Hey Bakersfield where are you planning on meeting up? I'm thinking the AT&T store on Coffee. What do you think?

Same here, just let me know how it is when you're by there J. Either way, I'll probably head over there no later than 11:30pm on the 10th. That way I'm guaranteed a phone, I have a feeling they will be pretty hard to get with the lower price now. It was hard enough the first time.

Serioius? I don't think it'll start that early. Although if true, it could pose a problem to some people. Not to me though, upside of not having a job yet

According the The Boy Genius Report, the iPhone will be sold starting at 8:00 AM on the 11th as opposed to the 6PM launch they did last year.

Hello, fellow Bakersfield people,

My friend and I are going to the AT&T store at East Hills at around 5AM. That's where I picked up my first iPhone on June 29th, 2007.

Hope to see you guys there!

I wish I could just meet you guys at the Coffee store but my friend's mom has to sign his contract and she works right next to the East Hills store.

I will tweet news of the East Hills launch http://twitter.com/tedroddy

ming vs. coffee?

Seems like everybody's going to the Coffee location... anybody planning on waiting at the Ming ave. store? Or is the Coffee location just a better bet?

Opinions: how early to get in line?

And do we know for certain yet that they'll be opening at Apple's reported 8AM?

Cheers, Bako peeps.

Yeah, the Coffee store seems to be where we'll all mostly be. Not sure how it will work out for me come friday morning, I was actually hoping for a 6PM release like last year. My mom needs to be there to sign the contract since she's the one paying the bill. She'll be at work during the release, not sure if she'll be there in time, I may have to wait there until she's at lunch :\

I'm torn

I can't decide whether to go to the Coffee location to chat with fellow macrumors people or go to the Ming location to avoid you all clogging up the line!

I went to the Ming ave AT&T today. They looked like they were totally unprepared for the sale (though perhaps i'm too critical, being that it's another 36 hours before the doors open) and in general, the staff (as usual), had no idea what was going on. The lady I ended up talking to seemed to know her stuff... and she said that last year they had a line wrapped all the way around the building.

But i got the credit check pre-qual thing taken care of. Does anybody know if that's good for all AT&T locations or just the one where i got it done...? Because it would be nice to have the flexibility.

Will they be selling the Bluetooth headset on-site? Or is that a later release...

Oh well. Somebody decide for me. Ming or Coffee? Either way i'm going to try to get there at around 7.

Haha, and if i get there before you, I will gladly sell you my place in line.

I keep wondering, "why are you (being me) getting all these people to show up at one location". But hey, it is the experience that counts...right? it doesn't really matter, go where the line is shortest. The point is to get an iPhone. But we should have a meetup. And 8 am is confirmed. Make sure to back up your data

Almost time! I can't wait. And don't forget, if you go tomorrow and there's too many people, there's a decently sized AT&T off of Truxtun right by Yokuts park. I doubt many ppl will be at that one. I should be at Coffee though.

Decisions, Decisions

I am probably going to the ming store, but I admit it is with some trepidation. I was at the store on Sunday and Tuesday, and the staff did not seem like they were ready for the flood of humanity that was about to wash over them. The manager told me that everyone in line at 6 p.m. last year got a iphone and infact they had phones in stock up until the time that they closed. I thought about camping out overnight on Thursday just for the hell of it, but being 10 feet from Ming avenue for 12 hours does not appeal to me. I will probably be in line by 4 a.m. and hopefully will not have to wait too long once the doors open, since I am "suppossed" to be at work at 8. Thankfully I have a very understanding boss... so much so that he may join me in line as well.

I just got off the phone with the Coffee store, there is still no line. I'm going to head over in just a little while. Maybe an hour or so.
