    I'll be in line for a 5s (sPaCe GrEy, 16 or 32GB). Who's with me?

    Hey,

    I will also be going.

    Not sure what time thinking about 3-3:30am. Any Suggestions?

    Also In the past the line was in the parking garage lower level next to Macy's.
    Is that going to be the same?

    I plan on going around 3-4am. I doubt we'll have too much trouble getting a phone if we show up around them.

    I'm gonna call the mall and the store within the next few days and find out all of the information. I'll post to this thread when I've got more info.

    Does anybody know how they are going to let people in? Where we all have to meet? What time I should probably get them. I'm on a time schedule have to be back at school by 10 I know the store opens at 8 and that's when they are starting.

    I am down. When you have details PM me...

    Also is the line organized? Meaning when were allowed to go inside, everyone goes in order or is it a track meet to the apple store?

    I waited there with my mom for the original and 4 launches, and it was organized. Line went straight through the door, organized and single file. They do an excellent job at these launches.

    iPhone 5s

    Can somebody tell me how exactly this is supposed to go. I am getting the iPhone 5s at full retail price for Verizon on Friday morning. I'm probably going to get there at 12-1 so I can be either close or first on line. Is the experience as fun as it seems or not? Also does anybody know if they are letting the people who pre-ordered the iPhone 5c get their phones first or are they going to have 2 separate lines and each time a line will go in and get their phones. Please somebody pm me or write on the thread. Thanks Noah. Hope to see you guys there

    I'm in line right now. I got here around 2am. Line up is happening between Bloomingdales and Nordstrom on the side of the mall. You'll see flashing lights from the mall security cars, most likely. The line is up to about 30-40 people. Really not too bad yet.

    Mall security is here and is doing an excellent job.

    As of 4:30, there are about 70 people on line. Security gave out wrist bands to help you keep your spot if you need a bathroom break.

    250 people. They've let people in the store as early as 730. Very controlled (compared to the iPhone 4 launch)

    I got my phone. iPhone 5s, 32GB, Space Gray.

    For those wondering, they only had 7 Gold models at launch. CRAZY.
