That was me. It was after some prat rocked up at an hour before the doors opened and thought he could stand at the front as "Apple said the queue didn't start till the doors opened". Needles to say he didn't get through the door before me!!I'll be there about midnight again. Third year in a row.. I missed the pre orders.
You are right about the queue jumpers last year! Not sure if it is one of you guys but there was a guy last year who spoke to everyone and we all agreed we would stay in order when we went from outside to inside... Hopefully apple will only open the one entrance door this year and everyone walks. Not like the iphone 5 release when it turned in to a free for all sprint to keep your place... I was there from 11pm and the foreigner in front of me arrived at 7am.... Wtf. My mate who's coming this year will definately put them back to the end of the queue! If anyone goes anywhere near the metro store can you speak to the manager and make sure they know to stop people running and to only open the one door. Cya all on the night guys!
I think they are going to have very limited stock for non reserved customers. However, as each time slot passes they will then release the non collected phones to people in the "standby" queue.right, does store collection mean that if i haven't ordered mine, then even if I'm the first of the people who haven't reserved then theres a chance i might get the iPhone model i want?
I got there after you last year (around 2am), and I was still only about 10th in the queue. I'm sure with preorders this year he should be OK getting there for around 2 or 3am.If you haven't pre ordered for store collection then I would be there midnight.
About 8:20 IIRC, you could have used the retail preorder page to preorder and collect in store, there was stock of most iPhone 6 variations until late in the evening on Friday.what time on the 12th did the pre orders start on the website cos i couldnt find anything,, and i think when i was clicking refresh waiting for the online store to start allowing to buy, it was just reloading from cache and i missed it
Looks like it is only queuing before opening time now.Damn. I did a normal pre order for delivery but didn't see an option for collect so ended up canceling that order and just assumed the collection was for America only.
