Is anyone interested in meeting up at the Montgomery Mall or the Bethesda Row Apple Store?

I'm deciding between a few apple stores. But Bethesda is on my list. What time are you hoping to go there? I'm thinking of going around 12am. Its gonna be a long wait! haha. Plus just checked the weather its going to rain like crazy haha.

Any Suggestions of where we can park? I know there is a free community lot but are we allowed to park there over night etc? Let me know.

Camping out is not an option since I need to be in College Park by 9:00am.

getting to montgomery mall around 5am

Iím going to be getting to Montgomery mall around 5am. I need sleep and the lines donít get too long until about 1 hour before opening. I heard that security kicked one guy out for coming in too early last time, but he got back in after some time and ended up being like 2nd or 3rd in line. I used the entrance by the cafeteria last time.

Oh no. Don't they realize that it's pissed itself and has touch de-enhanced antennae?

How are the lines NOW?

How many on the "reserved line" at Montgomery Mall, MD?

I have a reservation to pick one up and would like to go there when the wait is not much, but when they still have the bumpers in stock!

At the Annapolis store, they only had between 25-50 phones for walk INS. Sold out in 30 mins.

Debating between Montgomery Mall and Bethesda Row for the iPhone 5. Possibly considering Tyson's corner. New to the DC area, so suggestions are welcome!

I'm hoping that iPhone 5 lines will be shorter than iPhone 4 since there isn't an option for in-store pickup preorders this time.

I've never been to the Bethesda row location but I would think it would be a little more organized as the Montgomery mall is always crazy. You could drive past Bethesda row then see if you want to risk it. You'd probably want to line up Thursday night though.

And if Best Buy wasn't doing preorders, I would've said skip the Apple stores but it seems like most of the other retailers are doing preorders.

I work in Bethesda, so I'm going to drive by Bethesda Row today and see what the line looks like. The advantage of the Montgomery Mall store is parking, since it's free.

So I drove by the Bethesda Row store about half an hour ago. I only saw one person camped out in front of the store. I hope that means tomorrow won't be too crazy.

UPDATE: Passed by there just after 8pm. Looks like the line has grown to about 20 people.
