    I missed out on the pre-ordering because non-contract people got shafted.

    Can anyone share their experiences lining up for past launches? How was mall security for early arrivals and did you get what you wanted?

    Thanks!

    hey!! I might be camping for the galleria or the americana one next door. Does anyone have any knowledge of either of the two of these for launch day product purchasing??

    Have you been before? Can you lineup to these ones around midnight or do they not let you?

    The employee at the Apple store said there would be long lines outside of the mall. I have never personally camped out there.

    I plan to do the same. I just called the Galleria Apple store and they don't know any details of where the line is going to form outside the mall. There are a couple of entrances I can think of.

    Any ideas anyone?

    The Americana would be the easiest, I suppose.

    From my experience with special sales at H&M at the Americana, the mall allows it. Some people were already in line the evening before. The line formed in between the Cheesecake Factory and the fountain by the tram tracks. I've also seen it form outside of the mall on Brand next to Forever 21. The Americana has 24 hour security due to residency above so you can at least feel safe there if some idiots start ****.

    I don't think I can do any earlier than 5am but good luck to you. Hopefully I'll be able to secure one if I arrive around 5. I'm only a 10 minute drive away from the mall.

    I'll probably consider a different store. Lines are around the block already from Twitter reports.

    Ridiculous. I give up, I'm not waiting overnight for a damn phone. If even the Americana is already around the block, you can bet the Galleria, along with Bev Center and The Grove will be way way way worse.

    Good luck to everyone. There is pretty damn long line at the Americana. There were people with camping gear there before I left work this morning.

    I decided to just order mine for delivery on 7 -10 October for an iPhone 6.

    ----------

    The line at the 3rd Street Promenade is also pretty long. I had lunch there today. Easily over 50 people.

    Chances for iPhone 6+ you're probably pretty slim, did you see the article on verge? Very limited supply It seems.
