    I'm not. I'm in my comfy clothes on the couch. Ordered mine online. Delivery tomorrow. :D

    But who is at an :apple: Store right this minute waiting in line? What's it like? Are there promotional companies giving away t-shirts?

    Definitely glad I pre-ordered. Would not want to be one of those guys lining up now.

    Ha me too. So glad I stayed up late to get my preorder through. Did the same thing last year for the 4S. I played the waiting game for the i4 and had a horrible time

    I'm in the Oct 5 club, iOS 6 on my 4S can hold me over until then. :D

    I'm planning to get there at 6am and have no issues.

    Aside from waiting an hour for everyone in front of me to check out

    I have waited in the past, it is a fun experience, but it sure has worn off in recent years. The original iPhone was great, same with the iPad, but now that I have it out of my system, I'll just wait on my couch. ;)

    Yea that's my thinking. Got tired of it and letting UPS handle it is much easier

    I couldn't imagine camping out all night for the phone. I got in line around 5am for the iPad 2. I wouldn't even wake up at 3am to pre-order. I ordered at 11:30am on Friday during lunch and still getting it delivered tomorrow by 3pm. :D

    Roll call of people having fun out there then some people here will have the Samsung bully like hypocritical attitude as if it is something to be ashamed of - there are something we enjoy or thought to be fun doing in life that others may find ridiculous.

    Disclaimer: I never fall in long lines for any product. I am planning to do that someday (if I am off at work & weather is good) just to piss off Samsung and the iHaters. And it sounds like it's fun especially if it means more sleepless nights for Samsung people. Lol

    I picked up both my 3G and 4 at the apple store on launch day in Washington and there were multiple people trolling the lines with wads of cash wanting to buy places in line. I was offered $200, then $400. I was seriously debating the $400, since it would buy my phone, when the guy upped it to $800 and the person behind me jumped on the chance really fast!

    Everyone within a few spaces mouths' dropped, and someone said something like "you are going to pay $800 dollars to take someone's spot in line to spend another $300-$500. Seriously??"

    I heard from someone later that the store didn't even run out of stock till 5 pm. Meaning if the idiot had just joined the line he probably would have received a phone.

    Right. Your standing in a line that you don't really want to stand in (just to spite others) will surely teach them a lesson.
