    The last time I was there for a launch was for the iPhone 4 and it was crazy. I am going to call the mall tomorrow to find out what time and where we can line up.

    How crazy? What time did you go there... maybe I should go to ATT store. Did you get the phone you wanted?

    I went when the store opened there were hundreds in line and no I didn't get it the 1st day... I stood in line a second day and got it. I don't think it will be that crazy for the 5s. I plan on being there by 6am.

    I was thinking it wouldn't be crazy but i heard 10 att stores only received 18 total 5's for the 10 stores. I want the 64gb phone hopefully i get it. My power button broke so I need to get it friday. I am going to check the line earlier in the night. I may end up in like at midnight or go to a movie at midnight and than get in line and somehow sleep... ugh . keep in touch. text me if you want to talk more about it 617 320 9963.

    I talked to security and you can start lining up after 9pm on level 3 outside of the food court. They will have a security guard stationed there. At 6am they will move people inside next to the Apple Store.

    Hope this helps.

    ----------

    Still not sure what I am going to do. My hunch is they will only have a few 5s and a lot of the 5c's. I hate waiting many hours then they open and say sorry we don't have enough which happened with the iphone 4.

    i'm skeptical now supposedly there is a line already and i asked the lady if there weren't gonna be any 64gb and she said probably. Now I am angry. I gotta figured out what to do. I really don't have camping stuff. Is there a place to go to the bathroom?

    Not last year for the 5. They had everyone line up on level 3 of the parking structure outside the food court. I was there.

    I just called the store and woman told me there is already a line forming at that same spot. It wasn't very long yet. I asked if they expected to have the same inventory as they did for the 5 (which was plenty) and she said they wouldn't know until much later or in the morning.

    There is no way they don't have them yet. I called 3 times one person said theres probably not any 64. The others said they aren't in stock yet.

    ----------

    My friends friend works there and said there will be plenty and to come at 6am.

    I talked to Security twice and the Apple Store and the line will start after 9pm tonight on 3rd level outside food court to the left. They said they will have a security guard posted there.

    ----------

    I was told they will have a good supply 5s but very few Gold or Silver.

    By the food court. Apple store employee polled the line and said only space gray would be left for me if I stayed. Don't bother showing up if you want silver or gold.
