    I'll be there June 24th to pick up my pre-ordered iPhone 4! Also bringing my girlfriend who's getting her first iPhone ever! :apple:

    Who else is planning on going to KoP?

    I have a reservation for the KOP store. I bet it will be worse than the 3g launch.

    Hmmm, maybe I won't be wearing my t-shirt since I'll have to go straight to work after.

    For those of you that went to the other iPhone launches at KOP, how early did you go? Will the mall even let you in before 7am?

    I plan to pick mine up after work that day.

    Unless I start feeling froggy and decide to get in line. I would need to know more of how the mall and apple will handle the lines and entry. Should be interesting.

    Only enough I kind of enjoy the line waiting. You meet some new people and some you wish you didn't meet.:D

    I went to the the 3G launch @ KoP around 10am. I waited in line for 6+ hours while they activated the phones :( They finally gave up and tolds us to activate them when we get home. I think they even had a hard time processing credit cards too :(

    I pre-ordered upstairs at the AT&T store, because I wasn't sure if Apple would be able to apply an employee discount that I qualify for through a retailer. Not waiting in line because I have work (Even if I didn't, standing in line is boring), but I'll probably stop by after 5PM. The AT&T representative said they would call me, so I guess I'll have to wait for that.

    Maybe I'll call the Apple store today to see when they're planning on opening the mall. It would be hilarious if they said they're opening the mall at 7am with a mad rush of people running to the store once the doors open...

    I'm debating on whether to go here or Ardmore since I will want to visit because I am getting it delivered to my home and want to see how the lines are.

    Was there a line outside the mall before they opened the doors? You could really be screwed if you waited at the wrong mall door.

    That main entrance where Citizen's Bank is and the walk through from the Plaza to the Court would be the logical entrance. Unless it's so crowded that it may be better just to go in from the Rite Aid side (if they even decide to open that door).

    Who's going to be there the night before? The KoP mall is just too popular to attempt a 6am arrival. They'll be hundreds there already.
    In fact I can't guess how early you'd have to be there to be first in line.
    I'd have to be out of there by 1pm and I just don't know if that's a guarantee no matter how early I get there....

    I was thinking of getting there by 5am with a couple friends, one of them has to be at work by 7:30 or not long after, think he'll make it? Maybe I'll go earlier, what was the earliest people were lined up last year?

    If you've already preordered, why are you going to either location, just so you can pat yourself on the back that you preordered instead of reserved?

    maybe we can get a group together here to meet in KOP at Midnight. i don't mind waiting all night but i don't want to be there alone (though i doubt that will be the case anyway) and maybe we can come up with a plan to bring certain things (snacks, drinks, etc). i know it sounds dorky but its a thought

    I think midnight is too early. A bunch of us are coming at about 5 to watch the sunrise and do an iPhone dance. Should be a blast.
