I have a check-in window of 8-8:30 AM, right when the store opens Friday. How will this work? Are there going to be two lines at the store friday? Walk-ins and pre-orders?

Do I need to get there early to get out of the store in a reasonable amount of time? I'm mainly wondering if they overbook these time windows (especially the store opening time window.)

Yup 2 lines. I have the same time 8am and have every year. Get there at 7:50 and you will be let in first with the other 8am’s and be out in 10 min. It’s very easy

Also, another question: Can an account manager on Verizon account pick up the phone ordered for that line?

If you can't make your window, can you just go in anytime & pick up the phone?

I have a Friday pick up time scheduled, but I may not be able to get there to Sunday.

i think there is a time limit. i forgot exactly what that is. 2 days tho, that's risky. why not just have it delivered

Right now, my schedule is pending.....I always prefer the in store pick up (and I like having the belkin screen applied with the machine.)

I did look at the website & it says that if you cannot make you selected time, you can still come at anytime, the wait times just may vary. Going to still try & make it on Friday if I can!
