    I know we get a great crowd every year, some even from the Gateway Mall days. Who is coming this year? What time are people thinking of arriving? I'll be there with 4 to 5 coworkers sometime after 6pm Thursday I think.

    I missed out on the preorders, so I'm definitely making an effort to get down there! Was anybody able to preorder with an in-store pickup?

    I'll probably get there later in the evening, Thursday.

    I waited in line for the first time last year for iPhone 5S. It was a new experience and a lot of fun getting to know some of the people, but I'm definitely going to come better prepared this year (chair, blanket, food, etc.). Me and a couple of my brothers will be going there after work on Thursday.

    I forgot to Pre-Order as well. I was planning on lining up anyway, but I didn't even think to preorder.

    Another thing: How many people actually pre-order and pick up in store instead of shipping it to your house? Just curious.

    That's what I was curious about too, since AFAIK it was a new thing this year! I think I'm actually not going to be there on the 19th, though... T-Mo has a few 4.7-inchers still available on 9/19 through apple.com... Hope you guys have fun!!! I remember waiting in line for the 4S and having a blast, but I'm just too busy now with school and work.

    I missed the in-store pickup preorder option. There was just too much stuff going on with Apple's servers having issues, before I knew it, the 6+ was back ordered 3-4 weeks.

    I'll be there on Thursday. I won't be as prepared as I have in the past but I plan to bring an extension cord, won't have a power strip with me so if someone could bring that it would be great.

    In the past those buying phones for corporate accounts couldn't do it at Apple stores. Only AT&T could help you out. It could be different now but I don't know.

    Welp. My preorder got knocked back to October. Guess I will be in line then. Hah! I heard last year City Creek said something about no chairs, etc., did that turn out to be true? And what part of the mall does the line usually start up in?

    I think this old thread from the 5s launch may be of some help:

    The majority of the time you'll be waiting outside the mall on a public sidewalk. City Creek or City Creek Officials have no authority to tell you that you cannot have a chair on the public sidewalk. When you enter the mall in the morning they could enforce this rule but assuming you're staying overnight outside the mall you'll want to bring a chair for sure.

    They are doing construction on the trax station at City Creek. The sidewalk is still open, but I'm going to check with security today and see if they still want us to line up in the same place as last year (under the sky bridge).

    Report back. I'm curious to know as well. Hoping to head down Thursday around noon. Anybody else going to be there around then? I'm assuming the line will grow pretty quick after everybody gets off work Thursday evening.

    Someone is there already. He is under the sky bridge lined up. Been there since Tuesday night. I work in an office on the same block, so I can report back on any line changes.

    Up to 16 now. Loud construction going on here so that isn't good.

    So, got a question...
    I pre-ordered. But I'll be driving from Idaho and I don't get off until 11 tonight... What time would you guys recommend arriving, providing I can be there by 1:30am at the earliest?

    I don't think anyone here now preordered. Essentially you should have it guaranteed. I wouldn't come more than a few hours early.

    A lot of people have shown up now, I estimate over 50 people in line. Come as soon as possible but if you have a preorder you have all day to pickup.
