    So my plan is to go to the "ATT or Apple" around 3-4AM, or perhaps 5 in the morning and wait in line until the store opens around 8, and get my shiny new 16G gold iphone, or space grey as back up if gold isn't available.
    Since I live in Las Vegas, I think there shouldn't be a lot of people. There are about 6-7 ATT stores in town and 3 Apple stores.

    My concern is if I should go ATT in the morning and risk for not having any 5S at all, or should I just go to Apple?
    I am doing a cross upgrade, basically I will have to order my phone under the extra line, and then call ATT to switch the IMEI to my own number, not sure if I can even do that at Apple store..can I?

    Any how, what are y'all plans? besides actually having a life and go sleep around 10 and wake up at 7 and go to work?

    That's my plan. I'll swing by my local AT&T store on the way to work and see what they have available. I'm not waiting in any line.

    There won't be any left by the time you get there. My AT&T store has 40 iPhone 5S's and I am already in line right now with three people ahead of me.

    So you're saying that for the greater Las Vegas area, nobody cares about the new iPhone or will stand in line for it? Especially when each locations will get very few. Gluck with that!

    I'm just gonna order online at midnight. Hopefully there won't be a delay of 7-10 days as soon as it goes live but if it does I'll just have to wait.

    Drinking and ordering my phone at midnight. Nothing special.

    I don't know where this concept came from that doing something like camping out in line equates to no life.

    I'm camping out in line because I can. I can afford to. I have the flexibility and the disposable cash in my life to do something like this and I enjoy the experience. Isn't that living life?

    My name is eoblaed, I have a life, and I'm staying the night in line.

    Haha, that's funny. My schedule just worked out so that I'm off tomorrow. When I get off tonight, going to drive past my Verizon store, see what's happening there. Then check back later if there's no activity when I get off.

    I never waited overnight but I did get to an apple store super early one year. It really was an "experience" and the atmosphere was very fun. Everyone was excited, multiple restaurants (starbucks, bagel place, etc) were walking around with breakfast for everyone.

    It really was fun, I have to admit it. I'm sure not for everyone but I would do it again.

    Oh, and i'm a 40+ year old professional woman (VERY busy life)... not a young kid with no responsibility.

    Exactly. It's that whole attitude of "I don't like doing X therefore if you like doing X you're a loser/weird/stupid/gullible/a fool." Have fun!!! :-D

    That's ok.

    I can't figure out how anyone can drink beer with a straight face or enjoy country music.

    I also do extreme endurance events and enjoy the hell out myself while doing them. I know full well there's a lot of people that wouldn't consider that an entertaining use of one's time.

    These differences are one of the many things that make this world interesting.

    In a little college town with 20,000 people in it, at the moment. Cruised by the At&t and Verizon store, no one at either! Just going to keep driving by every hour or so (5 minutes from the house), and see how it goes. I talked to employees at the At&t store over the past couple days. Spoke to three different people, they each said about the shipment:

    1.) 4 16gb black, 1 32gb black, 1 16gb white (silver)
    2.) 4 16gb black, 4 32gb black, 1 16gb white (silver)
    3.) 2 16gb black, 2 32gb black, 1 16gb white (silver)

    So... I'll keep watching movies and checking in, I think as long as I'm 2nd in line, I'm good.

    Happy Hunting to all of you! :apple:
