    This is true. at least Aventura / Dadeland are indoor stores.

    Did Dadeland open early last year?

    i bought my 3g at the Falls and they were open an hour or 2 early. I think at 8am instead of 10am. I am thinking that Dadeland might be a better option this year.

    Good call about the indoor mall.

    I was thinking about doing Lincoln Road since it's just such a nice area to be in, but it rained when i got my iPhone 3G there... might have to hit up Aventura.

    Although if it's pre-ordered I'd be able to walk right in, right? No waiting?

    Like a lot of us, I planned on pre-ordering a white 32gb today. I hope they'll be available by launch.

    Anybody else getting a white one?

    I spent ten hours trying to pre-order today. FINALLY got it to go through at Aventura. Don't know how long I'll have to wait so I figured Aventura would be best so that I can wait inside of a mall (out of the sun and rain).

    I reserved for pickup at Dadeland. Don't know when I will show up to stand in line. I assume they will be letting people into the mall to stand in line.

    Anyone familiar with the Dadeland store procedure for lining up? The store is in a mall so do people just form a line outside the main doors?

    I just called the dadeland store and all the girl knew as of this point is that they would have a line for pre-orders/reservations and another for walkins.

    No idea what time the mall will let people in, but they are opening at 7am.

    I don't have a pre order, and I was wondering which apple store was the best to line up at.

    What do you guys think about trying the Lincoln Rd. store. Has anyone waited in line there before?

    Haha, thanks for the heads up.

    That leaves me Dadeland or Aventura, but I'm leaning towards Dadeland.

    I was really hoping that I wouldn't have to wait in line that long but to be honest I will be driving by Dadeland and the Falls after work on Wednesday. If I see a line I am going to eat, change my clothes and come on back. It's going to be a crazy day!

    I did Lincoln Rd for the iPhone 3G. I remember they got more iPhones that year than any other Miami area store so if you don't have a pre-order it's definitely the place to go. You have to wait outside though, and I was waiting forever. That's why I went with Aventura this year. I have a pre-order but I know I'll still have to wait and I want to wait inside.

    Not a chance. White iPhone 4's are 2 to 3 weeks out

    I kinda wish I did this now but I never got an iPhone at launch so I figured it might be fun at the store. I bet I'm wrong :(

    The Falls

    I talked to three different Apple reps at the falls to get the scoop and they all told me the same thing:

    1) The store opens at 7am
    2) there will be two lines. One for reserves, one for walk in.
    3) IF YOU HAVE A RESERVE IT WILL ONLY BE HELD UNTIL 3pm. After that it will be recycled either to walk ins.

    I plan on being there when they open just to be on the safe side.
