    I decided to start a new thread for the Houston Galleria specifically (not the other Apple stores in the Houston suburbs). Who's going to be at the Apple store on Thursday?

    Most people going to the galleria are probably not on forums such as this. . . Good Luck!

    I'm sure there are some people on here who aren't driving tot the suburbs. They just haven't found my thread yet.

    A lot of people may happen to live in the suburbs, or closer to the suburbs than in the galleria area? Either way, good luck!

    I wish there was an Apple store downtown or somewhere closer to Montrose.

    I'll let you guys know how it goes tomorrow.

    I'm trying to decide which Hosuton one to go to -- the Gal is closest so...

    But how does lining up work when the store is deep inside the mall? When does the mall open?

    edit:
    ust talked to mall security doors open at 5:30am but you will not be allowed to form a line or wait in line until 7am when apple doors open.

    So you can go inside but just not line up? That doesn't make much sense. What are they going to do, make us wait in a random group?

    That's what I'm hoping for some day. It might actually make sense with the number of students in close proximity (Rice, UH, UT Houston, BCM, the rest of the Medical Center people). Right now the closest store is the Galleria which has awful traffic and it's kind of far for those of us not used to driving every day.

    afternoon galleria

    I will be there around 2pm. I cant reschedule a meeting. hopefully though, i will avoid the huge nonsense of a crowd I am expecting there to be, and get in and out in a relatively short amount of time. I wish everyone that didn't reserve an iphone good luck! and hopefully by me reserving one there is actually one reserved and I dont get shafted.

    If you could give me an update in the morning, I'd really appreciate it. I'm planning on going in at 6:30 or 7:00 am -ish.

    Glad I found this thread, was thinking of heading over there shortly but since doors don't open til 5:30 I'll wait. Received an email from apple reminding me to pick up and they'd have a dedicated line for those with reservations.

    I am about to head out. Just wondering if anybody has any updates from the Galleria before I leave. How does the line look?

    I got there at about 7, and it took just under 2 hours for everything.
    If I had waited and gone in at 8, it would have most likely taken 1.5 hours since the line was shorter then.

    Anybody else have updates? I am at work, and won't get to the store till 5pm. I have little hope of getting my reserved phone at that time, but its still worth a shot.
