    How does one wait "online?" Do you mean "in line?" Or, to be less ambiguous "queue?"

    This will be the first time I wait in line. . . Probably I hate first batch products :rolleyes:

    Lol @ "Online" Uh I think we've been doing that since 4 months ago.

    People in the northeast, especially New York think they are standing on an imaginary line on the ground. He probably also suffers of this problem, and means "in line" and not "online."

    The day before it comes out? Please don't. We, the iPhone crowd don't want to resemble the Pre's success in line turn outs by showing up the day before launch...

    Just do a drive by every now and then of your Apple/AT&T store to scope things out. But you do know that as soon as someone lines up, people are quickly to follow. (It has been in the last 2 iPhone releases).

    you guys really believe there will be a new iPhone?

    i mean, we cant be so sure yet, lining up now is really a risk ( well maybe not for some of you, hardcores )

    of course there's gonna be a new iPhone. you have to be an idiot to think that there WON'T be a new one coming out this summer.

    anyway, i'll be in line :D. no more than 2 hours though.

    i thought this was a joke thread asking how many people were going to wait in front of their computer to press the "order now" button when the iphone comes out.

    i thought it was an amusing dig at the "who will wait in line" threads.

    i gave humanity too much credit again.

    shame.

    Yeah. I wish I would have gotten the number of that cute girl who I stood in line with for 4 hours that worked at Stingaree as a waitress. :(

    I'm going to wait in-line (in defense of the OP "on line OR in line" depends on where you are from.)

    Me and the hubs, and our oldest son have done it the past two releases. I love meeting all the other fanboys/girls.

    As long as you bring your comfort stuff: blanket, chair, laptop, and lot's of coffee it's pretty fun.
