    No I wasn't, got mine elsewhere. Is 7 a good time to get there + do you have twitter or an email to contact you more easily?

    Hey mate,

    This is my first launch but the apple store guys tell me that at half 6 at the iPad launch the line was down to the o2 shop. So were thinking that + double because of the iPhone 4.

    I'm getting there for 5 to half 5 in the morning. How old are ya?

    No I reserved, went to bluewater today, and they said they won't know how much stock they will have until the day and they took over 700 reservations, thats why I'm going so early! And the queues will be huge! For the iPad like I said it was up to the o2 shop and they only took like 300 reservations and that was at half 6!

    Jack I'd suggest if you havnt reserved you get there early as possible like, 4-5 am you wanna be ine if the first in the store. If they get say 100 iPhones and there's 96 reservations for example there will only be 4 walk in iPhones for you guys to buy. I reserved mine at 4.02pm after school on my 3GS on the 15th of June :)

    I didn't know that the reserve thing was only for the 15th :(
    But i think there is going to be two lines one for reserved and one for walk-ins. but i need to phone apple to make sure its right. But hopefully with the reservations they will order 100 iphones or what ever extra.
    I think that i will probaly turn up around 6 or maybe 5.30.

    Well there was nobody waiting outside already at 5.30 this evening. I overheard one of the store guys saying there would be two queues, one for pre-orders etc, but I cant see how people pre-ordered when the store only gives you the option for home delivery, or have I missed something?

    Anyways, I'll probably be turning up about 6am. If there's a big queue then, I'm going back home to bed :)
