Was there a "pickup at store" pre-order option?

    Apple = simplicity = one line, new purchases only.

    So here's my big question - how will this affect store lines? I have to assume most people pre-ordered with the numbers they're talking.

    Trial and error. Apple = simplifying = one line this year, howabout that? Cuts down on the amount of people in the store, and thus probably the amount of confusion.

    Also, I pre-ordered and playing the "i have a 9-5" game too. Feel the pain, just beats standing in line and taking up space/time in there.

    I don't think short lines, but less people in the store overall. The amount of people in the pre-order line didn't affect the "buying now" line. I think lines will move quicker because of that though, which is a good thing.

    I think I'm going to get myself in line at 14th Street around 5am. Really want to be at work with a new phone by 9am. I think I'll be OK.

    I don't know if it's a UK/US difference, but I ordered from Apple.com, and there was an in-store pickup option. I decided to skip it and have it delivered - but the option was there.
