Still have to wait in line with a reservation?

    I reserved a 32GB iPhone 4 for in-store pickup on the 24th since the online option wasn't functioning.

    So now I am guaranteed to get one on the 24th but do I still have to wait in the (assumed) horrendous lines?

    They'll just be a 'less' horrendous line, but most likely still a line. ;)

    depends on where you are and what time you go but yes count on a line.

    When you do a first day order, you have to join the party line! Luckily, the "reserved line goes quicker than does the one for the nimrods who didn't reserve...:eek:

    Don't they have to give iPhones to the people with the pre orders first?

    I pre ordered my phone at a best buy mobile and they are going to make an appointment the day before the release of the iphone, so I can just walk in and pick it up.

    I'm the first person who pre ordered at the best buy mobile in the mall. I arrived 15 minutes before they opened. I think most people don't know that best buy mobile is accepting pre orders too.

    When I reserved one last year, they had a separate line for people who reserved iPhones and I was told the phone would be held for me until the end of the day.

    At the Ann Arbor Apple Store last summer, they had us split into 2 lines: preorder and no preorder. I believe they just had a certain number of devices per group... didn't hear anything about them actually holding the phones for the people who preordered.

    I plan to get there early to make sure I get my iPhone 4 on launch day.

    According to the e-mail I got from Apple, it says that they'll hold my reserved iPhone 4 until close of business that day.

    That being said, I don't plan on giving anyone the option of selling mine to someone else; I'll be there when they open. :D
