So anyone heading over to the Apple store in Arden?

I was there for the 3GS launch and it wasn't too bad. Got there around 4-5am but found out at 6am that only primary holders could buy the iPhone even though I am an authorized account user. Drove a few parking lots to AT&T and the line was shorter.

For the iPad launch the line was very short. I arrived around 530-6 and stood again the the first come, first serve line. They were serving water and coffee which was very generous. The transaction went by very fast after they opened and I was in and out of the store in ten minutes with two ipads.

This year I expect it to be a similar launch like the 2g or 3G. I was able to reserve two iPhones but still need two more. Hoping once I'm in holding the two reserved phones, I can ask for two additional phones.

I think arden mall is a great spot...less people and AT&T is close by just in case you're not able to get a phone.

Trust me. You will want to avoid Arden Fair like the plague on the 24th/25th. With more people knowing about the store there, it will be packed. Your chances will be better at the Galleria at Roseville instead. To be completely honest, it would be better to make a weekend out of it and drive up to Summit Sierra in Reno. Lines will be much smaller there.

I'm going to give it a try - I'm out for the summer so this will be my official first adventure. I have a confirmed reservation so I will be in that line;)
Does anyone have any idea what time I should arrive so I won't be sitting in the line 5 hours after the 7 am opening? At least Starbucks is right at the main door to get to the escalator for the :apple:store!!

From what my friends told me, Galleria is just as busy now as the one in Arden. I already made reservations at Arden though :( but that is a smart idea to go to Reno.

I will probably drive by around 10pm possibly midnight...if there is no one there to a small amount I'll check again later. More than likely my younger brother and me will be there at midnight.

On a side note I haven't lined up this early since the wii first came out...at least the weather won't be too bad.

:DFirst day of my summer vacation! I'm sipping my Bucks now, but when the mall opens I think I'll wander of there and ask the Apple crew what time to get in line and how Arden Fair handles these things as far as opening doors, etc. Once I find out this info, I'll post again.

Very nice Apple rep told me that there will be two lines as we expected. There will be signs in the mall and outside directing the lines. The mall has not yet told them what time they will open the outside doors:confused:

Well from heat I know from the 3GS and ipad...mall opened up for apple and start bucks around 6. You walk in through star bucks and most people will get something from them and proceed to the apple store. There will be two lines for reserves and walk-ins. Once you're settled most of the people were pretty nice and people were coming and going to use the restroom with no hassle of getting back in line.

Now as for the iPhone 4....I think the lines will definitely be long and will start early. I believe the mall closes at nine on weekdays. My plan is around 10-11, I'll drive by and see if there's a line. If there is none I'll come back every one to two hours until I see a small crowd form. I'm hoping that's not until 4-5...wishful thinking though

I'm not the primary account holder but i am an authorized account user. My mom is the primary account holder and she will be at work so she cant pick it up at The apple store in Arden. I called at&t about this asking if i could still pick it up being authorized and they said yes that i can pick it up at apple and need my photo id etc. Im confused from your post thinking that i cant any more :confused:

I'll be waiting in line Wednesday night in anticipation of the 4's launch. What I'm wondering though is how Apple deals with having a line outside the mall. Like do people just start sprinting to the Apple store once mall doors are unlocked? Or do they just walk really fast and pretend like they're not racing? lol. I hope the white iPhones are available. I thought they looked goofy and unnatural with a black back, but now that they're just about all white, I'm intrigued.

For "security purposes", we're not allowed to line up outside of the mall until 6:30AM.
So I'm just going to sleep in, get there at 6:20, and then try to outrun everyone else from their cars to the door.
And then security will walk us to the apple store.

this was from my experience when trying to upgrade to the 3gs. I was already in line in front of apple and they told me if i was not the primary then they couldn't do anything. I called this time and they said authorized user can purchase.

