What exactly is a corporate location? How does it differ from a regular AT&T Store and how do i distinguish a corp store?This is going to be a very common thing at lots and lots of COR locations. I know this by 100% facts.
austin. i really don't know if the line will be long or not; it's a pretty big city but there are lots of at&t locations within 30 mins of the one i plan on going to, so hopefully that alleviates the issue of long lines. I called ahead to make sure they where selling them from the store and they said they were but they weren't sure how many they'll have on launch dayDo you live in a big city? A town?
There's a lot of variables. For examples, in NYC I would say camp the night before or something like that.
I called ahead and they said they'd be selling them in store friday they just aren't sure how many they'll have yetI imagine that most retail stores will NOT have inventory.
They can’t even ship enough phones out without a wait time - why would they have walk-ins?
Issue with apple stores is you'd need to get there way earlier these days to get what you want. I was going to do it for the 5S but decided on AT&T instead when I drove by one of my local Apple stores and the line was probably 50 people deep at 6pm the evening before. Can't imagine what this year will be like.I’d go to an Apple Store over an AT&T Store. An AT&T may have some, but you never know if it’s going to be three or sixty. An Apple Store is going to have a bunch, especially in a city like Austin.
I used to line up for the first several years of iPhone, and in the early days without reservations, I’d go at 3am or so for an 8am opening. I haven’t lined up since online ordering was possible, though, so my info is several years out of date.
