    need to show up around 30 mins earlier because it's my lunch time. Just wondering if anyone has any insight to my success probability If I show up early. I don't really have much time to wait around.

    They will make you wait until all the people with proper appointments have been helped.

    My appointment this morning was for 8:30am-9am. I showed up at 8am. Was done by 8:35. So go and try. Apple Store in Miami Beach BTW. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks that makes sense. Maybe I'll wait until I get off work.

    Indeed, there is still benefit on going early.
    I showed up at 9 for my 9 to 9:30 appointment. My sale receipt was time-stamped 9:36.

    I showed up at 11:30 for my 4:30 window because I had some free time - they said they were running 30min behind already and wouldn't check me in. :p

    Fortunately I reserved what seems to the the LEAST popular phone, silver 7 32GB, so I'm not worried about them running out of stock. :)

    Scheduled at 1:30. Got there on time, and there was a line. Was done by 2:20.

    There was a guy I was talking to that went late for his appt and everything was ok.

    Showed up for my 4:30 reservation at 3:30, left with phone at 4:15. Super easy.

    No they won't. They don't care. Especially since most people are showing up later than their appointment.

    Hey that's South Beach I'm from there Did you have fun fighting the Rich Brazilians trying to buy without Preorders and worried that their flight was leaving soon ?

    LoL nah. Nothing but rich Brazilians and Venezuelans lined up for no reason. When I got there they looked at me weird like if I was skipping the line. The employee told them he has a reservation. Silly people must've missed the memo or just stupid.
