I live in Los Angeles and I was hoping sometime this week. How was it last year? I basically would like to go when the wait is under an hour. I'm as anxious as anyone else, but I don't want to spend a day buying one. I went to the one in Century City yesterday afternoon and they even had a separate long line for people who don't want an iphone, lol. BTW, the stores just opened for anyone planning to go today.
