    Anyone know exactly where the line will form? I called the mall and security said no one is allowed on mall premises before 5AM, which is when they would allow people to start lining up. They also didnt mention which entrance you can line up at. Has anyone done this before and can give tips or advice?

    If I recall last year it was the entrance facing the Tin Lizzy’s joint. We definitely lined up the nite before and I think they took us inside around 6 am or so. I plan on being there in the early evening like 5 or 6pm to assess the line, if any.

    I’ve been there for launch day twice before and they’ve used the mall entrance that is across from Dick’s both times, they say they won’t let anyone before 5 but when I got there at 5 am there was about 75 people already.

    If anyone gets a bit more info it’d be nice to know what’s really the earliest, I may go as early as 4 am this time. I really want an iPhone X

    If you really want the X I would get there as early as possible. A lot of retail cellphone stores are not getting any X's on launch which means people will be forced to go to the Apple Stores.

    I was lucky enough to get a launch day pre-order in

    Will there be a separate line for preordered pick up? Anyone have experience on how accurate the pre-set appointment time is?

    Also I checked with other retail stores, they will be selling phones on launch (tomorrow), but apparently they are only selling the phone if you agree to installments, you wont be able to purchase the phone fully at these stores. Apple is one of the only ones that gives you the option to purchase the phone fully.

    has security driven by at all and say anything? I know they haven't in the past but it only takes one security guy to get a big head and start raising hell for no reason.

    Nope. Guess since the mall just closed and there’s still foot traffic.

    Apple employee just walked down the line and someone asked him how many do they have, employee said “LOTS” so it seems like if someone wants to head this way you may still be in luck, theres probably just over 160 people as of 6:20
