    Hello all,

    Just throwing the idea around if anyone would like to meet up outside of the KoP mall for Friday. I preordered through the Apple Store App but not soon enough- my expected delivery date is 10/5. I am considering cancelling this order and camping out instead. Anyone else interested at all?

    Wish I could join ya but this year I opted to get it shipped to my house (I live in the suburbs of Reading). Normally I come to KOP to get mine. I'd get there hella early if you wanna camp out...

    I'll be arriving back to my home (at college normally) around 2pm Thursday. I am extremely considering going out starting Thursday night (and doing an all-nighter). If you do scope it out before I get there (if I decide to go), please let me know how it looks.

    Thanks! :D:D:D

    Ordered online this year :( Have fun everybody!

    Quick question for those in the KoP area: do you know if AT&T LTE makes it that far outside the city? Guess I'll find out tomorrow, just curious.

    At the store now info I've been given is:
    Once the mall closes tonight at 9 the line is to start forming outside of the Rite Aid entrance. Apple employees will start escorting people in groups of 10 to form the line inside beginning at 6am. Limit 2 iPhones per person, must be the account holder or authorize user on the account.

    Currently no line inside the mall.

    About 30 or so inside. I heard a security guard mention there were people lined up outside of Citizens Bank (court and plaza connection area). Enter through Rite Aid for sure that is the only door open! (And come say hello!)

    Only about 30 or so inside. Come on down and make sure to enter by RITE AID. They will likely have enough for sure.

    Sounds like KoP is probably stocked for walk-ins today. Seems like a lot of people ordered online this year. Any updates?
