    Are you in line already?

    People are selling their front spots in line for $500-$1000 at the Michigan Ave store in Chicago. Insanity.

    I plan on going to the less absurd (but actually larger) Chicago store around 5:30am. I'm sure I will be in line for a couple of hours, but it's a huge store, so I hope they will have enough stock.

    Good luck as most stores in the Chi will definitely be packed at that hour and bank on waiting more than 2 hours.

    I'm planning on going to my nearest AT&T store at 4:30AM and hopefully there won't be a crazy line yet.

    I'd do it. Not so much for the phone, but for the experience.

    Nah, free country. Anyone sitting in line for a cell phone overnight is sad and crazy and I worked at an Apple Store which had it's grand opening during the first iPhone launch. All I can say is...Nope.

    Where do you live? I was just at the store by me. It's 90% teenage nerds. They have security all night. It's the iPhone not the new Jordans.

    I intend to join the queue sometime after store opening (UK) to get some accessories. My phones on preorder through Orange, so who knows when its going to turn up.

    To the people in line, what accessories are you going to expect them to have in stock? And what will you pick up with the new phone.

    Normal nights hubby and I sit outside to smoke, so now just sitting at a retail store. Now there is no wifi, so I am having to use hotspot, I planned on watching Netflix but might use to much bandwidth. Told hubby to bring some DVD.s
