    I am planning to go out about 30 mins before my scheduled appt. Hoping it doesn't take too long or is backed up as some have posted in here about it possibly being.

    I did camp out at the JC store for the 5 I believe. A buddy and I got there at about 10:30PM the night before (only because people started lining up at like 6PM) we didn't want to be too far back.

    Once it was time to go in (I think an hour before, so 7AM) we were able to go in through the Mall doors and line up outside the actual Apple store. They went down the line asking what size and carrier you wanted and basically told you if they had them in stock. We were only 20 peeps back so we got what we wanted.

    Last year, I did not camp out. I showed up to the store after work and after about a 2hr wait I was able to pick up the phone.

    I was wondering if anyone would post on here about the JC store. Was hoping I would be able to gain some info from peeps if they were early or had an appt before mine.

    Did you reserve your phone? Or are you just trying to walk-in and purchase if avail?

    Do they have it set up for two lines? Reservations and walk-ins?

    Is there a specified "check-in" spot?

    Hopefully the line is moving pretty good. Now I just have to wait till 11:30 :cool:

    Yep! Two lines are going and moving pretty well. Not a lot of phones available though. Check in is right in front of the store. Good luck!

    Oh sweet! That's good news (as far as line moving). Also glad I reserved one.

    Did you get the one you wanted?

    Oh wow! I thought there was a limit to the number you could buy. That is a bummer. Should have more tomorrow though.

    Yeah I def agree with you there. Never had any real issues with the store and if something has come up, the manager is great!

    Oh wow. Very nice! I was impressed by how it went yesterday. My appt was at 11:30 and I was in my 11:35-11:40. I was done by noon.

    Happily playing with my phone the rest of the day lol
