I should be there. Anyone else?
I'll be there. Hopefully have a pre-order so I can be in and out and off to work.
I'll be out. Trying to decide what time to hit the line. Thinking around 5:30 or 6.
I'll definitely be there!
I'll be there, I have a reservation (which I'm not sure means anything) but I'll prolly be there around 6:30-7:00. Does anybody know if I'll need to be there earlier?
The mall opens at 5, so that's probably when I'll get there. I have a reservation as well.
Do you know how they are gonna do things? Lol I've read so much info on how people think the stores are gonna handle it, so I don't know how they will do it at woodland. I was there when the ipad 3G was launched, and it seemed to me like they only had one line. I went there for a different reason so I just got to walk in lol but I'm wondering if maybe the line was for walk ins, and reservation people got to walk in like I did? Idk haha
Mall opens at 5 AM, the Apple Store opens at 7 AM
CORRECTION: Mall opens at 6 AM, not 5.
I plan to be there when the mall opens. The store could not tell me what arrangements the mall had made for early arrivals (<7 AM). I am hoping the Apple store staff would have some coffee for the die-hard fans who show up before the store opens.
I did not pre-order my iPhone online as I am hoping to get one at the store on launch day. We'll see how that works out. I'll be really disappointed if they don't have any iPhone for walk-ins like me.
Which Mall Entrance?
Does anyone know which mall entrance we should line up at if we get there before 5 AM?
I was wondering that as well, as I've never been to the Apple store for a launch. But I was thinking maybe one of the two entrances nearest the Macy's dept. store? It's the closest one to the Apple store. I dunno.
Mall opens at 6 AM, not 5 AM
Confirmed 6 AM mall opening with AT&T, Apple and the Mall office. Apple and AT&T will open at 7 AM.
Also confirmed that they WILL have iPhones for walk-ins. I don't see any point in getting there before the mall opens, especially if you have a reservation/pre-order.
Hey all, I'm new here but was interested in who else was gonna be there in the morning. I was there last year for the 3G S launch around 5:30. The security guard opened the door around 5:45 and there were 2 lines outside the apple store around the statue. One for reservations and the other for walk-ins. They did have coffee and water for the first people in line. The people who had reservations were able to go in before others. Hope this answers some of your questions.
Ps. the reason I'm getting there early is incase the white iPhone 4 magically appears for the first few customers.
Anyone know which entrance to be at? I'm thinking 5am for me. I have one reserved but want to get two, since the Apple Store app didn't like me signing up for two..
Last year it was the entrance out back on the west side near Macys
Myself and about another dozen folks are in Holland, MI at an iPhone Developer training conference. We're considering coming to GR ~5am and wait in line. Does anyone have any idea what our chances of getting the new iPhone are? From past experience, did early arrivers get the newest iPhone or were they turned away empty handed. I'm from Kansas City and just trying to get a feel of what to expect and any tips/hints/etc are much appreciated.
Has anyone confirmed today if they will indeed have any devices for walk-ins and if so approximately how many?
I was thinking about getting there around 2am, but I was not sure if the mall security would have an issue with it. Has anyone been there early before? Will they let you line up or stay in your car?
When I called the apple store yesterday they said line up at 5am.
They didnt say anything about inventory when I asked.
Last year it was raining so everyone stayed in their cars until a security guard came out and shined his flashlight to tell us he was opening the doors. I got there last year and around 5:45 there was only maybe 10 cars in the parking lot. Most people didnt arrive until around 6:30.
I really dont see the point of lining up around 2. Its not like you get to line up outside of the store, just the mall. Plus it most likely will be storming all night.
Don't you expect a lot more people this year since att is not selling them tomorrow and the fact that it is a major upgrade for most people? I'd just hate to get there at 530 and be out of luck since I wasn't able to get a pre-order to go through.
My understanding is that the stores will have plenty for walk ins, but the reservations just get in first..
Getting up at 5am, shower, and hitting the road by 5:20. Should hit the mall by 5:40. Have reservations for two. Did the same for the iPad launch, but didn't have reservations, intended to walk-in. Got there about an hour and half before opening and ended up about 15 or 20th in line. The Apple staff came out a few times and briefed us on how everything would work. They let just about an equal number of reserved and walk-ins in the store at the same time. Took me about 45min (after opening) before I got in. There were still late arriving reserved people waiting in their line. I think the 5:30-5:45am timeframe is good. Not too early to have to camp out, and not too late to be there most of the morning - if history tells us anything.
Good luck tweeple.
Plan on tweeting updates. Follow me @spicoli if you want.
Already a dozen people in line.
there is already physically 12 people in line at the mall?!
More like 30 now, I'm second in line.
Wow, I had no idea there were so many MR members in the GR area!
