    What's you're plans?, are you going to camp out at Apple or other retailers, what time do you think you're going to show up? I myself did not reserve and am trying to pick up a 16gb in black without a reserve around 3 or 4 a.m, Apple opens at 7 a.m

    I'm holding out for the white. "Second half of July" isn't too long of a wait. Plus, a lot of the buzz will be gone by then, so it'll be easier to walk into an Apple store and buy it.

    Personally I was lucky enough to reserve a phone for in-store pickup. That being said, I'm showing up at around 5:30 or so, mostly because there aren't many apple stores near me and this apple store is 'the' apple store for several towns in a fairly large radius. Honestly, it all depends on your store. I would head over there sometime today and ask them about prior launches to get a feeling of how much activity your store gets on launch days. Information about other stores (including the info I gave you about my own, now that I think about it...) is more or less irrelevant to your own personal situation. I would think that 3 or 4 AM (a big window mind you there when talking about these launch days) would put you somewhere near the front of the 'middle' portion of the line.

    There are about 15 people already in line here. I may go get in line around 10pm or so since I have a reservation and have to be at work at 9am tomorrow morning.

    Is anyone apple store at a a mall? How would you do that? Camp outside the doors by the mall then run to the apple store when doors open?

    My apple store is at a mall. There is a certain door that everyone lines up at. They open just that door at 6:30 and an apple employee escorts the line to make sure its orderly and people arrive at the store the same way they were lined up outside.

    I'm not camping out. I know I won't be getting one on launch day, but hopefully after the initial rush dies down, I'll be able to reserve one for pick up in-store, or, even better, just be able to walk in and buy one. I can't wait to check em out on display tomorrow :D

    I'm going to see what the situation looks like after the mall closes tonight. If there isn't a huge crowd, i'll go home and check back in an hour or two. rinse and repeat till i see a few people, then i'll jump in.

    It's kind of rainy right now, it's supposed to clear up though. Should be interesting to see what happens.

    Waiting for white.

    I've been using the original iPhone for the past 3 years, with it lagging and its battery dying for over a year now. I skipped the 3G and 3GS because I didn't feel like they were enough of an upgrade. I've waited this long, but the next 3-4 weeks will be agony.

    My Network wont be getting the iPhone until mid July anyway so I'm happy to wait, should mean I get a chance to see what the white phone looks like next to the black one. Also we might also know whats going on with all this dropped call business due to a badly placed antenna
