    I voted yes because I want to, but I will probably end up buying it at a store once the supply meets the demand (in probably 2 months).

    If it's going to be 3am for you then you should just go to bed early (e.g., 8pm) and set the alarm for 3am. That way if you have to stay up for a while because of site loading delays, then at least you won't be tired.

    I'm going to nap and set an alarm for 2:55. I'm not convinced that it's necessary to pre-order this one the first possible second, but it will be a fun adventure. And why risk not getting the phone on day 1?

    2 am here for me central time. Probably going to stay up because if I try to sleep early I'll snooze past 2 :p

    Oh yeah! I fear my 3G is about to die anyway. I haven't treated myself to a new cellphone since the original iPhone so I'll stay up for this one!

    Nope I wouldn't be surprised if it's the lowest sales launch of an iPhone

    Updating my wife's 3GS to 4S. I'm going to wait and see what's up with the Nexus Prime that will be announced next Tuesday.

    Does anyone know if you can pre-order and specify that you want to pick up at the Apple Store or do you have to have it mailed to you?

    Last year, you only had two options to order online, AT&T and apple. Both which were hammered. I'm guessing things will be a little easier now that there's AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and apple to choose and order from and the demand probably won't be as high as last years release. I'll be staying up, but I won't be ordering anything.

    Yes, I'm planning to stay up late to pre-order a replacement for my 3GS. Don't want to get anywhere near an Apple store on launch day. Figure I'll try using the Apple Store iOS app, since that worked better for people last year.

    With that said, I'm sure the interest in the 4S will fall far short of the 4. It would be nice if the crowds were 3GS-esque...I walked into an Apple store the day after launch in 2009 and picked one up with no wait. Store was deserted.

    12:01AM isn't so late... but yup - i'll be there tomorrow night to place my order for the 64GB iPhone 4S!

    I've done the waiting-in-line-thing once... and I'm never going to do that again. Even if there's some weird shipping delay and I get my iPhone 4S a week late, that's just fine with me...
