    Anyone headed out to Summit Mall late tonight/tomorrow for the launch event? Just curious :) I'll be there!

    What time are you getting there?

    The line will form outside before 7am and at 7am the mall will open the doors at the food court entrance and walk us to the Apple store where we can continue to wait in line until 8 when they will open and begin selling.

    I started a thread a few days ago. I'll be there around 5am.

    Also I didn't know which door is going to be open, so good to know it's the food court one. Where'd you hear that from? I also thought doors open at 6am...

    I talked with someone at the mall on Tuesday :)

    ----------

    Their response: Hi Shawn!

    Signs will be posted on all mall entrance doors directing Apple customers to stand in line outside the food court entrance. The food court entrance will open at 7am and Apple customers will be walked to the Apple store where they can stand in line until the store opens at 8am.

    All other mall entrances will open at 7:30am as usual.

    Apple is planning to have hot chocolate available to customers standing in line. Good luck in securing your new iPhone V and enjoy the experience!

    Would love to know what is going on up there. Gonna drive in for launch but am 1.5 hours away and don't want to be surprised with a huge line. If anyone is around a heads up would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm headed up to scope things out around 2:30, ill post here what I see. I'd imagine things won't start to get crazy until 5:30 or 6, but km not taking any chances

    Any update on the line. Thinking of heading up at 7:30am or so but don't want to waste a trip.

    This would be my first launch day event... what, historically, has been the availability after the initial "rush"? Is the Iphone 5S supply challenge similiar to any other Iphone previous?

    Thanks!

    Line isn't too bad ATM. Starting to get a bit longer. I'd guess about 50-65 in line? The sleepers in the front are hard to count though :p

    About 30 left in line. They have every carrier and model in Space Gray except 16GB AT&T still available. White and Gold are sold out. Everyone in line has a ticket.

    Seeing this thread, I had to say "Hi", born in Akron and many of my childhood memories are at that mall. Okay, back to the meet ups.

    I had a change of plans. Apple's website was down for way too long. I planned to pick it up in store but ended up going through Verizon. Guess I'll at least avoid the lines.

    I'll be out around that time. I want to get at least some sleep tonight versus standing out there all night.

    Apple Store at Summit Mall had plenty of the plus's. I was in line with a guy from the att corporate store. He said no Att store in NE Ohio got any of the plus's. Plenty of the regular size 6's. He didn't know why this was. I almost went to a att store to camp out. Glad I didn't. I got my Att 128gb space grey 6plus no problems.
