    Anyone plan on going to the Brea Mall or somewhere in Orange County? I have never gotten the phone at launch at store, only online. Just wanted to know if anyone had experience here about when to get there, and if anyone will be there.

    I might be going to Brea or Cerritos. I camped out at Cerritos for the 4S. It'll be my first time doing so at Brea. Any advise would be helpful.

    I camped at Brea for the 4S and for the 5... You might want to call the mall Thursday to find out what time they're allowing the line to form. The line will start at the entrance where Red Robin is... Last year they said they wouldn't let anyone line up until 4am... I dropped by around 1 and security turned me away... came back at 3 and there was a line already. So keep checking...

    I honestly don't remember. If I had to guess I'd say about 50-60 people in front of me? But Brea usually gets a big stock on launch day. I remember hearing they still had stock later on in the day and evening... I just camp out to make it to work the next day on time haha..

    I called mall security and they said they're allowing the line to start at 5.

    This is true. Last year I showed up at 11 am on launch day. No camping. There were like 39 ahead of me and the line went fast. I was out with 2 iPhones in less than 1 hr. Brea is easy I wouldn't sweat it sleeping over

    First time hunting on launch day (usually do a pre-order) and am thinking of going to Brea, Cerritos or Costa Mesa.. So far I garner that:

    Brea gets a good amount in-stock.
    Cerritos won't allow lines until 5am.
    Costa Mesa ___________________.

    Any info on the South Coast location? I called and the Apple Store guy said that a line will be allowed to form beginning at 3 (am or pm, he didn't specify).

    But the Incipio office is nearby, so they normally come & give everyone a free case!

    Interesting! Free Incipio cases at South Coast location.. Will you be there? Any tips/details on best place to park and queue up? All I know is that the Apple Store is close to the Crate & Barrel since I went there recently for a gift purchase..

    ----------

    What time were you planning on heading to Brea? Will they let us line up in the mall or are we made to wait outside?

    I'm here and either there's no line or I'm in the wrong part of the mall. Near the parking lot entrance by the food court you can walk in and no one's there to stop you. I walked it and they're setting up the store right now. Kinda weird all by yourself so I'll be chilling in my car. Let me know if/when you guys get here!

    Are you by Red Robin? That's where we normally line up.
