    I'll be standing in line in my bed. Then I'll go to an Apple store during my lunchtime and pick up a couple of 5S' just like I've done every year.

    Who knows. I've never had a problem, but I may have just gotten lucky. I have a feeling that a lot will stay with their 5 instead of upgrading to the 5s, heck I'm still on the fence if I'm going to upgrade, but I always say that and end up with a new phone anyway.

    Maybe so but I think there will be a lot of people who will upgrade from an older iPhone then the 5 or from another brand/model of phone. I suspect the fact that Apple is not offering the option to preorder means that there may be limited supply and unless you are lucky online or get to a store really early then you may be out of luck.

    Personally I have never waited in line for any product and I don't intend to this time. I will just try to order online. If I can't get one right away I will wait until I can order online or just walk into a store. My iPhone 5 will have to do until then.

    The lines are going to be long because there are no Pre-Orders like previous iPhones.

    Yeah I might order online, but I won't wake up at 3am. If it's sold out then I'll just wait a couple of weeks and get one then, no biggie. I'll pop into the ATT store near me and see what they have and see if I get lucky like I have in the past.

    I'll never wait in line again. I've only done it once, for the iPad 2, waited 3 hours just to have them say they didn't have one for me. Too embarrassing sitting there like an Apple lemming for everyone to see.

    I've camped out for the 3GS, 4S, iPad Retina, and the 5 with people from work (app developers). It's always been a fun experience to meet like minded apple enthusiasts. A couple times people have brought inflatable movie theater screens with projectors as well. I've typically arrived mid afternoon to early evening and been in the first 20 people in line.

    Will wake up 3AM eastern time and see what online ordering looks like. If same day pickup is an option I'll do that.

    Otherwise I'll see what line looks like at 6AM and if it won't impact my time I'll get to work just do that.

    I've only got one thing out of the MANY Apple devices I have at a store other than Apple itself. Better service, biggest supply. Ya, longest lines, but as long as your one of the ones toward the front, that doesn't matter. :D

    I headed over to Wal-Mart to try and get the 4 on lunch day. They said they had gotten ONE to sell. :eek:

    I'll be at Apple Store, King of Prussia. I'll probably get there around 5am on Friday. Is anyone else going to be there?

    I won't be standing anywhere. I will wake up Saturday morning eat my breakfast and drive to the Apple store probably around noon. Walk into the store buy one and drive back home.

    You have to wait in line just for a place to sleep? Man, the economy is worse than I thought.

    But what will you do for lunch?!

    I'll either be there or go to Lehigh valley. I'm not sure about waiting at a mall, especially if we have to wait outside.

    Good luck with that plan. I hope you aren't planning on a particular color/capacity.

    I'll be in the short, fast moving line at Starbucks.

    This years iPhone is best avoided. Before you know it, iPhone 6 will be here. A phone that will really put the 5 S to shame.

    Maybe you'll be ok. People also complain every year about how the Apple stores quickly run out of the most popular models. I think the gold version is going to sell out pretty quickly, but every area is different. Maybe you will just waltz into the store at your leisure and get exactly what you want.
