    How are the iPhone lines in Gainesville @ AT&T stores (I guess only option since there is no Apple Store here)? I'm new here (College student), so I have no idea if the lines would be big there or not.

    Hey there, Florida. I'm in Tampa, and typically here the carrier lines are pretty short, but the Apple store lines are insanity. Over 1000 people by the time the store opened for the 4S.

    Can't say for sure in Gainesville, but if there are few choices of retail locations, I'd assume the lines will be long. Probably some college student line parties.

    Nobody, and I mean nobody can figure this out.

    You would need to know how many people in the area really want the new phone.

    You would need to know know how many they will have available for sale that day.

    What happened last time would be of marginal value as well.

    by the way, other places will have them for sale. Walmart, Sams, Best Buy, etc.

    Go Gators, graduate of 08 here.

    There will be some lines there, small town with lots of people and techie students....hell I was one of em. My secret is to go to radio shack or Best Buy, avoid ATT...just buy the a middle man with no added fees.

    I'm from Tampa too, so I know the insanity.

    I was just wondering how they were in past years... to the person above who said nobody will know.

    Thanks for the advice, but probably sticking to AT&T, but go Gators!

    Is there an Apple store besides the one in International Plaza? I remember going there when it opened.
