    I didn't do it last year, but for the 4 and 4S I camped out in line at Ridgedale Mall. I plan on doing Ridgedale Mall again.

    Who is all planning on Ridgedale, Uptown, Mall of America?

    I started around midnight for both of those launches, and only about 5 people were in line. I'm expecting it to be worse this year because of no preorders and the rumors of people in line still not getting any.

    I've arrived at midnight both times. It should still be fine. I'll try to listen for news of the line forming earlier or their being a massive shortage.

    I've never actually queued up for an iPhone before, but was planning on it this year since I've been stuck with a feature phone since selling my 4S a week ago, and I want to make sure I snag a phone. I was thinking Uptown since it's closest; anybody have any launch day experiences with that store?

    Does Ridgedale allow people to camp out inside the mall? Or are you camping outside?

    Camp outside. They start selling at 8am, 2 hours before the mall opens. They let us in a half an hour to an hour early to line up outside the store inside middle area.

    ----------

    I've only ever did Ridgedale Mall. Last year's thread seemed to indicate that there were more people at Uptown than Ridgedale. Probably because it's easier to get in line after drinking... or simply being closer to people. Plus, others might not know that the Ridgedale one actually opens at 8 for launches (their website says 10am).

    Uptown has only 64GB Space Grey models; Southdale, and Rosedale are completely sold out of all models/colours. AT&T store in Uptown and Downtown got only the Space Grey, 16 and 32GB of which sold out (in Downtown).
