    So, I had to wait for me mums to get off her work (she got off early for me) because I sort of, well, the long and short of it is I don't got me a license right now. She came home, got herself fit, and we took off on our hour long drive to the nearest iPhone retailer (an AT&T store, a small one at that yes). And, we got there, I saw me a line and got a tad bit worried, but not much because I was #20, and I figured that'd be decent yeah. I got there at 4 EST, which was an hour earlier than I would have had me mum not gotten off work early for me. I whipped out my SR MBP (17") and made some people jealous, as I sure like to do ;), and waited until about 5:30 EST when an AT&T guy came out and started laying out the plans for all of us. I even made some mates in line, a guy from the Phillipines in front of me, and a guy from the town I am from (crazy considering my town is of >5,000). Anyways, the bloke came out and told us that five people at a time would go inside, and that he could only tell us that the amount they had was 'enough', which we would all soon find out was not the truth at all, but rather a bloody lie that he told so people wouldn't give him any issues, but give the people inside issues when they realised there was a sell out. So I got in there around 6:45, and the computer system crashed three times, I got out of the store at around 7:30 with the LAST 8gb iPhone, a case (Belkin something or rather) and a car charger. As I left, I hear an employee say 'three more 4gigs'. So I thought, 'Wow, I got meself some luck and a good mum.' As I walked out, some lady said, 'Look at that brat making him buy him a $600 phone', So I just said, 'Enjoy your iPhone less-ness, they're almost out, bloody hag.' She shut up. I got in the car and almost soiled my knickers. Me mum rules, even though I pay for the whole thing (as I well should), her leaving work early got me what I wanted, an 8gb iPhone.

    Hope all you had as good of luck as I, cheers.
