    I have a question. If I wanted to get my iPhone 4S power support film tomorrow at the 5th avenue apple store in NYC would I still have to wait in the iPhone 4S line to do so? Aka an entrance for people NOT buying the iPhone4S

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Entrance? Maybe. Finding someone to sell it to you? Might not be the best day to drop in.

    Just close your eyes, make two fists with your hands and run in screaming and swinging.

    You can go in the front and just tell them that you want to buy a film. They'll let you in.

    What, he's supposed to go in, grab it, and walk out? He's still going to have to convince an employee to stop and take his money.

    I'd overnight that from Amazon or something, bro.

    I remember during the iPad 2 launch, plenty of folks were strolling in the front door lugging their iMacs and such to get repaired. Apple isn't going to give up on a day of sales outside of whatever product they are launching.

    You just won't be able to get near any iPhones until the line is gone.

    They usually let you in, you just have to tell them that you are not purchasing an iPhone 4S. Some people tried to lie their way into the Apple Store last year by doing this to purchase an iPhone 4, and got busted. Lol. #fail

    That's interesting. My local store usually doesn't allow anything but iPhone purchases on launch days.

    They may not allow it at 8am when the store opens for iPhone launches but they should allow it during the regular store opening hours.

    OP: Tip, pay with a card, not cash. It's faster using the easypay.

    because he can't walk up to the cashier line and ring it up? u must have gotten that confused with the line for the iPhone 4S.

    I would recommend evening time as well.

    I know you probably don't care to hear it, but I ordered Power Support two days ago and it arrived today via USPS.

    You could order it today and have it delivered by Saturday - gives you a night to play with the phone naked ;)

    Why not dress up like a giant iPhone and pretend to work there?
