    I guess this is a bit of a sneaky question but... What time are you planning on pitching your tent?

    I was pretty furious that the networks here in the UK wheren't doing pre-orders, but then again it's probably a better situation than in a lot of other nations.

    Anyway, I've called ahead to check stock at a local o2 store in London and i've designed plans for a 3-4am start to the day...
    a) Earliest time public transport will allow.
    b) I would have had a rest less night anyway...

    What time will you be pitching out? Are you at the store already?

    Live updates?? (I will try and keep one when I hit the road...)

    Are you going to be a Walk-In? Just letting you know only people with reservations can get one on Thursday now, AT&T sucks.

    Yes, walk-in. I'm not going to an AT&T store; I'd never do that. Apple store all the way.

    heading over around 6:00AM, to work that is because I got mine this afternoon.

    Sorry to be a jerk couldn't resist. :D

    but on a serious note my friends are leaving around 3:30AM or so.

    The closest Apple store is 35 miles away. Extremely depressing since I have classes at 8 and can't make it to an Apple store so far away and back in time for classes.

    I'll be at my apple store at about 2am and I'll likely find someone to go with, so waiting in line won't be as boring. It sucks that the at&t store 10 mins away from my house isn't gonna have any, so I have to drive 90 minutes to an apple store.

    5:00 a.m. Hope they have coffee, donuts, and bagels like they did for the iPad launch.

    I was going to go with a friend or my girlfriend, but I think it'll be fun to rough it out alone. I'll have my netbook (11 hour battery life) and a whole season of Grey's Anatomy. I'll be fine :)


    Yikes! I have like 6 within 40 miles, the one I'm going to being about 20 miles away, but I'm off work on Thursday.

    Don't people realize that it says you have the phone held for all of Thursday? Is it really that likely that anyone with a reservation won't get one Thursday, regardless of when you go? I was just planning on going around lunchtime, not getting there especially early....

    I'm going to the Apple Store around 5am, since that's when mall security will allow a line to start forming. I don't know how all of you are going so early or the night before... is that allowed everywhere but here?

    Also, why the hell are so many people with reservations lining up ridiculously early? You people will get your phones! You reserved! I'm a walkin so please let me get mine. lol

    I'm not going until the afternoon to get my reserved iPhone. Unfortunately, I have to work in the morning and I'm DEF. not taking off for it, since I reserved it. I have until the end of the day to get it.

    Exactly. Lol. I don't understand why these reserved people are showing up THAT early. Lol. I guess they just want their phone early. If I had time, I'll show up early, too. But not 4AM and 5AM early, though.

    Seriously. I'd much rather sleep in and just go get it right when I wake up. The ONLY reason I'm going as early as mall security allows is because the "no white phones avialable" at pre-order time threw me off so much, I didn't know what to do at that point and before I could make a decision the date on pre-orders online was mid July already! So now I have to go as a lame ass walk-in'er. LOL :p

    Probably heading to the AT&T store by my work at 5am, open at 7am, and hope to be at work by 8am. Now that you can't get a phone at AT&T stores without having pre-ordered it i am hoping it wont be a bad line.
