    Anybody camping out on launch day in Chicago? I'm thinking of going to the Michigan Ave store around 4am.

    is 4am enough time with the supply constraints?

    You're right. 4am might be a bit too late.

    I'm still debating on where to go. It's either between Michigan ave, Lincoln Park or Old Orchard. I think I'll drive past these location around 11pm Thursday night to see how the lines are.

    The last time I lined up for an apple product was for the iPad 2. I've preordered the iPhone 4, 4s and 5 online through AT&T and got it on launch day.

    How did the iPhone 5 lines look like last year in Chicago?

    I remember there being quite a line at the Lincoln Park store when I went to work on the train that morning last year. Good thing I preordered. However, I don't have anything to compare this to as I haven't seen the line for any other year.

    It will probably storm overnight again tonight. Now I'm debating if I should go inside Woodfield.

    I went to Woodfield last year, there was a decent size line. I'm thinking 5-6AM, but they probably won't let you in the mall until 7-730AM.

    I just got in line at the Deer Park, IL store. About 50-60 people here ahead of me.

    Holding out hope!

    Not bad. Probably about the same amount here at old orchard.

    How was their stock? This is the first time since introduction in 2007 that I've not been able to get my choice of phone on launch day. By the time they got near to my area in line - they were totally sold out of all sizes of AT&T whites. (in Oak Brook)
