Iphone 5 Buford, Ga

I spoke with Mall Security and they said they don't allow people to line up until 6am, letting them in at 8am. Does this sound right? I find it hard to believe they have security running around in the middle of the night. Anyone?

I was there last year for 4s and originally I lined up at the Dick's upper entrance and was moved an hour later stating this was the wrong entrance. I was directed to the other side and when I got there was told to hang out in HHGregg parking lot. There was a group of campers there and they were doing an honor number system for who arrived first and at what time. The mall allowed us to get in the their parking lot and the door around 5-530. Then the mall opened up the doors and let the people inside in front of the apple store around 7-730.

This year I'm getting their a little earlier than last year, 4AM, and will try to park a chair by the door and then hang out as long as I can before kicked out of the parking lot.

I got to the Dick's door but was redirected to the entrance across from HHGregg. This is the entrance that if you walk in and go up the flight of stairs you will see the apple store on your right.

I called Mall Security today. They said Door "4" at Belk was the door that would be opened early. The guy said they would open the door at 8am.

See you guys around 6

I think that is the door we went in last year... I plan to drive by after work on Thursday to scope out the situation. I have a feeling people camping out will be kicked out of the parking lot into another one such as HHGregg and then will be allowed to go over by a specific time to wait in line until they open the doors.

Well I decided to come to the Mall of GA and as of 6am there is almost 100 people, not too bad comparing it to 2 years ago at the north point mall where there was around 400 people by 6am
