So who's up for this next week? Had a good turnout at the iPhone 4 launch.
I'm thinking of queuing up although I have never done it before so not sure what to expect.
I queued for 'the new iPad' on the spare of the moment and after a few hours wished I had come more prepared.
Think I will head down for iPhone 5 launch as well but this time will bring a flask of coffee!
I suspect I'll be there. Not sure about time though.
I have been to most iPhone and iPad launches in Belfast since the store opened. With an 8am launch time I intend to be there around 5:30am which is normally enough time to get a decent place in the queue.
Do you guys think there will be a queue at the Three store near by?
there was a big que outside the o2 store at victoria square when the 4 was launched, im not sure if three actually offered the 4 when it was 1st released
If you are there for 6am you will be fine.
I'll probably be there for 5.30. Was alright for 4S launch, I'm hopin it'll be the same for the 5!
I thought I would be fine to just turn up at the Three store when it opens at 8am as they have booked me in to pick up my phone at that time??
I'd imagine there will have been quite a few people booked to pick up at the 3 store seen as how they probably have the best prices/tariffs
I'm really not one for queuing. I'll nip by in the morning as it's near work. If it's busy I'll come back later or the following day.
Do you think there will be much stock in Victoria Square? Whats a guaranteed time to arrive at to get a phone?
I'm hoping to pop-in about 10 and see if I can get a 32GB Black.
If not then I'll wait for my pre-order that's due October.
I used to love midnight launches of consoles and games but I'm older now with kids and don't have the time or patience for queues.
They can be great though because you're surrounded my like-minded people.
they had enough for the iphone 4 launch and they had to turn people away because the store was closing and gave everyone still in line a ticket for the next day
How long would i be expected to queue for Mikey?
I will have to be back to pick-up my son at 12.
Is it possible that you can queue all day?
not too sure, i was there from about 6am and got my phone about 9:30 but the o2 servers crashed at 8am so there was an extra 45 minute wait for that to be fixed
Thanks Mikey, so will I need my nano-sim with me when I go to buy my iphone from the apple store?
I'd get one just to be safe but apple should supply them
I'll be there early doors I've gotta be away from there by 9.30 to get to an appt... fingers crossed.
Was any one at the Three store in Vic. Sq. last year for the 4s launch? Just trying to figure out when I should turn up if I wanna be there for opening (8am) as I gotta get to work after. I'm hoping as there is the Apple Store, a couple of CPW and various other network stores near by that the queue won't be too bad.
I'm thinking of coming from Limerick. First time in Belfast too, which could be ... fun!
That's quite a journey for an iPhone.
thats devotion for you.. I'm glad the store is a 2 min walk from my office
Its just cheaper. I'm still in contract, o2 wont upgrade me, and I can offset most of the cost my selling my 4s. Still a 7 hour journey is not enticing at all
