    Will be along anytime after 10.30, stupid bus time table :mad:
    Would love a white one but will happily stick with the black one I've reserved.

    Apple MK

    Spoke with Apple MK earlier (twice), they told me they will have enough stock for all pre orders & limited stock for walk in customers.

    There will be 2 cue's before opening (pre ordered customers & walk ins)

    The Apple rep I spoke with said at 6am on the iPad launch they had 30 customers waiting and expect 3 times as many if not more for the iPhone 4 launch. They obviously opened up the centre early.

    He recommended I get there for 5am! to be in a chance of getting one as they will be selling them SIM Free, with a contract & upgrades.

    I haven't pre-ordered one so am going to get there for 4ish. They expect some people to cue over night!

    Any one know any different, let me know!

    I would recommend it to as they will be like gold dust in the next week!

    Also if your looking to get a microsim, O2 have a limited supply coming in, so if your local o2 store will let you, I would get one ASAP! local in Northampton said I can pick one up tomorrow (22/06)

    I would go and pick up a MicroSim, but switching from O2 to Orange so don't think i'll be able to get one :(

    However might resort to hacking up my O2 sim so I can use my new phone until the Orange servers have stopped melting and can port my number across haha

    I've reserved my iphone at the mk store,

    but i reli want a white one!!

    I was planning on getting there for around 7, but by the sounds of it there will already be a queue and possibly a long one at that (thats wat she said haha)
    so am now considering maybe just not going bed and staying up and driving over to MK maybe around half 4 (in the morning) see whats happening and if its busy just queuing and if not just sitting in my car till i see people.

    Damn im excited!

    I'm not sure how their stock will be after reservations (I didn't realise I could do that), but I've come off the phone just now and they are saying they will be operating a queueing system tomorrow morning with non-reservations being able to purchase from 9:30.

    I now wonder what the chances are of me being able to pick one up without a reservation.

    I'm still trying to decide whether to head for MK or Brent Cross. As I haven't reserved a phone I wonder where I'll have the best chance of getting one? Wherever I go, I'll get there about 8.30-9am. Any comments from anyone, especially those with previous experiences?

    I called Midsummers Place the other day and they said they'll be open all night!

    So luckily I've reserved mine and all I have to do is appear at about 7am as I need to get in then out quickly so I can go back to work :(

    Midsummers Place isn't actually closed in.

    Granted, some of the entrance doors may be locked at night but there are also entrances that don't have doors (near where it joins the main shopping centre).

    Just go in and start queuing outside the apple store itself.

    Check out the floorplan PDF at http://www.midsummerplace.co.uk/forShoppers/storeGuide/floorPlan.asp

    The big doors opposite the cinema that you mention are to the left of ZARA.

    The entrance without doors is to the right of ZARA.

    I'm gonna go down for 9am, if there's a massive queue I'll leave. Not that desperate to get one.

    cheers matey, as soon as i replied last time, i had worked out where you meant.
    What time is everyone getting there??
    im probably gonna aim to get there for 6ish.

    also how are people buying it? im stuck between a contract with vodafone or buying it unlocked for £599 (32gb)
    i just cant justify to myself spending all that cash in one go.

    hmmmmm decisions.
