    Hi guys,

    If you are queuing for the iPhone 5 tonight/tomorrow morning what are your reasons for going to an Apple Shop rather than going to a phone shop like O2/Orange? Im guessing the main one is you want to buy the phone outright?

    Just wondering :)

    I'm across the pond, but at least in the states, all Apple stores will have a pretty large inventory of phones tomorrow. Not all carrier stores will have phones, and the ones that do will have a limited inventory.

    In the UK at least, the only way to buy an unlocked one is direct from an Apple Store, buy it anywhere else and its locked to a single network.
