    MacArthur Center Mall (Norfolk)

    I'll be attending.

    Last year the line started as soon as they opened; I'd advise being there no later than that.

    I was there last year thats where I got my 1st gen iPhone but now I live in Las Vegas, NV so will be at the AT&T store here as Apple Store is to far to drive....

    I'm going to be at the Williamsburg, VA AT&T store--not as exciting as being at an Apple Store, I know, but saves an hour or so drive to either Norfolk or Richmond.

    Edit: In case there are multiple stores in Williamsburg I am not aware of, I mean the one on Monticello next to the Blue Ridge Mountain Sports Store.

    Greenbrier

    I'll be going to the AT&T store at Greenbrier. I am not an existing ATT member so I need to create an account, along with my family.

    So, I'm going pass on going to McArthur. Also, the line should be less at the ATT stores.

    Send me a PM if you will be going to Greenbrier.

    I may actually end up at the AT&T store in Chesapeake Square Mall. Last year at 2 PM there were only 10 people lined up.

    I work nights, so I'm going to die trying to get to MacArthur early in the morning.

    That would be my preference. I work only a mile or so from there, so it'd be super easy to swing by there. My buddy has his $100 iPhone credit still, so we'll probably end up at MacArthur. Blah. :)


    I was towards the tail-end of that line. Only took about 30 minutes from the time they reopened until the time I was heading out of the parking garage. If you really have to activate in the stores, not sure I'd be wanting to go at all on launch night. :eek:

    I wasn't sure if I was going to go to AT&T or Apple, but now that Apple has confirmed they are opening at 8 a.m., I think I am going to Apple since it is closer for me.

    The mall opens at 7:30 for mall walkers, hopefully it stays the same Friday so there won't be long lines...unless dumb people decide to make lines in the parking garages or something!

    Think I'll be heading to Greenbriar or the one on VB Blvd. Maybe head out there an hour or two before opening. Maybe a little earlier. What time are you all planning to head out?

    NN or Williamsburg for iPhone 3G

    I'll be at the Newport News store. Not sure what time I'll be out there. It depends on if there is a line. I may head up to Williamsburg. Anyone going to the NN or Williamsburg stores? What time will you be out there?

    MaCarthur Mall Line

    Anyone want to name the place to start the line at MaCarthur Mall?

    Apple won't name a door and the Mall Security office says all doors will be open at the same time.

    I'm going to Macarthur Center Mall. :)

    By the way, I stopped by the AT&T store in Newport News this evening to "pre-qualify" for a new account. Gal behind the desk said that they would have to re-run the credit check tomorrow...I said "go-ahead", I'll take my chances. I told her that I was going to Norfolk for the phone and she thought I would have to go back there to activate it. :p Well, we'll see if the pre-qual works as advertised, and now I need to decide on white/black.

    Thanks for the info on the 07:30 door opening time. I aim to beat the tunnel traffic if I can so that I can get the phone and get back north in time for some work tomorrow.

    On the website under the "mall walkers" section it says the mall opens at 7:30 and to park in the North Garage and use the doors by the Kay Jewelers on the 1st floor...I'm guessing those will be the only doors that are unlocked then?

    I'm going to get there around 7:30....I'm supposed to be at work at 8:30 but at least I only work downtown right by the mall so hopefully it won't take too long!