Oh I did not know that. I believe the earliest I've been was around 5-530 and think I remember some people lined up outside. Once they opened up starbucks people didn't bum rush in either. The line that was outside pretty much stayed the same except divided into apple's two lines. If this is the case I'll probably do what you're saying. Why camp out if it's not allowed lol

Just talked to the Apple Store and although they wouldn't tell me the # of people on the reserve list, they told me it was "substantial". She also said that we would have to wait in our cars until the mall opened at 6 or 6:30.:eek::eek:

I stopped by Best Buy and the Zagg front and back protection for the 4 was hanging right on the rack! I shelled out the $30 - since reading about scratches this morning I'm becoming paranoid! Bumper won't be here until the 5th or I'll buy another color tomorrow. See everyone there!:p

This is not how it was at Arden for the 3G launch. They allowed us to line up earlier outside the building by Starbucks (~3:30am). Once the mall opened (earlier than normal for customers), we were escorted by security, still in line, to the apple store upstairs. Didn't bother hanging out for the 3GS launch (walked right in on 6/19/09, no lines).

Any updated information this time?

I stopped by the Galleria @ Roseville earlier today and security looked mystified as to why people were camping out by the doors on the steps of the mall near Crate and Barrel/Pottery Barn. I'm hoping they let people hang out there. I heard theres gonna 2 lines too... one for reserves and one for non-reserves. I have mine reserved, but I'm wanting to get in/out as early as possible.

Anyway, I think I'll leave my place around 3am to scope out Arden to see what's up.

just came back from arden fair a little while ago.

mall security handed out numbers to people waiting in line at 2:30 AM.

basically mall security told people they can't line up on mall property until 5:30 am so everyone lined up on the sidewalk outside the mall starting around 10pm.

one jackass showed up and tried to sit at the front of the line when there were already 50-60 people in line. he kept saying that his plan was to rush thru the mall parking lot and get to the front of the line when the doors opened.

he kept saying there is no such thing as a line and therefore he doesn't have to go to the end of it.

anyways, long story short, mall security showed up at 2:30 am, handed out number cards to people in line, and our good friend the jackass tried to pretend that he had been in the top 10 in line all the time. after 10 people said he was full of ****, he got his ass handed to him and sent to the back of the line which was now over 100 people easily.

anyways, everyone dispersed after numbers were handed out and people will be going back around 5:30 to line up with their numbers.

good luck to everyone!

All done and sitting in Starbucks at Howe About Arden! Was #180 in line= blue ticket with 80 on it. Once we got up to the line split, I ended up #25 in the reserve line. Walked into the store at 7:02 and was out and connected at 7:16! They fed us Starbucks and huge breakfast burrittos and water in line. Before the store opened all of the employees did and lap around the upstairs clapping and jazzing the crowd up! If you haven't got into the reserve line yet, I would wait until 3 or 4 to do so. They are NOT serving the walk-ins yet and that line is past Sears and around and back up towards the :apple: Store! BTW, the phone is gorgeous! April

I was there at opening today--smallest line yet. Probably like 50 people tops in line, probably no more than 1 hour. Good time to go. No more bumpers though!

so what does that mean.. they wont hand out a walk-in phone until the people on the list get a phone?

So as people go in..the list gets bigger and bigger..and there wont be a chance of someone just walking in and getting a phone right there?

they don't have any phones, you can call and put your names on the priority list and they will email you once they are available. 3-5 days.

Anyone still looking for phones look into Parrot Cellular. Picked up a 32 gig today and I know they had more at various stores around town. I walked in and walked out in 20 minutes. No one even knows they are selling them (until now).

I placed my name on June 25th. Got pickup email July 2nd, so exactly 1 week wait.

Everyone who wants an iPhone 4 and another one should placed their name on Apple's Priority Lists. That is your best bet to get your iPhone 4 quick. Don't do it at AT&T, you have to pay up front and there's a restocking fee if you want to return it. Apple doesn't charge restocking fee and you don't have to pay until your phone arrives. You can even sell your pickup confirmation emails. hahaah. I've seen those on craigslist. Walk in sale probably won't happen til the end of July or maybe in August. And there should be plenty of white ones when it come out. :D
