    It's been two years or so since I have waited in line for a phone at the Apple store....anyone going to be there? Expect a long line? What time to show?

    The last time I waited in line my buddy and showed up about 10-11 pm the night before and it was about 20 deep. Wondering if I should expect the same or......dun dun daaaaaa worse ;)

    The one time I did it I showed up at 5:30 and was about 30th. With the rain overnight I wonder two things: 1) will it keep some away and 2) will the mall let people in if lightening proves a danger?

    Not sure yet the time I'm getting there. I've considered 10pm, midnight, or 5:30 again.

    If anyone is there overnight it would be nice to get hourly posts on line size. I'll do it if I am there too. :)

    Btw, how are restrooms handled if you are there overnight? People just good about letting you back in your spot if you drive over to Casey's or wherever?

    Wonder what time the mall will let people in....apple is opening at 8 I think.

    I'm assuming no one from Apple is there, but if there is have they come out to talk about what's avail? Saw other threads saying some stores did.

    Yeah, sounds like corporate sent an email to all stores asking them to inform those in line that white and gold phones are in extremely limited supply. They didn't know anything more than that. They won't open boxes until 6ish so they don't have counts yet. They announced so those waiting for those colors wouldn't wait all night and be disappointed.

    I'm assuming by what they told us and what other threads are reporting, there are no gold or maybe just a couple. The white is surprising to me.

    No mention of space gray being limited.
