    I plan to get there around 3:30 - 4:00 am after a nice sleep in my own bed. Yeah baby

    Any one planning on meeting up at Roseville?

    I ordered the 6 but am having second thoughts. The Plus looks fun. Don't know about the 6 Plus hanging out in my pocket for the next year, though. I might have to invest in a man purse.

    Also, I pre-ordered for in-store pick up from Roseville. I see that others are getting emails confirming their product is ready. Haven't received one yet. Let me know if you have!

    Good to see a thread for Roseville!

    I ordered mine for delivery but I still will swing by the Apple store at Galleria to pick up a case or two.

    If any of you on this thread who are camping, getting there early can snap some photos or videos I'd love to see them as I don't plan to get there that early.

    I debated going just for sake of filming and talking to people and then handing out cases for those who agree to be on camera (see my sig below) but I don't think Galleria allows that :/

    Still, very interested to see how big things get tomorrow. I remember one year the line wrapped all the way around Nordstrom!

    Does Galleria not allow filming or handing out cases? ...or both?

    Handing out cases is fine "I think", its the filming that is an issue.

    In my past experience you can only film outside and once you step inside the mall you need to have obtained prior permission.

    If I were filming with my iPhone no biggie but pulling in my dedicated camera and hand held mic raises a lot of eyebrows.

    As of 2:30pm the apple store Said there was nobody in line that they know of. However mall security is making everyone wait outside till 6am then people can start lining up.

    Interesting. So the line will be outside until 6am? Any idea on whether they will make us wait in cars until a certain time?

    Arden Fair Mall Security kicked us out !!!

    Update from Arden Fair Mall:

    We just got kicked out by Mall Security, and their saying that anybody who hangs out anytime on the Mall Property from Closing Time to 5am, will be Subjected to Arrest !!!

    And their claiming that the Bus Stop Area along Arden Way is part of their so called Mall Property..

    That's not right. It's in their best interest to allow you to "peacefully assemble" now in order to avoid chaos at 5am.

    Will you be heading up to Roseville?

    Mall security is totally fine with us lining up. We are right next to the door closest to the Apple store.

    I just drove by Galleria (about 9:10pm) and by estimate I would say there are between 80-120 people already in line.

    Line goes from the outdoor entrance between Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware and wraps around the front of Restoration Hardware.

    At this point I think it is safe to say that unless you have a pre order pick up and you are looking to get a 6 plus you better already be in that line because if not your chance is slim to none.

    Attached pic from my car - sorry it's not the best but you get the idea.

    If you don't mind, could you let us know the iPhone 6 stock level situation after they (apple employees) come out at 5am?

    Really curious to see how thin the stock is. I'm still waiting for mine to ship :eek:

    They said they have a lot more 6's than Plus's. They are stacking them up in the back of the store and I see a significant number. About 250 in line so far. I'll be among the first group to go in from the pickup line. :) Got here at 3:40. I have a nice view of the storefront and the 6s are up for display.

    I was considering going, but I did not preorder, my leg is recovering from an injury, oh well. I would only go if there was room and availability.
