    I was first in line for the last one, and hope to be up near the front for this one. It was a fun time to hang out and read the east coast feeds together as we waited for the release on the West Coast. Who's in with me?

    I didn't even know there was an Apple store at Southcenter. If the lines are going to be shorter, I might make the trek. U-Village is a zoo.

    The line for the original iphone went way out the door and down the parking lot, but it didn't really start growing till 1 or 2 pm.

    I spoke with the store and they do not have any details yet even though AT&T has said it will be an 800am launch. I will post as soon as I know the Apple Stores launch details. She is supposed to call me.

    Damn, I don't think I'm hardcore enough. I was thinking 4am earliest. I do have to work that day.

    Interestingly, there is no other mentioning of the U. Village store under the Meetups section.

    I waited in-line at the Bellevue Square store last year. I heard the Alderwood Mall is going to be less crowded.

    I am trying Southcenter this year. I was number one at U. Village after waiting for 28 hours. I am not doing that again. This year about 6am.

    What do you guys think?

    Thats what I was thinking. Maybe a bit earlier just to be sure an early riser doesn't swing by with 200 people in tow, hehe.

    OK, so long story short I got bored. I was at a client of mine that is near the mall and about to head home for the day. Then I figured, oh well, I'm just gonna go home and read macforums all night anyway so I might as well do it on Apples Wireless. So I am here with 18 hours and 52 mins till I get my new iphone 3g. Yeah I know I am crazy. I have another buddy coming down in a few hours that is camping out too. So come down, come early lets have a party!!!!!

    I'd like to be there first thing in the morning, but seeing as I'm still at work writing a goddamn brief, due tomorrow, I'm thinking I better get this done first. Post here when you leave the store, and tell us how long the line gets. I'm thinking of coming maybe 10:30 AM or 11:00 AM? First people cleared out? Line shorter? I'm hoping they won't run out -- like they didn't last year.

    I'm still up in Seattle. Just drove by the AT&T store on Capitol Hill and there were ~40 people in line outside. Struck me as a pretty short line, actually, for just 1.5 hours before launch. I'm still planning to head to Southcenter, though. More phones at the Apple store, and the two AT&T stores in the area.

    Thanks for keeping us posted. I'm most curious to know how the line grows or shrinks after 8 am (i.e. growing because interested mall sheep decide to join in the iphone madness).
