    Which one? It'll likely be a mess at all of them. And a 6 Plus, forget it, you should be there already.

    Quite the dilemma whether to go with the Southpoint or Crabtree. If you can't get into Crabtree until 5am I would go with Southpoint as you won't have to worry about your spot in line. With Crabtree there is no telling who is already in the mall if people get in some sneaky way.

    I was at Southpoint for a business lunch today (around noon) and there were already about 5-10 people in line.

    Yeah that's true. I keep seeing stories about other malls where a ton of people got in through a "back door." But the mall cops at Crabtree were pretty adamant about no one being outside their cars until 0500 and even then, only the Starbucks door will be opened.

    There are so many ATA/VZW/BestBuy stores in the Triangle, I would go search one of those stores first, if nobody is in line I would camp out there.

    Holy heck. So at least half those people won't be getting plus's. You would think the most any Apple store will have is 50 (outside NYC or San Fran).

    You can't line up. Security won't let you on the mall property until 0500. At least that's what they did at Northlake last year.

    I talked to a couple guys and they all said they want the Plus. I'm guessing they'll have no more than 20, probably.

    Upper level Glenwood Avenue. It is also the entrance closest to the Apple Store.

    I took a number and I guess just hang out here. Might head to a gas station or something to get some drinks. Yall come hang out! I figure they'll have at least a hundred 6's right?

    I couldn't see anyone there when I drove by

    You will definitely get a 6, probably the 128GB.

    There's some big dude that's apparently mad about the numbering system but he's the only problem so far. Seems like it's working out pretty smoothly. Everyone else is nice!
