    I'm thinking about picking up my wife's phone using this process but I wanted to hear how it has worked for some of you. The store is showing the model available, but what happens after I complete checkout? Are the lines typically long once you go to pick up your reserved phone? Any insight would be great! Thanks.

    I did this process today. Cancelled my att preorders on att website and then placed 2 separate orders on Apple site with store pickup. Received email from Apple within 1 min confirming they received my order and it was processing. 45 mins later received 2 emails stating my orders were ready to be picked up.

    I printed out the first pages of those emails as it has a barcode they scan. When I got to the store there was a line specific to reservations. Waited about 3 mins In line then was with a rep getting my phones.

    I believe that once you reserve the phone successfully via apple.com you will get an e-mail saying that your iphone is ready to be picked up, and you can just stand in the other line, which is the line for those that reserved the phone online, instead of having to stand back in the regular line.
