    Woo hooo! I'm planning on getting to the Apple store about 3 am. I'm hoping this is enough time. I called them yesterday and they said they anticipate having enough phones for everyone in line.

    First time RSVP!

    I RSVP's at the Lincoln Rd store this time around... So, people start getting there as early as 3am huh?... This should be exciting, lol

    Does anyone know how fast the lines move usually?

    The Lincoln Road store will have three lines serving specific customers:

    1. Those with a reservation for a phone.
    2. Walk-ins without a reservation.
    3. Silly SoBe homo trash that just wants to be trendy. (Crossover with categories 1 and 2 highly likely.)

    Put on some fresh manties. It's gonna be a long night!

    Update from south beach!

    So it's 1:34 and there approximately 75 people in line as "walk-INS." the manager came by about 90 minutes ago and said the line was cutoff, that everyone up to that point was guaranteed a phone, but no more. Because so Many people are buying two, that tells me they had about 150-200 for people that didn't reserve.

    The reserved line is much smaller, with maybe 25 people. Obviously they won't have a problem.

    The scene is festive, everyone is talking and making friends. There's a starbucks here open 24 hours for bathroom breaks and coffee. Had awesome pizza at pizza rustica. Now me and my AWESOME girlfirned are chilling in our tent.

    Damn. That sucks. I went to aventura instead after reading this. There's a list here and about 120 people on it. It's mixed with reservations and walk ups. I hope I can still get one. There's going to be a lot of upset people. It's only 245 am!!!
