    Are you allowed to have someone wait in line for you and then take their place at the last minute? In NYC, apple 5th avenue store.

    I doubt it. In Boston, they had security guards all over the place and everything was very tight. You couldn't go into the store without talking to either security or an Apple person at the front. You waited in line outside abd were brought in by groups. Then, once you were in the store (after waiting in the "iphone only" line), there was a security guard who would escort the next group to the next line, where there were more security guards. I would imagine 5th ave is similar, if not more security...

    I don't see why not, in front of me in line were a husband and wife who took turns, this is no different.

    I don't see any reason that you couldn't. I further don't see any reason that security would even know. At the 5th Ave store, once you get to the front of the line outside, they give you a ticket. Once you have your ticket, you can go in to the store and get in another line, at which point someone will come ask you for your ticket. Or you could leave, fly to Paris, spend the night, return to NYC and then go get in the second line with your ticket in hand. The point is -- once you have the ticket, you could give it to someone else, sell it, etc.

    How long is the line at the 5th Ave store these days?
