    Anyone planning on getting their 5s in Danbury?

    My plan is to head over there around 6am or so. I will also be calling the Apple store and the mall to see what arrangements they are making for the launch.

    Mall security recommends entering the entrance by the Cheesecake Factory. They will be opening the mall at 6:00 am. Sounds like there will be security there and that they will try to maintain order, so no mad dash to the Apple Store.

    Temps look to be in the low 50s Friday morning, so bring your mittens!

    I'm not that ambitious, so I may see you around 5am. :)

    Post what the line looks whenever you get there!

    I read all the articles about the lack of quantity of iPhones available, so I mustered up some ambition!

    I'm at the Danbury mall, 5 people already here:eek:

    We are now up to 8 people. 2 people got here in the last 15 minutes.

    I imagine we will start to see more people in the next hour or so, then accelerating after 5am to 6am.

    6 hours on line, less than 20 minutes to walk out with 2 phones (set 1 up in store).

    Unfortunately, there were very few if any gold or silver phones. I was at the front of the line, and here is what I heard:

    ZERO gold iphones for Verizon :eek:
    2 gold iphones for AT&T 1 32gb and 1 64 gb
    1 silver phone for At&T - 32 gb

    lots of space gray.

    Good luck all!
