    I'm probably going to be trying for a non-reserve phone, but i'm not sure how early i'm going to be getting there. Probably not all night

    I'll be there as early as early as I can. Anyone know where the line will form? Will they make us wait outside until a certain time?

    I am not 100% sure were the line will be but I did some research on it and I found an article written for the 3gs launch that said "The Altamonte Mall says its doors will open at 6:45 a.m. and people can line up outside the mall entrance near Sears and the Elephant Bar before that." I don't go to that mall very often but if I am not mistaken that is the closest entrance to the apple store.

    Oh and here is the article I found that in http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/te...-s-on-friday-heres-what-you-need-to-know.html

    I plan on being there around 10pm or so. I am hoping at that time there wont be too many people in line so my chances of getting one is pretty good!

    I'll probably plan on getting there around 5AM or so... save me a spot! :D

    I was there for 3GS launch and the entrance next to Elephant Bar is where everyone was lined up.

    According to the Apple site they said:


    So I think that since there's a "Limit 2 per person" you and your wife should be fine with your 1 reservation. ;)

    worth a shot, but from when i talked to the guy there to verify my reservation was still there he said that if we got there early (inline) maybe we could get two, i assume he ment walk up for the 2nd

    This is my first time getting in line for an Apple product. I feel a little silly, but what the heck, I have to do this stuff at least once in a lifetime :) Hope the wait is not too long.

    See you guys there in the AM

    i went to the mall and spoke with apple and security. Security says the mall doors will open at 6am. No one will be allowed to line up outside until 5:45. If anyone sees anything different please post here and let us know.

    I'm not too sure.... it's probably big, but they say they will for sure get their phones. you'd have all day to come pick it up.

    the line was absolutely ridiculous. i was probably roughly 90th in line and just left after we found out they were letting in 10 people in the non-preorder line per hour. at that rate, i would've been there for at least 5 + hours. insane.

    i'll be at an AT&T store monday night to get one there.
