    Ok so who will be camping out for an iPhone 4 in Las Vegas? I'm wondering whether it would be better to go to an Apple store or an AT&T store.

    I'll be camping out at an AT&T not only because the line will be more manageable, but I need an upgrade swap done (and have a FAN account), and I don't wanna risk Apple not knowing how to deal with it.

    I'm in NLV

    I'm probably going to fashion mall or town square for it.

    If not, I'll go to the nearest AT&T,

    Hey guys, I've searched a few times for an iPhone 4 meet-up thread for Las Vegas and haven't had any luck. I am coming in from out of town and reserved my phone at the forum shop location at caesar's palace. I would like to know what to expect....

    1) what were the lines like the last few launches?
    2) where/what time to line up. ie: outside the mall? inside?
    3) should I wait until the evening to pick up? I called and they said they close at 11pm so...

    thanks for the help! I look forward to seeing everyone when I pick up my iPhone 4 on the other side of the country! thanks

    I was thinking about going to the Shops in the Forum as well. Which store in LV is the biggest or do you think will have the most?

    Just a heads up. I called the Apple Store located at the Forum Shops. The mall will not be opening until 6am.

    so, since I've never been out there...help me with a few things if you don't mind.

    since the actual mall is not opening up until 6am, where would be the best place to go at that time to get in? is there an entrance via the casino that I would need to go to? or an outdoor entrance? I just want to be prepared that morning and know what the best options are so I am not left out waiting in an obscure location for no reason. again, thanks for the help!

    fyi: if you are out that way, I'm the TALL, skinny guy with a shaved head :D

    see you there!

    What time are people planning on lining up? I was gonna try the forum shops because its closest to where I'm staying but from the sounds of it I might just try an AT&T store.

    Also, any news on the radioshack situation? I wanted to go there and trade in my phone but I can't get a straight answer from anyone at the local stores? Are there going to be any phones for walk-ins? Anyone lining up there?

    Any information would be incredibly helpful!

    Umm, I'm actually not from the area either but what I was able to figure out is that there is a door that leads outside the mall near the Cheesecake factory. That is the closest entrance to get to the Apple store. Hopefully somebody else can shine some more light on this.

    Btw, I haven't heard anybody else confirm this but I went to the Forum Store again today and they said that while the mall opens up at 6am and the Apple Store opens at 7, they would not let walk ins get their phone until 10am. I am trying to figure out if that is just store policy for the forum shops in Vegas or a nationwide apple thing. If that is the case, I'm definitely not lining up at 6am to get a phone at earliest at 10am.

    I have a reservation at Town Square. Planning on getting there around 6 or so. Hoping the reservation line won't be too long.

    In regards to the forum shops, I believe you can access the mall from the entrance inside Caesars at any time, unless they have security there keeping people out. I would just valet your car at Caesars and head for the mall.

    For those that have pre-ordered their phones for delivery in Las Vegas, are any of your tracking numbers showing Out for Delivery today?

    I received the email from Apple about delivery on the 23rd, but it's not looking like it's going to make it in time.

    Our T-Mobile contract doesn't expire until the 29th, so I'm planning to go to the Boca Park AT&T store down the street from my house here in Vegas for two reasons: there are a lot more AT&T stores so the line shouldn't be as bad, and I'm not actually on AT&T yet so they have to port my number over from T-Mobile, which I don't think I can do if I go to an Apple store. It opens at 9, so I'll probably get there between 6 and 7.

    AT&T stores won't have iPhones available for walk in until the 29th. Apple stores can port.

    I forgot to mention that our T-Mobile contract doesn't expire until the 29th so I have to wait till that day anyway. I figure there shouldn't be too much of a line five days after apple stores, radio shack, etc all release theirs.

    I'll be down at Town Square hopefully! I think I'm gonna take a folding chair :).

    If anyone is going to the fashion show mall, the best place to line up if you have to be outside the mall is under the catwalk to the parking garage closest to Spring Mountain Rd. I was there for the 3GS release, and there was quite a line inside the mall by the time I showed up. When I finally got through the line all they had left was white ones, which was perfect because that was what I wanted ;)

    I just called Town Square... they said last year line-ups were originally set for 10pm, but I guess security wouldn't allow people to wait until 4am.

    For those not following my Twitter, the last count was 148 walk-ins to 32 reserves. I was told by two employees the store took 1000 reservations, and the number that was loosely thrown around was a 20:1 ratio when they allow people in (reserve:walk-in).

    Town Square, sorry. It's the only one you can actually line up for right now, yeah?
