    br.

    i'm gonna make the drive to camp out at
    the apple store in baton rouge. it's bound
    to be a little more exciting than going to
    an at&t store like i did for the first launch
    last year.

    Last years launch?

    So you were at the 2007 launch at ATT store, was there alot of peeps there?
    I want to go where theres no line. I have to go straight to work from the store. Do you think people will mind if I wait in line then my wife joins me later after people are behind me?

    i was at the att store in lake charles. i camped out the night before. by noon the day of launch there were 5 people in line. by the time they went on sale at 6, there were 60+ people in line. as long as your wife is not buying a phone, people will not mind. if she is, that is just basically cutting.

    metairie

    I was thinking one of the Metairie AT&T stores (versus apple store in baton rouge). I went to the Clearview/I-10 service road store to "pre-register" (as was recommended by AT&T) ....and the employees there looked at me like I fell off a boat. Clueless. They also suggested that I plan on camping out, as there was an overnight line for the original iPhone launch. What AT&T store do you think would have the least traffic? The only other one I know of off-hand is by Lakeside. Thoughts, comments, suggestions?

    Unfortunately I don't have the link, but at&t's website has a store locator, so you can scope out all the locations beforehand. I'm just going to drive by all the at&t stores in my area until I find one with the shortest line.

    Luckily, for the next iPhone launch we'll have our own Apple Store in Lakeside! Word!

    All out

    A friend wanted one, he went to Clearview Mall AT&T store, Cheateu AT&T Store, Williams Blvd AT&T Store, and another AT&T store around Bonnabel and they were allout. I was like dam, told him he had to go all the way to Baton Rouge.

    However, the Cheateu AT&T Store clerk did say they (that store) might get some in 2-3 days.
