    Anybody on here going to be queuing at the Apple Store in Meadowhall?

    Just want to get an idea on how many people will be there and what time people will be turning up.

    We are wanting to get an iphone tomorrow but arent able to get to the meadowhall until around lunch time. I wonder if they will have enough stock or if it will all sell out with the initial queue?!

    Would be good to be kept up to date OP!

    Outside Meadowhall now. There are about 30 people in line total so far.
    If the 4S stock levels are anything like iPad 2 launch day then I reckon there'll be enough for a couple hundred people maybe.

    Just park anywhere near the main entrance really.
    If the queue isn't still outside the main entrance by that time then there is a small corridor they open at the side of the Apple Store for queuing.

    And I reckon 4am should be ok. Doubt many people will be turning up at the very early hours of the morning (like 2 or 3am).

    There's around 30-40 people here at the moment.
    And you should be fine getting Ito the car park at 4. They open the centre at around 4 for workers and that.

    I don't think i'm going to bother then aha! I got to Meadowhall at 06:00 for the iPad launch and I was about 30th in line back then so the queues just sound unbearable!
