    I just called my local Apple store 918-249-7800 (option 5) and they said they would be opening at 8AM to sell the iPhone 3G

    that would be the whole reason they're opening up early.

    I'll definitely be heading to an Apple store then, since they'll be opening at 8 am as well. I plan on calling or stopping by some time this week to see if they'll do the pre-credit check as well

    I called my Apple Store:
    Apple Store, Sagemore 500 Route 73 South Marlton, NJ 08053 (856) 810-3712. Driving Directions & Map. Store hours: Mon - Sat: 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

    I spoke with a sales rep. I was told they "believe" the store will open at the regular time Friday the 11th at 10AM.

    Did you speak with someone or was it a recording?

    I just called the flag ship store in SF (which is the one closest to me) and they said as of right now they are still opening at 10am. She said however that is subject to change at anytime.

    I wasn't able to get any more information then that.

    If your apple store is inside a mall, they have to get permission to open the store/mall earlier. It's entirely possible that some may open at 8 and some at 10.

    Yes. Stores in New Zealand open at midnight, so that's at least a 24 hour lead for all parts of the US.

    Maybe we need a photo stream thread for folks getting their 3G iPhone and taking a picture or two of the conditions in store... Beats a thread with pictures of non iPhones...

    everyone needs to keep in mind that the Apple meeting was just earlier today, so it you're calling right now, they're not necessarily going to have the latest information yet. You need to give it a little time to trickle down the pipe to everyone so they actually know what's going on.

    I seriously rather go to an Apple store than to an AT&T one. I hope this is true because I can go really early and wait in line since I don't have work until mid-afternoon that day :)

    Good idea. I really am wondering if the white iPhone will come in a white box though.
