    Hey, just wondering if anyone is waiting in line in Connecticut. I live in Hartford so Evergreen Walk & Westfarms Apple Store locations are both close by! (Westfarms is closer) does anyone here have any experience with either?

    I have a December ship date but with an iPhone 6 in hand I'd rather try to get the X on Launch day. Thanks :)

    I've never bought in-store on launch day before, but I'm going to try at Evergreen Walk tomorrow. Maybe I'll see you there.

    It looks like they don't open until 10AM, so I'm just going to take an early lunch and see if I'm lucky enough to snag one.

    Yeah i was thinking of evergreen walk myself simply because many people don't know that store is even there. It isn't a high traffic area. But I'm sure westfarms will get much more stock than evergreen !

    I was thinking about heading to Evergreen walk, but I feel like there's probably a line formed already.

    None. I feel like the closer the stores are to larger cities the more people will be there. I heard target may be getting a few. I may try my luck there around opening time

    Evergreen walk is a pretty good choice for launch day, everyone forgets about it for some reason ‍♂️

    I just talked to the manager at Evergreen Walk, they have a line of 100+ people.

    I don't think I'll be getting my iPhone over lunch, but I'll give it a shot.

    Three hour wait in New Haven, but they say everyone currently in line will get a phone. Nice day to wait though! I have to go back to work, so will wait on my 2-3 week pre-order.

    Just got back from Evergreen Walk with a 64GB Space Gray! It was under a 2 hour wait, and a beautiful day to be outside.

    When I got inside they had everything but 256 and 64 Space Gray for Verizon.

    A number of stores in CT have them available for purchase online for in store pickup. So I canceled my preorder, and now will pick up my AT&T Space Grey 256 in Trumbull. Good luck everyone!

    Out of stock now of my model in a lot of CT stores, but it probably varies based on color, capacity and carrier.

    6 AM seems to be the time when stock availability is refreshed online. I ordered from Evergreen Walk. Availability quickly went down as more people ordered online.

    This year at Evergreen I did not have to wait outside. The last time I picked up an order they had me join the regular line waiting outside. This year I was able to go right inside when I arrived at about 10:15 am and there was no waiting at all. I was out in 5 minutes.

    If possible, try to get the early appointment and avoid late-day crowds.

    There was a crowd at the Trumbull store, but no line for phones. Walked in, told the "front desk" guy I was picking up, and they passed me to someone further back. She asked if I wanted to set it up in store or at home, I said at home, someone handed me my phone, and I was out in 5 minutes. Restoring from iTunes as I write this. Glorious!
