    I would have lined up, but I'm going with the EIP from T-mobile.

    Gonna be a tsunami up at domain. Doubt Barton Creek letting people in yet, but maybe some started a line outside in the rain.

    Typically Domain Security doesn't let people line up until like 4 or 5 am now I believe. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Same might be true for Barton but not sure there...but no freakin way would I be in line with the Monsoon that's coming

    This is accurate. I waited at the iPhone 4 launch at The Domain and started queuing up around 4 am. It was pretty spartan, until security let us queue, and there was a mad rush to the line. I decided to skip all that this year and order online. So much easier to have it delivered to my door. :cool:

    Right on. Just makes more sense to set your alarm for 2 AM and wake up, click a few buttons, and have it delivered to you at home or work. I don't see any benefit of waiting in line besides getting the phone in the morning vs the afternoon and hanging out with all the Apple Geeks.

    For me, it's a matter of work, too. I'm a teacher with a job now, not a kid just outta college. Ain't nobody got time for that. ;)

    Bummed I was up at 2am to order 6+ and site was down. Ended up not being able to get an order in till the next day when it was 3-4 week wait.

    If you want it, the domain is the best bet. Their store is ***** huge and they will have tons of phones there. It's also in the middle of all the tech in Austin, and I know that they'll have lots of phones of all the versions there.

    Posting from The Domain. Line will unofficially be allowed starting at midnight due to demand. There's a list of who arrived here that will have priority when the line forms. I would say there's about 40 people here in their cars. Due to complaints APD and Simon properties security is in full, visible force.

    I may try and stop by during my lunch hour but something tells me its not even worth it haha. Oh well I just wanna try the 6 and 6+ anyways. Plus I'm not authorized on my business account to make changes so God only knows what hops I'd have to go through.

    Best of luck to you all and I hope you get the device you're after!

    How bad is the line at the Domain? ATT at research said they will only get really few iPhone 6+ models. It was like one black 128GB/ one black 64Gb etc...also not all colors for the plus model.

    If there's already too many people, I guess I will have to aim for October...
