    Reserved mine for pickup at the University Ave. store. Prefer to take part in the excitement of mingling with the crowd outside the store and the party atmosphere within...versus waiting for UPS to show up.

    I was working at that store when the first iPhone was released. What an awesome experience. And I've been to the store to get the next two versions. How could I NOT go in person again?!!

    Look for me in line. I'll be wearing the pre-release iPhone t-shirt we wore as Apple store employees.

    Palo Alto - University Ave. Store

    Reserved mine on the 15th for pickup here. So excited!!!! But it seems to not be as popular a choice as the Stanford Mall or Valley Fair. Why?

    I'm guessing it's because parking can be hell there

    Camping out isn't possible at Stanford or Valley Fair

    I've never had trouble getting a space in the lot below city hall, even when it's packed on a Friday night. I got my 3G at the Stanford store two years ago, and it was annoying lining up in the middle of the mall.

    I'm gonna be there a few hours early with my younger brother (it's his birthday present, one month and one day late). So yea, it should be fun.

    Come join us if you couldn't get a pre-order in through Apple, or if AT&T screwed you over.

    I pre-ordered from Apple, but could only get the store pick-up because the AT&T verification was down. So I will be in line as well @ University Ave.

    For anyone concerned about parking around University, if you go about 2-3 blocks towards Hawthorne Ave or Everett, there's a quiet residential area that usually has plenty of parking and no lousy 2 hour limits.

    well, because of the debacle that was pre-ordering the iphone 4 (thanks at&t), I didn't get to. So I'll be showing up as early as I can, and still go to work afterwards. I figure I'll be getting here to the University Store around 5-5:30am. If the line is bad, I'm gonna say screw it and I'll just have to wait the month before i'm able to get one.

    It would be nice to know what kinda avg the apple stores are gonna get for walk-in stock.

    Does anyone know if an overnight line for this store has been started?

    I'm hearing the Stanford store will be crazier cuz parking is easier there. I dunno.

    If you could post and mention how many are in line, that'd be awesome. I'll check back throughout the night if you can keep it updated as well.. but I just can't stay all night. feh.
