    Is anyone going to be at SCP for the launch? I pre-ordered for pickup and am hoping the line isn't going to be too crazy. My logic is that there are 3 other stores in the OC area (if you count Brea), and 2 in the vicinity of South Coast (Irvine, Fashion Island)... so people have options rather than crowding the 1 lone store within a 50 mile radius (like some other cities/states)!

    I've never done an in-store pickup so I'm hoping this goes well. :eek:

    I'm going! For in-store pick up last year though I didn't have to wait in line at all. All I did was wait for the email saying that I could come in to pick up, drove to SCP, walked right into the store and was helped quickly by an employee who grabbed a phone from the back with my name on it. Very quick. There was a very long line for people who didn't pre-order though.

    I'll be there too. My contract is up on the 14th, so order on-line [then] is out of the question (that is I'll waiting forever).

    QUESTION for those going to the South Coast Plaza:
    When will you be in line?
    So that I get a head start.:D

    My contract through AT&T was up on the 14th too but I was able to preorder. I saw on a few threads that they just automatically bumped a few people up? Dunno but I'm not complaining lol.

    Well since I have a preorder I am hoping I can do what AceMason said and just show up and walk out. But I'll probably be there around 7-7:30am just in case... :D

    Thanks again for the info. However,...

    I just tried on-line to order every choice of the 6+ I could (different colors, memory sizes), it wouldn't let me choose to pick up at the store; only 3-4 weeks for shipping. :(

    So, I guess I still have to wait in line. Unlike you, you're likely to have the option to walk in and pick up.

    Any one else going to the South Coast Plaza? And what time? So I can get there before you, hehe. :D

    South Coast Plaza SECURITY WON'T LET...

    For those who are going to the SCP Apple Store, please confirm if you know. So I dug into the old meetup threads from 2010. From what people were saying, the security wouldn't let people lineup until 5 am. Can anyone confirm this?

    I just don't want to be there too early and end up wonder around elsewhere. :) Thanks.

    Yeah I think the in store pickup is all sold out. They only have a certain # of phones for it. I think if you got to the store at 5am you would be okay. Ironically I used to work at SCP in 2012 when the 5 came out, but I have no recollection of how it was on launch day.

    Heading to SCP on fri to pick up something and will try the Apple store. This store always seem to have less of a crowd compared to Brea. Good luck to all.

    i waited in line at brea last year. the same 5a policy was stated, but so many people showed up, they couldn't help but to let people start lining up around 3-330a. i don't know what i'm going to do this year.

    :edit:
    i looked at the old thread from last year. the time might have been closer to 4-430a.

    I ran into the security issues at Brea and the Spectrum, I imagine South Coast is the same.

    I was at the Spectrum for the last launch and there were no issues with Security. I think I got there at 2AM and there were people who had been there from well before midnight
