    You think it will be hard to get a new iphone. I want to get the 16g white. Do you think they will sell out quickly??

    With the implementation of having to sign up on spot, I don't believe they'll sell out, also from what I heard, they put a cap on how many you can buy, 3 or 4 and that's per family..

    No way will I consider camping out for the privilege of buying a phone. I am excited to get the new IPhone, but I'm sure there will be plenty to go around. I think part of the reason for the July 11th release date is so they can have plenty of units ready to go without experiencing any shortages. If I get my phone the next day...that will be fine.

    Apple can't afford not to produce enough of the new phones, especially when you consider they've been out of stock on the current model for several weeks.

    I'll do what I gotta' do! I'll probably show up a couple hours before they open. I have two choices, since there's two Apple Stores and ten+ AT&T Stores within a few miles of each other. :p

    I'm definitely getting mine on launch day when the store opens but I won't camp out for it. Plus I live in Nebraska and there's not too many people and if the apple store is out, I can always hit up AT&T.....

    A glimpse of hope about being able to order online!! :)

    If not, then I'll get in line a few hours in advance if they start selling in the a.m. but if they dont sell til 6pm, I wont be able to wait at all due to work and will just hope they have some left after 7pm.

    See I would do that, but not sure if I would need to bring I.D. with me to an O2 store as I don't have any form yet except my debit card.

    If you're camping out....please, wear a "Im with Stupid" t-shirt so people walking by going about thier lives can steer clear.

    That way, everyone in line will have one on and it will just be passed right down the line.

    no effing way. I'm so against these ridiculous lines. Anyway it will take twice as long with instore activation. Anyway I don't think there will be a shortage anyway. I'll get mine on the 12th mornining. There is no way im going near an apple store on the 11 th. There are no points for first place

    Do you get a t-shirt for buying on the first day? :D But I agree, I'll probably swing by an AT&T store Friday the 11th to check out the line. If it's long I'll check again at lunch or after work. Worst case I'll get the phone on Saturday the 12th.

    Nope, not camping out. I refuse to camp out for any sort of product. These things will still be there the next day. :)

    Also, I'm hedging my bets by going to an AT&T store instead of an Apple store. Yes, I know HERESY, but I figure my chances will be much better there than an Apple store.

    I might....depends how I feel the day before. Granted a long line would likely be there by then.

    Doesn't anyone remember what happened during the initial launch? Idiots spent days in line and the phones were readily available pretty much everywhere for weeks.

    There's the new Flagship Boston Apple store and a Company owned ATT store, on the same street here in Boston.

    So we shall see, I'll probably end up at the Apple store though.

    Same here with the amount of stores near by... Im not gonna go early Ill just wait for everyone to get theirs then go after the lines are gone. Every AT&T store or Apple store wont be sold out by me I guarantee it.
