    Anyone know if camping out is going to be a thing for the launch of this phone? Is Apple not allowing campouts like they did for the Apple Watch? I'd hope there would be campouts for this phone. The demand seems fairly good, at least to the point that there will be a decent number of people camping out at each store, but what do you think?

    Camping out next to my computer at home. Why would anyone want to camp out for the SE ? Use your current phone until it arrives. Its not like its going to be the greatest and latest is it ?

    I always like the campout because it's a lot of fun, but I understand that some people don't like camping out all that much. I don't camp out because I have to have the latest phone on day one or because I can't wait. I camp out because it's a really fun experience (in my opinion), you get to meet new people, and the hype is crazy. It's quite the experience though, and that's why I camp out:D

    I wouldn't, but wouldn't camp out for any phone really.

    I went years using other makes of devices because the iPhone's screen was too small. (Actually too narrow for a decent keyboard). I got a 6+ when they came out.

    No way am I going backwards..

    No. It's an embarrassment. Especially when you have grown men doing it.

    Never camped out for any iphone. I'm never in that much of a rush...just waited a few weeks til the crowds went away.

    I'll just wake up early and pre-order it from Apple, they usually go on sale at 8am UK time and I'm up way before that for work.

    Wake up at 3am (est) and use the Apple Store app. I'll be back asleep by 3:02am

    Its a phone, nothing more. Order it online and go back to sleep after you hit the buy button.

    I can't imagine that pre-orders for the SE will sell out like a September launch. I can't see there being a launch day shortage either.

    It doesn't seem to make sense to camp out or even get up early unless you're just doing it for the fun of it.

    I've gotta work on the 24th & 31st so that makes it an easy choice for me (online).

    I doubt you'll need to camp out lol. I'm sure these phones will be readily available.

    Flippers are going to be all over this. Going to guess 5SE is going to go for upwards of $600 on the grey market.

    I go camping in the woods to get away from society. Sleeping on a sidewalk to buy a phone seems rather pathetic, especially when I can order it from my Lazyboy and have it delivered to my door.

    Nope, just delivery it to my job or I'll pick one up next week at a local Apple Store.

    I've camped out once and it was a blast with the other enthusiasts talking tech. For this release I think anyone taking the plunge would be lonely likely being the only person in line lol.

    umm.. just walk into the store on the first day and buy one. more than likely they are in stock. this not some special phone that we haven't seen before. it's an iphone6 in an iphone5's clothing.

    Well, they're not in stock hardly anywhere now. Camping out probably wouldn't have mattered though. The stores near me seemed to be out of stock before the day ended.
