    Is anyone on here buying an iPhone from twelve oaks? I am trying to get a feel as to how long the line will be.

    Im in East Lansing, probably going to hit twelve oaks, though I might go to Grand Rapids, I really don't trust any local AT&T stores around here, so my boss and I are taking friday off early to head to an apple store

    Hm.. I didn't even know twelve oaks had an Apple store, haha. Somerset has one (which is where I'd be buying mine if I could afford it :p).

    i guess it is at the Woodland mall, never been.

    Also Briarwood in Ann Arbor is getting a new store soon as well as Partridge Creek (i think thats the name). Michigan will have 5 apple stores by year end.

    I'm in East Lansing as well, and I'm thinking about heading out the the AT&T store in the mall. I know the AT&T people won't know anything about the iPhone, but all I we really need to know from them is what are the costs of the plans. Could then possibly tell us anything we don't already know?

    The last thing I want is some AT&T person trying to tell me how great the iPhone is - just give me an 8Gb model and sign me up...

    Because of the contracts, the price and having to be on AT&T's network, I'm hoping to be able to get one Friday night...

    if you go to the at&t store and u find out how much it will cost for a contract and everything that is necessary to support full iphone functionality, and u could let me know, i would appreciate it. i also want to have mine by friday night but i found out i have to leave for indiana friday morning so i will have to order one online from the hotel room that night which pisses me off.:mad: but oh well what can ya do about it

    I'm in Okemos, and planning on heading to the Meridian Mall AT&T store around 2-2:30. If there's no line, I'm gonna dick around in the mall for a while while periodically checking the line. I was also thinking of checking out the store in Lansing, but being a stand alone store, they'll probably make you wait outside. What time are you East Lansing guys gonng go wait?

    the meridian ATT guys are ****ing morons. I would not put all my eggs in one basket and wait there. That place will more than likely be a total cluster****, and as stated before they are idiots and I would prefer to not give them my business.

    yeah, and if you go to the apple store they have release parties, and they sometimes have giveaways, just like when they release a new os, or things of that nature. most of the stores close at 5, or earlier, and then all will reopen at 6 for the release which we are all waiting for:D

    Yeah, I was referring to the AT&T store next to Circuit City in Lansing. There's also an AT&T store in Howell.

    I'm not too concerned with the level of celebration for the release. I don't think I'm gonna go to Twelve Oaks or Somerset since that's pretty wealthy suburban Detroit and I think it'll be packed. I've dealt with a few guys from the Okemos AT&T store w/o difficulty. I just wanna go to a store with the least amount of fanfare possible (if possible).

    I've been to the Apple store in GR - it's a little smaller than the ones in Twelve Oaks, but pretty much like all of the other Apple stores I have been to.

    I had a Nano replaced under waranty at the genius bar, and that was my only real contact with the employees. My impression of the staff is that they are not real knowledgable compared to someone who visits the MR forums.

    The genius was OK, and my warranty swap was hassle free...

    My reason for NOT going to the Apple stores (besides the hour drive either way) and I think they will attract a much more high-end crowd. I think my chances will be better to get a unit in Okemos...

    iPhone in GR

    I'm in Grand Rapids and wont go near the Apple store on the 29th. I figure the best place is to hit my local AT&T/Cingular Store.
