    I know a thread similar to this already exists, but it's really long. So I've decided we should make one dedicated to Manchester...

    I'll personally be going to the Apple Store (Trafford Centre I think) after Lunch, so aiming to be there no later than 3pm. Hopefully I won't have to spend 3 hours queuing, but we'll see!

    What does everyone else plan to do, store and time-wise?

    Am I right in thinking the TC Store is bigger than the Arndale one? Memory is a bit hazy.

    I'll be joining you in the queue at around 5pm Will!

    If you want a coffee off me, you could save a space for a guy with an 'I'm a mac' t-shirt ;)

    Will be going to the Trafford Centre, not sure what time though: waiting to see if we hear anything about stock levels etc. before I decide. Will probably turn up sometime between 3 and 7. :)

    There is also an O2 shop and a Carphone Warehouse (I think 2 of these) at the Trafford Centre. If the queues are big at one of these try one of the others. They will all be selling the iPhone.

    I have it on VERY good authority that stock levels will be massive, and that no one will be disappointed. Also, at the TC there are slight security concerns after last weeks queues, and that new measures will be in place.

    ROBLAWTON....are you the chap who was at the front end of the Leopard queue last week??
