    Just kidding, lol
    Have fun. :) I personally would not be able to make it through a whole day just sitting there.

    You're there early! I camped out for the 3G S, 4, and both iPads but unfortunately due to school it wasn't really an option this year, so I just ordered online.

    Not to mention, my iPhone 4 experience was horrible. I got in line at around 5pm on the day before launch, and didn't leave until about 2:30pm the next day. All due to Apple's reserve/non-reserve fiasco.

    I did for the 3G and 4... I was going to for the 4s but plans fell apart when I slept through the day and forgot the date :eek:.. Probably will for the 5 or 6 or what ever they call the next one.

    I've got mine coming via UPS but I've got a few friends who are camping out. I'm going to go over there about 4am Friday morning just to hang out for a little while. It should be fun.

    I'll probably go at 4 - 5 a.m. on thursday to make sure I get one. Hopefully there isn't a line already.

    5 hours ain't so bad since I can do school work in the meantime while I am there...

    Gotta get some pepper spray though in case someone tries to cut in line ahead of me ;)

    There will be. From what I've experienced from early releases (mainly video games and other products, working at Best Buy for a while) is that people will come out EXCESSIVE amounts of time before the release time / date.

    When Black Ops came out we had people in line at 5PM for a midnight release... Black Friday line (which amounted to over 400 people in the end) started at 3PM... the day before.

    Good luck! You guys are bigger fans than I am. There is simply no gadget on earth I have seen yet that would make me camp out overnight to get. I just ordered mine online and have to "suffer" through waiting until UPS delivers it to me.

    Its 12:50 right now and I just decided to drive around to the local AT&T stores and I went to 4 different ones and NO ONE is in line. Feel kinda lame but already got permission from the wife so I'm just gonna hang out in the car and play with my iPhone 4 one last night

    A+ for the effort. Like richpjr, I don't have the courage to do such. I pre-ordered though there are a few cell stores within my neighborhood.
