    The one good thing about a mall opening is that the line technically can't begin until the mall lets you in :).

    You don't need a pre-order, right?

    I'm thinking about heading over tonight around midnight with my Nintendo DS, Mario Kart DS anyone?

    I think I'm going to hang out at the Macy's entrance:

    where the line starts

    pretty sure they line everyone up by the entrance that doesn't look like an entrance. just to the right of HR block and the County Store.

    when is everyone planning on getting there?

    I just talked to the Apple Store at The Cherry Hill Mall.

    There will be inventory for pre-orders and inventory for walk-ins.

    It will be first come first serve.

    So, say I'm 3rd in line behind two pre-order customers and 5 pre-order customers behind me, I will be served 3rd and my phone will come from the walk-in inventory.

    She did say that things could change last minute, so be prepared for anything as all hell breaks loose.

    I'm heading over from Philly on my Vespa around midnight... I'm sure that's WAY too early, but there is not point in trying to sleep two hours...

    Does any one know what entrance the mall will be letting us in .... Is it one or multiple doors that they are going to open... Also is it orderly fashion lineing up or is it a free for all when the doors open? Im planning on goin around 2am. I think anyone will deffently get a phonr eithout a preorder due to lazy ppl wanting to come jus about when the doors open ... Anyone experince any of this when the 3gs came out.. Trying to plan a little ahead plus this year will be a lot worse

    They will opening the mall doors at 6:00. The entrance by H&R Block, County Store, and Macy's.

    I will be enforcing an orderly line with an iron fist. We're geeks, not soccer mom's trampling each other for a cabbage patch doll. Order people, order. First come first serve.

    I think 3-4am should do it.

    Remember Walmart and Radio Shack will have the phone on launch day too.

    If you look at the map that hey_suburbia posted, the Apple store is highlighted yellow. You'll notice there are two entrances near there....one above the store, and one to the right. The entrance is the one above it, as in you cross the main walkway of the mall heading out of the Apple Store and pass through the long hallway between stores to the "entrance. It is a set of unmarked double doors, and a long hallways with some mall offices and restrooms in it. They used it in previous events because it makes it easier to manage throngs of people.

    Hrm....still debating when to show up. I've got a reservation, but if they aren't going to do two lines and just do first-come-first-served....maybe 5am isn't early enough.

    Relax, a friend of mine is works at that store (he is high enough into the rankings to have access to certain credentials) and informed me that reserves will be aplenty. He said the store received 1300 reserves alone and it shouldn't be a issue getting yours, he didn't know about walk-ins though since it is pretty much the left overs.

    wouldn't "reserves" be the "left overs"? this post makes no sense.

    I'm here. Been here for about 2 hours (6am now). The line is starting to migrate inside. Maybe about 500+ people here and growing. Once I get inside I'll repost all the details as far as lines, system
    failures (let's hope not), and how many phones they're claiming to have. So far it seems more organized than the 3GS release. We'll see.

    Post as soon as y'all know something, and I'll do the same.

    Waiting...

    At first it was supposed to be reservations first... Now they're mingling, only cuz the news is here Im sure... If u ask me, that's bulls@&t. It was like 4 clicks of a mouse to get a reservation. Like this is the first iPhone ever or some s$&t. RESERVATIONS SHOULD BE FIRST!

    On the other side of things, no system breakdowns yet, and they seem yo have a handle on things. Moving about 1 person every 2 minutes.

    Out.
