    Anyone else getting up early doors for the o2 store in the Howard center?

    I thought 06:00 should be fine - store opens at 08:00

    :)

    Realistically - I think I can aim for about 6 - I can't see too many people getting there before then can you?

    If you're not upgrading mate then o2 is probably not for you as you know they're only taking upgrade customers on launch day

    Cheers

    Difficult to know how big the crowds are going to be isn't it?

    I'm relying on current iPhone and a good old fashioned iPod for entertainment! Maybe something that doesn't need power as well, a magazine or something. The man in the shop told me they should be doing something to "celebrate" the launch as well so interested to see what that will be...!

    It's really difficult to tell, I guess the question is how many mad people like us will there be in welwyn garden city...?! :)

    Hopefully not many!

    However at the 3G launch there must have been nearly 100 in the queue by 08:00

    I gave up!

    :)
