    So...

    Who plans on braving the store on launch day? Unless something comes up, I plan on getting there bright and early.

    I'm thinking about it ... Then again, I'm in no rush ... I may wait a couple weeks, hopefully InvisibleSHEILD gets some product for iPhone 4 quick so I can pick it up and walk right outside and have them install one.

    did anyone come to this store for an iPhone launch before? are they allowing people to wait over night? if not, what time are they allowing you arrive in the morning? Thanks for the help!

    Save your money on the install fee & taxes and buy it online. With the new phone being flat, it'll be super easy to do it yourself.

    they don't allow you to wait overnight. it was either 5 or 6 in the morning that you could start waiting (i want to say six).

    I pre-ordered one through the Apple Store app for the Brea mall.
    But never got a confirmation email.
    Think it went through or not?

    I plan on going early probably. Depending on if my order went through!

    I went there last year to get my 3gs. I arrived at 4:30am and there was a line outside of the mall with over 100 people already. Security let everyone into the mall at 5am.

    so we'll be able to go into the mall through the loading dock at 6? interesting...

    and just a heads up... i called them today to make sure they had my reservation... then i asked a few questions. they told me there will be 2 lines. 1 for reserves and 1 for walk ins. BUT.. he told me they had over 2000 reserves for that store... 2 freaking thousand. sounds insane to me. he said they'll receive enough shipment to cover it. but just be prepared for a long line.

    damn

    2000 people geez im so glad i got off work for the day i guess i better bring fold up chairs lol... but i think your best bet is to bring someone with you incase you would like to sit down or go to the rest room so you dont lose your place in line thats why i have my girl go with me:D

    I think that is the best bet. Show up around 9am, give the store a good coupla hours to get through the first wave/rush and you will have a smooth, easy process.

    i don't think there is a "best bet" with that many people. plus all the people who think they can get one by just walking in first thing in the morning. i wouldn't be surprised if there were people lining up now. i'll probably still go early just so i can get it over with. regardless what time you go you're gna have to stand in line. the only way i see all this going smoothly is if they close the entire store to everything BUT iphone orders and have all their employees focused on getting everyone in and out. but i highly doubt they'd do that.

    Lines are such pains, but because I sold my 3G a few days ago, I don't see any other choice. I think I'll be there around 0300 with my good friend, mary jane, to pass the time.

    Maybe I'll bring my own Mary Jane as well. ;)
    but ya. Probably just go and get over with.

    I wish they would do that. Just shut it down until pre orders get done. Then open.
