    I was thinking about 6:30. What about you. Not sure how early I will be able to wake myself up!

    I don't live in Brighton, I live in Bexhill, don't know if you know where that is? About 40mins drive to Brighton. I'll be leaving my house at roughly 5. Then park and everything so it'll be about 6 - hope i'll be close to the front! I have reserved one though.

    I heard a rumour that there will be some white ones available. Hopefully I can swap my reserved black one to white :)

    Look forward to seeing you all there around 7ish. Got a reservation and a day off, so no worries with waiting.

    Am I right in thinking that those of us reserved at Churchill Sq. have only received one reservation e-mail? I've seen some people say they have got reminders, but I didn't get one of these, only the initial confirmation.

    Should be a fun day :)

    Ouch. I'll just hope it got lost in the interwebs somewhere. I have the initial reservation confirmation which will do me. If not, I guess I'll have to kick up a fuss :D

    Yeah just print it off and all should be good whether or not they have your name on the list or not :)

    Yeah, I think that's what I'll do. I have a good friend who works in the Apple store who I might be able to call upon should needs arise!

    With any luck they'll open the centre early so people can grab their places in the queue. If it's anything like the store opening, it's going to be an immense experience.

    I phoned Apple yesterday and they said the queue will start outside the H&M entrance. Then at 8am Churchill Square doors open and they let about 10 people in at a time (so there isn't a mad rush). There will also be one line for people who have reserved, one line for people who haven't :)

    Fantastic information, thanks.

    I'll be lurking around with my 'Churchill Sq.' Apple t-shirt that they gave away at launch. Hope you get a good position and good luck with your phone getting :D

    Talk about dedication :eek: :D

    Got a reservation, or hoping to pick up walk-in stock? Do they have any of those crowd barriers up yet? :D

    I'm sure the rest of us will be down to join you at a more sensible time ;)

    Arrived around 7:30 am. Queue was all the way around the rear concourse. Staff were handing out reservation tickets in the queue as I arrived. I left around 8:00 am, when I was informed that the only 5s tickets left were for 16 GB and 32 GB Space Greys.
