    My Apple store is in an outdoor mall and they said security will not allow people to camp. You can start lining up at 6am they said, and they open at 7.

    Anyone else hear about the same type of rule?

    Unless your life is completely devoid of meaning, then no. Not a bit.

    No need to camp bro iPhone 4 = hype + kool-aid man . Stocks will be plentiful on launch day + you know how much apples rev. A products are so this one will be rittled with issues.

    I heard Palm and Samsung make good phones

    I feel with all the hype and the information coming from mac rumors it would be safe to camp out for one just incase this information is true

    I waited in line 5 hours 2 years ago for my 3G. I thought that was crazy. Camping for a phone is just nuts, IMO.

    When people talk about having camped out in the past, I don't hear anyone adding "and I really regret the time I wasted" - so I would say 'why not? You probably don't regret it..'

    Wrong? No. Stupid? Yep. It's a phone. Will your life end if you don't get the very first one? Seriously are people so shallow that they need to be the first to buy a gadget?Millions of people are going to own one, you're not unique.

    Your past iPhone camp experiences don't apply because this release is substantially different than the past 3 in terms of sale and demand.

    i would never but its obvious this year is different as the ATT store behind my house will be allowing it and there will be a Police officer in the parking lot. A ATT person told me someone with a camper is showing up. There is a restaurant near the ATT store and they will offer drink/food all night. This is pretty insane if you ask me.

    The mall where the Apple store is has forbid anyone to be camping out in the lot. A cop will be patrolling and shoo'ing anyone that attempts to camp. So... the line starts at 5am. But a cop will ticket anyone that sits in the lot from 11pm-5am i was warned.

    Wally World I guess you could camp out but they are only getting a "limited" amount that will sell out in the first 1/2hr they said.
