That guy is crazy. Plain and simple. I want a picture and how much time before the next person comes and waits in line.

But, does he have a reservation? It would kind of suck to wait out there for a week, only to have to wait until all the reservation people have gotten their phones.

Seriously. What is WRONG with people?! Instead of waiting an extra week or two for my website order to come in, I'll just go waste a week in line instead!!

For a PHONE!

WTF?!

Someone go stand in line after him. Get in the news/paper and then pack it up and go home.

Wow...that's gonna be one long week.

I was expecting lines forming the night before but that was the earliest I was thinking!

1. It is 95 degrees here in Dallas today, and will be for the next week, if not hotter.

2. The store will probably give him a free phone for being a fanboy.

3. It will probably be my phone lost in the ATT Premier order fog.

You read my mind...I am about 30 minutes from that store and I am debating packing up some camping gear + a stove (yeah thats right) go out there and start making some grilled cheese sandwiches and sell them for $1...after I get on the news, be like OH CRAP! I thought this was the lot scene for Phish tour, and my phone is being shipped! WHY AM I HERE!

Dang it, this is the store I'm going to. Hope it doesn't catch on. Doesn't he know he's suposed to do it like bid sniping on eBay? You gotta look non-chalant and jump in at the last second!

A whole week spent in a tent when you can reserve one online or get it delivered to your house, this guy is crazy.

That guy probably doesn't even know who Steve Jobs is. He just wants some publicity and a reality show of his own.

it is so hot in texas right now you could offer me a FREE iPhone 4G and there is NO WAY I would stay out there for a week. I am really against standing in lines for things, but if I did I would have scouted that store until I saw a line forming then get in...at most what 10-15 people...oh darn, you are still guaranteed a phone and conversation...right now that guy is lonely for the next 5 days at least.

Oh speaking of that part of town this weekend will be littered with drunks...bet his tent gets mangled.
