    hey, I'm waiting in line at the Apple store in Columbia Maryland right now in a line that's about 50 people long and wanted to know what other stores are like today- Saturday. Post where you are now or where you've been and what the line situation is.

    Hope they got their stuff together today. I was ~50 people back yesterday at opening (at that store). Didn't get into the store until 11:00, didn't get out the door with a phone until after 1:00. That store was ridiculous yesterday. Everyone was confused, lol. Good luck.

    I will probably go to Paramus NJ at 10:00 and if there's no more than 100, i'll stay. I'll keep up to date. I think that the apple store stocks are very very healthy.

    => engadget had a line update for amost every apple store [very useful]

    Bridgewater NJ

    In line at 7:45AM About 45 people then. Store not yet open. Decided my time was worth more. Did some other errands in the mall, stopped by just now, line about 100 deep, probably not all buying phones.

    Line at ATT store about 20 deep , but they are sold out, so probably just activation woes.

    I got version 1 so I will wait until next week when it calms down a tad.

    well I got here at 7:15 and I have about 25 people in front of me. They open at 9. An employee came out and told us that they have very few 8GB and only white 16GB but that he's expecting a shipment between 9 and 12... So I'm waiting! I came yesterday and couldn't wait in the line cuz it was wayyyy too long so I have to get it today!

    Have you ever gone to Paramus NJ ? Would you suspect that Bridgewater is more busier than Paramus? If the stores not even open and doesn't have black 16 gig for sale i think it's going to be as bad as yesterday as in 100 ppl are staying for a shipment between 9 and 12 !

    i went there yesterday to buy a case for my new iphone around 5ish. had to wait in a different line for like 10minutes just to get inside.

    the line for iphones had to have over 200 people waiting. line was long as hell. im lucky i only had to wait in a line of about 85 people at the at&t store yesterday.

    Update: they told the last 30 or so people that they could not guarantee availibility and they started to move the line BUT VERY SLOW... Like 2 at a time! I'm waiting anyway though. Since I want the 16GB I'm just going to wait and when I get to the front, let those who are getting the 8GB go in front of me.

    what really pisses me off is the online availability checker said they had stock in all models! What's up with that?!?!? So don't trust that, call the store first!

    Question, I am going to port my phone # from Verizon to AT&T. What password or PIN are they talking about needing? My voicemail PIN? My online account password for Verizon's site?

    Phoenix, AZ (Biltmore)

    Neither of the 2 closer stores is reported as having the 16GB in black, so here I am at the Biltmore store. (Never been here before. Nice place.) I showed up at 6:35 and was 4th in line. Hopefully they have more than 3 in black. :)

    I'm in the same situation and I think they want the account password (if there is one) which is the one they ask for when you call. Definitely not the voicemail one that would not make sense.

    Never been to the Paramus store. Sorry.

    A co worker said the line is 'closed' at the Menlo Park Mall in NJ. There are enough peopel in line currently to exhaust supplies in inventory. Second hand knowledge only, so YMMV.

    On Apple site, it has the inventory checker for each store. It will show available if there is at least 1 of the size/color of the iPhone you want.

    I just called Verizon to find out my ETF and they didn't ask for a password (they asked for last 4 of my SS#), so my account must not have one.

    I talked with Verizon about this yesterday and the rep on the phone said my account did not have a password. However, she could set one up. I went ahead and had them put a password on the account, so I could give Apple/ATT ~that~ password.

    That said, I got bucked around enough yesterday to so many different lines that I never got a phone.
