    ok, so instead of waiting in line at the apple store, (which i kinda want to do but not really :confused: ), anyways i wanted to know if i can get an iphone 4s via waiting in line at my local att store...im new to this getting the iphone on the first day thing...any help will be appreciatiated :)

    also the main reason i dont want to wait in line at apple store at 3am is because im under my dads plan, and i want to split from it but still want my old number, so he doesnt want to wait in line...any suggestions on that? can i just write down his acct info and then apple will do the changes for me? and if so what exactly do i need? :eek: thanks

    have him add you as an "authorized" user. (you can do this over the phone) this way you can make changes yourself in store.

    Yes you can but be aware that they won't have as many iPhone 4S's as the Apple Store.

    is it worth it waiting in line at the apple store or does it really not matter?

    EDIT: i just changed it and it says "this user can can make authorized changes at a retail store", will apple count as a retail store? also will i need to know the password and my dads account info like his social and stuff?

    if i call my local store will they provide me with info on when i should get in line, or how many they have in stock?

    Waiting at the AT&T store is probably the best idea. Apple stores will have the longest lines

    Granted, the AT&T will still be long
