    Hi guys
    any one going to meetup at Leicester Apple store?
    and what time do you think I should be there?
    and where exactly to start queuing ?

    I'm from Nottingham and wants to leave very early from here:D

    Yea I'm guessing around 4/5 am if you definitely want one. I've never queued before though, so don't quote me on it. Seems on the other threads that is the time that people are considering, but sounds very early to me lol.

    I see the John Lewis Highcross car park is 24 hour, so convenient parking.

    i queued up last year for the 4 at leicester, and the iPad 2 in march as well.
    i get there at 6:30 normally, always seems to work well!

    They split it into 2 lines, sim-free and contracts. Contracts line is tiny!
