    Anybody Going To Get The iPhone 4s At The Exeter Apple Store On The 14th?

    I Am But Don't Know What Time To Get There For?

    I'm Thinking Getting There For Like 5am Possibly 4am!

    I will be going at about the same time. This will be my first time so I hope it won't be too late as I'm coming from Cornwall and I will be gutted if I don't get one!

    Also heading up from Cornwall but I'm no early bird.
    Want to get a black and a White 4s for the Mrs, not too worried whether it's 16gb or 32gb so I think I'm gonna take my chances and aim to arrive in Exeter for 7.
    I'm just hoping that people won't see the 4s as a significant upgrade from the 4

    Does anyone know what time the 4 sold out last year?

    Yeh I'm no early bird either but because of the distance and the fact that I've taken time off work I'm gona make the effort. Wish I could get in Plymouth but everyone is selling them as contracts, for now. No sorry don't know bout the iPhone 4, I still have my trusty old 3GS!

    Yep I'll be there! Have never queued for a new model release before.....what time is best to get there? I was thinking 7am? Do you reckon there will be enough phones in stock to meet demand?

    No it doesn't get that busy. But I am weird 5am from now on haha. There really is no point any earlier as the security guards kick you out if you sit outside!!

    Yeah it's Exeter not Covent Gardens dont worry.

    You sure about that? Because I either get their at about 3 - possibly earlier depending on what arrangements I'm able to make - or I don't get there until 9am! I know that people arrived pre-midnight last year...

    People go there but it doesn't get busy as such early.

    Oh, that doesn't bother me. I just want to avoid getting kicked out if I'm the first one...

    What you have to remember is that it's not gonna be that bad because it's not a massive update. We will all get one but I am sticking to 4am there is no point any earlier.

    Trust me, I ideally would queue later, I'd turn up gone 5 if I could! As it is, I have to catch the train from Cornwall (no car atm) and then stay at a friend's house as late as I possibly can. Therefore, I might be left with literally no choice but to turn up before I'd like to. That's why!

    They give you postcodes for the car parks, so have like a satnav on you maybe your old iPhone thats what I'm using haha even though this whole trip is out of greed as I have the iPhone 4 but got a bonus so treating my self. I'll let you know what postcode and car park is best later bud.

    Not sure what time I'm going to get there now, but...if I'm in the top five or six in queue, would I be able to buy and get out relatively quickly? My train home from Exeter Central is at 9.50am, that's all!

    Looking like Parr Street car park. It's 24 hour. It's about a 10
    Minute walk and its only £4.80 for 5 hours and over, the cheapest in Exeter. Was looking at Princesshay car park but they don't seem to list it never used it just seen it the other day but being a building one it's not usually 24 hours.

    No problem. Have a look at street view and then you can get an understanding of the route to Princesshay.
