    Me too. I'm just not sure where to line up at or what time mall security will allow us to.

    Yeah, does anyone know just how early we should line up or even if we will be able to? The mall opens at 10, right?

    I remember buying my iPhone 5 on launch day last time and I was able to get a 32GB 5 no problem at around 5PM. I won't be there that late this time, but I wonder if it's necessary to be there super early this time.

    When the iPhone 4s came out I remember the line starting at the door near BRIO Tuscan Grille. I am sure people will start lining up early. I bet there will be a line forming before the mall closes. I will head over today and ask where will the line start.

    I know the mall opens at 10 but the store starts selling at 8. I'm just worried about what time is too early to get there. The last thing I want is to get told at 3am to leave by mall security.

    So I went to the Apple store trying to find out where that line would start. I was told they couldn't give out the info WTF?? They did say Mall Security would direct people when time come.

    I called last night, and guest services told me to line up at the door "next to Urban Outfitters and South Moon Under, between Nordstrom and the Food Court." But she said that she was unable to tell me when we could begin lining up.

    I called after 6 and mall security said they haven't decided what time people can line up. Trying a local company owned att store instead closer to home. Got the impression that they will have some stock and being first in line will help.

    Has anyone had experiences here before? I haven't ever been to a Christiana Mall iPhone launch. Do they often have a lot in stock? If I show up at 4am for a 64gb silver iphone 6, should I be fine?

    And... you can't be serious about the 300 people already...

    Yes. I left and drove by the Sprint store where I got my iPhone 4s from. No line there yet. Hopefully I can get iphone 6 plus from there.

    Basically what just happened happened is, there was a mob of people across from the sidewalk, they set up a line with cones, then the state police said "RUN!" and there was a stampede into the line. Absolutely ridiculous.

    That was awful. Troopers let the floodgates open right before 11 and people were getting trampled trying to get to that line. I left and came back to the local att store to guarantee one.

    ROFL. So glad I left and headed to King of Prussia.

    Good luck! I'm very disappointed with how the State Police handled the situation. Cursing at people and then yelling at people in line saying "it's not like you'll even get a phone anyway, they only have like 20"

    ...How many does the Apple Store here usually carry on launch day? Do they often have enough for people? I mean, this is one of the top selling Apple stores in the country, and the only one in Delaware, so you'd think they'd have a lot...

    It is The TOP in the country for selling iPhones. Do to its location and No sale tax.

    Yes the troopers were out of line. It's all good because I'm first in a line of about 10 here a the local company AT&T store and they have some plus in stock, they wouldn't say how many but at least I line I have a much better chance of getting what I want then if I stayed up there at that CF

    Have they given you any insight into how this will go down? I read that they would split the line at 5 and start the reservation process.

    How does the line look now. Have they given out all the phones they have?

    I waited in that damn line for 15 hours and just gave up around 12 because it wasn't moving at all. Their POS was down and didn't come back up until after 11, but by then half of the specialists were doing normal sales instead of iPhones (macs, iPads, etc). Wasn't worth it.

    In the future I'd much rather go to King of Prussia with a smaller line of respectful people and pay the sales tax instead of being in a mob of scalpers.
