6am? Good lord...

I was thinking 5PM but you have me worried now. I am going to subscribe to this thread and I want you to provide updates from the queue on the day if possible. Are you taking a MB/MBP that you could do this with? I work from home in the town centre so can come by at any time, and would like to know if the queue started to get silly so I can get in line. Im just not sure about the allocation the Apple stores will have. I cant honestly see them having more than a couple of hundred phones in there.

12 hour madness that is. How will you be keeping yourself occupied?

I can work from anywhere there is an internet connection, however my battery can only last so long.

So the earliest I could get there and live on the Macbook battery life is probably 3.00pm

To be honest, probably those waiting with me will occupy me.
I'll have to make friends in The Trafford Centre as my friends are not nearly nerdy enough to keep me company.

The only thing stopping me from going to the Arndale is the lack of free parking in Town.

I will be!

Can only get there for 4pm but I think I'll be fine! If they've got 500 iPhones surely there won't be 500 people in the queue? that'd be crazy!

I just hope the people inside buy and leave rather than play around with them for half an hour

^ I am counting on those updates man. I can't afford to miss out on the iPhone tomorrow. So as soon as it starts to get busy, update the thread

Wow free coffee and free wifi - sounds like you're having an ace time! I'd expect a few reporters and a possible camera crew in the next couple of hours if I was you!

Hey! Do you think you could ask the Apple store guys how many iPhones they will have in stock for tonight - also do you know if they'll be open till 10? Some other stores inside shopping centres aren't staying open too late tonight.

Cheers

Are you on Twitter? Might be easier to post updates to there from your phone if your Mac battery life goes.

Heh, I caught a glimpse of you with your powerbook as I left the shop about half an hour ago. I have to admit I felt very tempted to join you and wind up buying one - despite being mired in my 3 contract - and that's what I knew I had to leave or face a life of debt

The only problem now is lack of sleep. It's starting to kick in. I've been here for 7 hours and 12 minutes. I'm still loving it and cannot wait to have an iPhone in my hands in 4 hours and 20 minutes!
I would wet myself if you were declined by your card company or if you got rejected by a credit check.

Seriously though - enjoy your iPhone. Did you take the day off or are you just a slacker? (says me posting on a forum... at least it's lunch... )

Stock?

Do you know how much stock they have?

I finish work and 4 and coming straight into town, hope the queue isn't long then....

Your my idol wish I was off work too!

Dude, I think you may need some counseling...
