    Who's going to be there on the 24th June?

    I'm lining up outside apple and having a friend lineup outside CPW for me.

    I will be first in line. I'm a student on a gap year with no job, a decently fast car and I really really want to get a white one if they have them in stock.

    They open at 8am, both the centre and the stores.

    I'm currently debating whether to line up for Apple store (pros = mroe likely to have white, great service, nice people, cons = not very experienced with contracts etc) or CPW (pros = more experienced, native software for upgrades/credit checks etc, shorter line, cons = white!?!??!)

    i was at brent x last year, while queuing the guys from cpw walked up to us and told us they had 3gs in stock and no queues! i saw a couple people walking out of there with phones while i was still queuing!

    Upgrading in the Apple store took forever though!

    Yes, exactly. Do you think it is better so queue at Brent Cross rather than Regent St?
    Where exactly do we have to queue up?
    And do CPW sell also Sim-free phones?

    Thanks

    Hey just wondering, what time will you Brent Cross guys be queuing up?

    I don't have a reservation so was planning on getting there at dawn - too early, too late??

    I'm still trying to decide whether to head for Milton Keynes or Brent Cross. As I haven't reserved a phone I wonder where I'll have the best chance of getting one? Wherever I go, I'll get there about 8.30-9am. Any comments from anyone, especially those with previous experiences?

    Not exactly anything to do with queueing but I asked at the
    information desk that the centre has and the lady answered
    my question before I asked it - the question being "What
    entrances will be open to get into Brent Cross at 8 the morning?".

    Her answer was "All".

    How stupid. That'll mean a mad-dash from all entrances towards the Apple Store and a possible stampede if there are enough people. It also means getting to a given entrance earliest doesn't guarantee you first in the queue outside the store.

    I asked the Apple Store a few days ago who said go to the main entrance.

    If it's any help, I've just passed BX again and from what I could see, nobody
    was outside. If there was somebody, I do apologise :eek:

    Ah, I'm sure that'll all change come dawn.

    Thanks for the info.
