly at what point will this happen or IF this will actually happen it's not a fact until you're in the actual line..

i'd say be there early to make sure you secure one... but who knows if they're gonna let us camp overnight.. most malls kick you out and let the line form around 5am.. we're gonna have to go and wait and hope for some order... remember thou, it's well worth it :D

I was there for the 3g & 3gs launch. 3g I got there once the line was inside.
For the 3gs, lined up outside around 5:30am, and it was kind of a mad dash for the line outside of apple once the mall opened the doors. once the apple employees came out, they asked us to form 2 lines, 1 for FCFS and 1 for pre-orders. Once the apple doors opened, I was in and out in about 30 mins, and was about 50th in line for FCFS.
As far as how early, don't think they'll allow anyone at the door before 5am, but not sure if that'll be the same this year.
Good luck everyone - still undecided if I'll be there or, if BestBuy will actually have a phone for me as I preordered there.

Why are you getting there at 5 if you've already reserved one? You are guaranteed to get one if you show up anytime on the 24th. I would wait till the rush dies down.

So I drove past North Point this morning while I was out doing errands and I saw two guys late teen's trying to wait outside the mall near the american girl store, security was talking to them and when I came back buy they were gone.

The lady I spoke with at the apple store did say that they were going to allow folks to form a line outside the mall and that security would be on had, however she didn't say how early.

I'm thinking about arriving sometime between Midnight and 3 since I'm a no reservation FCFS shopper

I only live about 10 min from the mall so I'll swing back by later this afternoon and check things out

just heard back from the mall - doors open at 6:30, and mgmt is currently meeting with security to coordinate how it'll be organized. said their policy is no one on premises before 5am, but since several people have asked about camping out overnight, they are meeting to see if the security team can accommodate that.

Keep us updated on that. I don't want to arrive early only to be told to go home.

However I think for them to try and keep people from lining up before 5 may actually cause more problems then just letting people show up as early as they want.

If you have pre-ordered there's no point in hurrying in early. Your reservation is held all day until the store closes. Nevertheless, security already has cordoned off two separate areas for the FCFS and pre-order lines in front of the store. I was at the 3GS launch last year at this store and it was managed well and catered by Atlanta Bread Co. I recommend being courteous and orderly or security will not hesitate to remove you from mall property. Looking forward to seeing everyone bright and early!

to get one can go home...

I would head up there but it will take me an hour. I don't want to drive all that way if the manager is coming in 15 minutes to possibly send some people home based on their inventory.

Any thoughts?

I peaked at their list, it was numbered to 100 on the first page and there is 80 people, I don't know how many pages she had but they have at least 100, I'd still suggest come here asap for FCFS

I heard the manager is passing out info now. If I drive up there now and it takes me an hour think I can still get one?

This is not exactly relating to the NP Mall store, but no one will answer me on the main forum and I thought maybe one of you might know or could ask an Apple rep if they happen to appear again tonight.

I completely forgot to check about the whole account owner/primary line/authorized account thing until tonight. I'm a genius.

I know Apple stores generally don't let just an authorized user purchase a phone because they have no way of checking that. But my dad's the "Account Owner" and I'm the "Primary Line". I have the power to make other people on our plan "Authorized Users" because I just made myself one. So will I be able to buy a phone tomorrow do you think or no?

The guy next to me asked them that exact question and they said as long as you are an authorized user and have the account infor you will be able
to purchase one

So, it's 2:50 here at north point and there is about 130 people in the fcfs line. I got here at 1230 and I'm about #100. The good thing is that the apple reps are coming out about 30 min and putting everyone on the list, if you get on you get one!! Once full they will start sending people away, I thought this was great so u don't wait and waste ur time and not get one. But if your coming I would get here soon!!

How is the reserve line? I might come down there now if its getting too long or if there is a chance I won't be able to get one.

Thanks for the update, I'll probably leave in half an hour or so.

I know this is a long shot but I was wondering if I pre-ordered the 16GB if I could up it to a 32GB? I'm sure it's not a possibility because of the demand but I'm hoping I can make it happen.

Fcfs line really long, perhaps 200 or so

Mall guard courteous, escorting small groups inside to use rrs

New cardload of fcfs hopefuls arrive about every 10 minutes or so

I asked Apple reps same question. One was "well, maybe" and the other was "oh, sure!". 16 people in reservation line now - I'd say you have a good chance.

A couple girls down here are saying that they will only let in 1 FCFS for every 30 preorder person they let in... Has anyone else heard this? It just doesn't seem likely to me...

Hard to tell, but for the iPad, the Perimeter store let about five reserved in for every one FCFS.

Was hoping people who got phones early would discover Magical Unicorn Dust that Apple was trying to hide.
