Who plans on hitting the mall at 7am on the 24th? They will probably have us line up outside again like the did with the iPad. Which really sucks because its been so hot out lately.

Ok guys, I have a good friend there who is fairly high up in the organization. He let me know information of the launch. They had just over 1100 reservations for the Boca store. :eek: There will be two lines and the reserve line should move faster than the other. They expect to have plenty of phones for all the reservations and should have some for walk-ins as well, but not sure how many. All their employees will be working that day. They will be doing activations in the store, provided ATT's servers don't crap out. Also, they just got some of those machines in (2 of them) that allow them to transfer information off of any phone onto your new iPhone. Like all your contacts and such. That is pretty cool. When I spoke with him, he did not know what time the mall would open up, but did say that all Apple employees would be there at 5AM to train prior to the 7AM opening that day. Last year people who got there early and tried to line up outside the mall were chased off by the security officers and made to wait in their cars, so probably not worth getting there too early.

That is about all the information I got. Good luck guys. :)

Haha. I really hope there are not that many people that are there first thing in the AM, but I guess we will see. Hopefully it all goes smooth for us and there are no hiccups.

I was there for the first iPhone, and 3G. Both times it was pretty packed. The iPad had a lot of people too but they manage everything pretty well at that store.

Usually mall security wont let people do that. For the iPad they only started letting people line up at around 6am from what I gathered.

Also Boca P.D. likes to drive through to make sure no one is hanging out there.

I'm going to swing by on my way home at around 12am to see if anyone is trying to wait for it.
