    No, he's 100% right. Lining up for this product is the dumbest concept since spray-on hair. There will be plenty. Just relax and show up at a reasonable time.

    I feel the exact same way. Ill come to an AT&T store around 430..if there are too many people, i might try another one or an apple store.

    If i dont get an iPhone, i wont cry.



    funny as hell to think that people are camping out/standing in line for 12 hours so that they can have the chance to spend $600+

    see you're thinking of it as spending money. the campers are thinking about having one of the most hyped and looked at products in a long time. and they plan to be the first people with said device. its a game of saying 'well i got it first, and i waited for it".

    friday should be interesting to say the least.

    I'm still going to be checking when they open, and at noon. If there's no line, I'm starting one. I have plans starting around 9pm, so I want to get in and out as quickly as possible. If that means waiting around all day, so be it.

    I didn't tell you to stay home. Nor does the article imply that you should. I'm just saying that you may not want to waste your time camping out overnight or standing in line all day. You can still go buy the phone.

    But if you camp out, you are also guaranteed to get an iPhone.:)

    judging by the messages on this forum, i'd suppose lining for iphone serves some social function.

    I talked to a friend of mine who works at a AT&T store. His suggestion was to come by around 8, 8:30. He said by then any line would have been helped and it might be a 5 to 10 minute wait.

    why are we inclined to believe that there will be plenty of units on hand?

    I for one will take no chances and will line up no later than noon if nobody else is, but 8 am is more likely. I will get some sun!
