    Sorry I don’t know why but my grammar was so bad with those reply’s I sent. For the 6s Plus I went at 4 PM the night before. Not worth it. That was at AT&T. I have no idea how bad the lines will be. I preordered but would come 11/17. So not risking leaving the mall without an iPhone X!

    Mall security said to camp in the courtyard between Barnes and Nobel and Cheesecake Factory. There will be signs and stuff. So just head over to the courtyard.

    That’s awesome. Thank you! Would you mind saying if there’s anyone else there by the time you get there? I won’t be there until probably 11pm.

    So I lucked out and my preorder which was coming in 12/18 shipped for tomorrow, but I spoke to Apple and here’s my tip. Bring a computer or phone. At 3:00 am, they are doing reservations to pick up. You can reserve the phone you want and pickup in store. They will have some just for folks waiting too but if you can reserve and have it waiting for you why not? Good luck.

    So the implication is if you can get a reservation, they will have additional stock for pick up tomorrow?

    No what they said is they have some in the store set aside for people just waiting on line in a first come, first serve, and a second stash for people who go online and made a reservation.

    Thats what they said...Im just passing it along in case it does help anyone. Id wait on line anyway, but maybe you can bet lucky and go hone and get a few hours sleep before opening at 8. I know in years past they had reservations for day 2, but it may be true.

    I’m now here. So far no sign of anything or anyone. Gonna call and ask what time they will be putting up those line formers.

    Was told “I don’t think there will be a line because people ordered them online” so I’ll be sitting in my car waiting for someone to show up.

    Really? So you’re the only one there? Is that what Apple or the mall said? Good luck.

    That’s what the mall security said. However the person said last night the line forms between Cheesecake Factory and Barnes and Nobel. So maybe the person yesterday knew more than the guy today.
