Hey Hex, you said you've been there is past years? I just moved here, how long were the lines in previous years? Is 4 a good time to get there to be in front?

I was there at 4AM last year and there were only about 10 people waiting. I got in the line at about 5AM and there were the same 10 people.

This year is going to be allot different because it seems allot more people want this phone.

I pre-ordered last year and this year. Last year, they had two lines, one for pre-orders and one for those who didn't. The pre-order line got to go in the store before those who didn't so in the pre-order line, I was actually third in line.

I'm still going to show up at 4AM this year, I just don't see a point of getting there any earlier with a pre-order.

Well, unfortunately I couldn't get through to get a pre-order, so I guess I'll be there bright and early to make sure I'm in the front...I have to take the bus and light rail and am coming from Denver, so I have to leave at 1 to get there by 4..haha. I guess I'll bring a pot of coffee with me haha.

Did you notice when they started letting the non pre-order line get into the store last year?

I didn't notice because the store opened at 7AM and I was out of there at 7.10.

I have a preorder, Ill probably be there around 6-6:30. I'd rather get the extra sleep and wait a little longer than get there earlier.

The smart way to do it! haha. Unfortunately, I didn't get a pre-order in and I upgraded my 3G to the iOS4 today and boy is it sluggish, so I NEED an I4, so I will be there bright and early to make sure :)

Me and a couple of friends missed the pre-order also. We're still all trying to decide when to head to the store.

I'm curious how many phones will be available to walk-ins.

Well, I'm going to be camping out, getting there about 10pm Wednesday night. Would like to be first 5 and this year looks like it's a bit more of a "want" for a lot of people. If you feel like camping out, let me know. Sleeping bag, therm-a-rest , and a little safety ;) I'll be in the Giants hat. See you in the a.m.

Flatirons is a mall though so they won't allow people inside until 6AM, same with Cherry Creek. Boulder would probably be the best bet if you want to make sure you have a good place in line early.

I'm not sure if they allow a line outside a mall before 6AM.

flatirons will let you in. i was there for the ipad launch, people were there all night waiting for it. I didnt show up until like 7:30 for my reservation and there were alot of people waiting in line at that point for the non reserve. I will probably show up there at something like 4 am. i dont know if the demand is really as huge as it is or if it was a bunch of idiots pre-ordering more than one at more than one place to make sure they get one.

Well in sacramento, for the 3gs launch, i showed at 4am to an ATT store and was the 6oth person in line. This is my first launch in CO.

iPad launch I got to Aspen grove around 6am and was about 10th in line in the pre order line I dunno this iPhone seems to be a whole nother animal

im goin around 4 am. shouldnt be too long of a line then. There is plenty of apple stores people will be spreading across, and alot of the reservations i think were people putting in multiple everywhere to guarantee they have one. Shouldnt be more than 10-40 in line at that point, but maybe im way off.

Damn you're kidding me, are you in pre order line or walk in?

did anyone end up going to the flatirons store? 30 doesnt sound very bad, considering i bet they get over 1,000 phones in total

I think djinn is at Aspen grove and in think he's in the walk in line judging by previous posts. I'm wondering what the preorder line is like, thinking of showing up at 5 am depending on what djinn says

i have to drive down from foco, so im gonna keep checking on here and hope that there will be an update. Thinking of leaving at 5 to get there around 6. have to be back to work by 2, so i hope i will be leaving the store by noon at the latest.

I'm not showing up till about 4. Last year, they formed the lines at about 6.30 or so and had some people working the lines verifying pre-orders as well as eligibility.

Yeah, same as last year. I have a reservation and I'm still not showing up till 4AM. Once they sort the lines, the reservation line will be allot smaller than the walk ups.

Last year it rained on 3GS release day so it was very cold. I think the temp was down around 45 or so, so it was very cold. I'm bringing a jacket. Update on the line length?

Almost to the parking lot. Easily 3 times as long since when I got here. Getting hard to estimate numbers lol

Just showed up. The line is around the corner, to the end of the building and back to the parking lot.

Hey, Dukebound, I have a blanket for you. Come find me. In a red chair by the grass.

Because of the line, I've decided to just show up around 9-10 since I have a reservation. Hopefully the line will go down quite a bit by then. I also know that I will get ahead of anyone who doesn't have a reservation.

Acevesx
Jun 24, 2010, 05:50 AM
I'm here,by the stop sign, after the lign wraps around near the building lmao, I'm waiting until they split the lines and hoping the reservation line is a lot smaller.


Any estimation form who you've talked to of the split of walkins and reservations?

I heard that about half of the first 60 people have reservations.

When I left the store at 8AM with my phone, there were probably 100+ people in the line for reservations... and probably the same for no reservations. They are letting 1 walk-in person in the store for every 20 reservation people. Those walk-in are going to be there for awhile. However, they will let you take the phone to activate at home.

I was like the third person through after the first large wave, and that's just what I overheard the front door person say. It might have been 50:1...

Enjoy the phone!!!

Much needed upgrade over my 3G.

Jeebus...I was getting upset at how quick the reservation people were being ushered after being there since 10pm....

Got out by 945


Nice upgrade from my 3g

FYI, Stopped by around noon, I was told the reservation line was about an hour and a half long. They had sold out of walk-in phones but there was still a (separate, about equal length) line to put your name on the reservation list. Had to get to work but I'll prolly swing by around 2 or 3 again.

I did. Ended up not using my two reservations at Aspen Grove and went to Flatirons. Line wasn't too bad to start, just barely reached the side walk before the parking lot. We got there at 5AM as walk ins and left at about noon.

Walk ins and reserves got equal time more or less, one or two of each went into the store at a time.
