    I am one not to stand in line, especially for hours to get a new Apple product. Don't get me wrong, I love everything Apple and will not ever get another type of phone but just don't see waiting in line for so long. I tried pre-ordering on the 14th but it said that it would be OCT5 to get one. Figure I would try my luck at a store.

    Anyway, I had the rest of the afternoon off from work so I called 2 AT&T stores 1 PM EST and the first one was out and said to come tomorrow. The second one said they had 32GB Whites and 64GB blacks in stock in Snelleville, GA.

    Drove to the store and 30 minutes later, walked out with White 32GB.

    First impressions: holy cow is the IP5 light. I had a IP4S before. LTE is faster than my 30Mbs Charter cable.

    Congrats to you! I lived in Snellville! I could see Stone Mountain from the back yard! Enjoy your phone!

    I walked right into the Lenox Apple Store at 11 and was done in half an hour.

    So the second place you contacted had them?

    Nice. Mine was delivered in Atlanta this morning by 10:30.

    I exactly what I wanted. I have to agree that this thing is very light and definitely much faster than the iPhone 4 I have.

    ----------

    I wonder how many people who preordered are kicking themselves for not attempting this.

    I lucked out in that I got my preorder in before the first day cutoff.

    Also, while I was checking out, he said they just recieved another shipment but he did not know what was in it yet.

    Because when I tested the LTE, I was outside the store. When I did a screen shot, it was in my house where I don't get LTE inside.

    To be fair, my first pick was the black 64, but I decided I would let randomness decide. I haven't had a white one yet so it will be a nice change. I wasn't worried about the alleged scuffing as my Seiko 5 looks nice with age.
