    I went by mine today just to check over my account info.
    I also asked how many units they might have for Tuesday for walk-ins.

    they said 100-200.

    That seems like a fair amount..
    I figure a lot of people grabbed iphones from pre-orders and the past few days.

    How many people have been out of luck and are planning on going early to ATT?
    Do you think there will still be long lines?
    What time you going?

    Did ATT ever say its a 1 unit per person policy? I wanna grab one for me and the GF (whos on the same family plan) for a gift.

    thanks!

    100-200? That's a ton. How large is the city in which you live? My local store only has a couple of dozen in stock. Luckily though, there's about 4 AT&T stores within 10 miles of my house. I'm going EARLY. I'll try to be there at about 3 AM. What time do you plan on getting there?

    I went to the ATT store here in Folsom , CA. Its a nice area...big and popular?..not really. But he did say 100-200 and those WERE NOT accounted for on a list..

    I dont THINK that many people will be there lined up..so i might go by like 8am...i dont care if im a bit back in the line.. i just want the phone..and i dont wanna be up too early...

    then again..thats why im asking now.. trying to get an idea of a good time to go by.

    EDIT
    I also asked him if he personally thought it was going to be a long line..he said hes seen all the other launches and yes it will be big...
    but..
    This is the first time ATT is waiting to sell days after the launch.. so I dont personally think it will be as big..
    or at least thats what i hope.. anyone else feel that way?

    8 AM? The store opens at 7 Am on Tuesday for the release, just letting you know. You would be amazed at how many people will be there. Apple, Best Buy, WM, and Radio Shack have all sold out. A lot of people are gambling on getting one on Tuesday as some of the hype will have died down.

    The majority of stores will open at 7 AM. You should definitely call them up and ask, but all the ones near me open at 7. I do think the line will be long. Folsom is a midsized city, right? I live in Brentwood, not too far away and close in size? The guy at my store said he expected people to start lining up from 4-5 in the morning.

    I will be doing the same. Question. What do I need to do this upgrade? I'm a new AT&T customer and my mom's name is on the receipt. I still haven't opened the box or anything. Will they allow me to upgrade the phone?

    Before everyone rushes out to AT&T Tuesday, you might want to check with the store. My store said they “might” have walk-ins Tuesday. Right now they have no stock.

    My store said they would have phones for walk-ins.

    still curious if its 1 per person or not

    Apple had a 2 phones per person policy, don't see why AT&T wouldn't do the same.

    I'm considering going to the At&t store. I purchased a 3GS a couple of weeks ago and need to return it to Best Buy first. I heard if you exchange phones in At&t that it takes up to 3 days for the upgrade eligibility to go back. Does this depend on the store? Anyone know?
    I'm on a list at Best Buy, but it doesn't seem like they'll get stock for a while.

    It takes a while when you purchase the phone at any place other than AT&T. Best Buy, Radio Shack, Apple do not make it as easy for returning phones as AT&T is.

    here is my theory..

    There are LOTS more ATT stores then Apple.
    Apple has already been sending out and selling in store a bunch if iPhones..
    like what.. a Million maybe so far?

    with these factors..
    I dont think lines will be huge.. compared to the Apple opening lines..
    yes there will be lines..but not 100's of people

    anyone else think this is a valid thought?
    or whishful thinking?
    haha

    Somewhat. Only the hardcore Apple fans would have gone to an Apple Store in my opinion. The somewhat sane iPhone fans would simply plan on going on Tuesday. I do expect lines, but not as long as the ones Apple had on Thursday. Maybe 20-30 in my opinion

    Thanks for the quick response. Since I'm a brand new customer, I should probably just wait until Best Buy gets stock, and if not, I'll be okay with the 3GS. Way better than my Motorola Droid I had.

    I dont really even hold a phone in that manner..
    and im sure its not as crazy and some people seem..

    worse comes to worse they will have an update or recall to fix the problem..

    I would just rather get the phone out here before i head home to NY where its going to be much harder

    I don't see anything new coming in a couple of weeks? If a model with something designed to fix the reception issue comes out within a month, I'll just return my 4 and get the newer one. I have 30 days from the data of purchase to return it ;p
