    The official thread for the Willowbend Mall iPhone 5c/5s launch. What time are folks planning on arriving this evening? I'm going to be there around 9:00 tonight.

    You do realize they're making you camp outside of Dillards entrance and it is supposed to rain tonight, don't you?

    Do you mean the northernmost entrance on this map?

    Like, not through Dillard's but through the exterior mall entrance closest to it. Right?

    And what's your source? Thanks for the info!

    In years past the line has started in front of the food court entrance.

    Did they open this early last year? I know I was there early but I don't remember them opening at 8am.

    Line is in the parking garage outside Dillard's.

    There are roughly 30 people here as of 11pm

    Willow Bend at around 3. Stonebriar was shorter, but considering the rain this has been a much better option.

    About 250 now. They're letting us inside the mall at 6. Very orderly and everyone is dry.

    Can anyone give us an update as to how fast the line might be moving or if there are any concerns of them running out of phones. I'm trying to maybe beat the line and show up at about eight or 830 hoping I could walk in.

    The update is they've moved the line inside. If they started passing out cards it hasn't gotten to me yet. There are about 300 waiting total. I'm 120 to 150 back.

    ----------

    Starting to wonder whether they're even doing the cards here. It may be you don't know stock till you get to the front of the line. 7:25 and nothing yet.

    It will open at 8. We're now in the third and final queue right outside the Apple Store.

    Thanks for the very useful info

    ----------

    The only thing I've heard from an apple employee is the AT&T gold 5s is sold out

    They just announced that all gold models are sold out here, all sizes and carriers. All sizes of AT&T silver phones are also gone.

    In other words, only Space Gray available on AT&T.

    No other info at this time.

    All White/Silver and Gold were gone for AT&T and Verizon about 150 people into the line.

    Only black/space grey were available.


    The inventory is terrible... The demand is nutso.

    In line now. There's hundreds of people ahead of me, and they're not handing out cards. Only space gray.
