    I was just wondering what time people were going to camp out. I was thinking I would go at midnight on Thursday night (technically Friday). I want to go a little earlier but I my laptop (bringing to watch movies) doesn't last long and I don't want to get too bored. On the other hand I want to ensure that I get a phone. I wonder if I could bring an extension cord and if they have an outside plug, LOL.

    So yeah, What time are you people going to get there?

    If I wasn't on vacation, I'd say I'd be at work that day. But since I preordered it, I think I'll get up around 8AM and wait for the FedEx guy to show up.

    I'm still up in the air on how i'm getting mine....

    My 2 choices right now are Buy from Apple.com have it shipped to my house on the 19th... or

    Go stand in line at the ATT store, with NO pre order. If i do this then i will go at Midnight, and bring my PSP some games, and a spare battery =) :)

    I went to Best Buy the morning the Palm Pre came out, not to wait for the Pre but because I had just gotten off work and I needed a USB extension. Regardless, when they opened the doors there were two guys waiting in line for the Pre... Best Buy had 50, I think it'll be the same for the 3G.

    Enjoy your camp!

    I will be doing the same if I can get my lazy self out of bed at 5:30. If not, I'll get there at 6:30. Having one with my name on it takes the edge off.

    Apple: 6:30-7
    I'm gonna drug all the people in the line by giving them free coffee (ben folds). It'll work.

    I am getting to AT&T around 6:30-7:00. I pre-ordered mine so I am not worried about not getting one. I would go later in the day but I have to work.

    Gonna get to work at about 7AM like I do every day, and depending on if it gets to my house by lunch or not I might go home and pick it up.

    If not it will be a nice post-rushhour post-work week gift :)

    So I guess people who pre-ordered aren't going early....I was thinking of camping even though I got a pre-order. I was wanting to be the FIRST person to get the iPhone at the store I purchased it at....weird but I just find some fun in that.

    I'll probably go to the Apple store during lunch break or either in the morning... mine is "reserved" whatever that means in Appleland.

    I was wondering it myself. I heard that most Apple Stores didn't run out of them last year. I have one "reserved" but that doesn't mean much of anything apparently, and since I am on a family plan, I can't pre-order it.

    I'm on the fence. I'm a line veteran, waited in line at best buy on Thanksgiving day at 12:00 am and 11 am two and three years ago (last years deals were way too lackluster), so I'm not worried about the actual waiting.

    But the Apple Store I want to go to, while in an OK area, is also a college town which has had five robberies (2 I believe armed) in the past 3 months, so i'm afraid if I bring my MBP i'm not going to leave with it :(.

    Decision Decisions....

    Still I'll probably go out at about 2-3 am. It actually gets light out pretty early and there is a starbucks that's open at five and is well trafficked.

    BTW I 'have a life' i'm just not the type of guy that complains when he doesn't get his way because he didn't roll out of bed soon enough. As soon as I get my stuff its off to work :D

    I'm just gonna show up at 7 AM like I was told. Pre-order. Where I live isn't that big. Get in and out as fast as I can to get back to sleep. Should be back in bed by 7:45.
