I called the corporate AT&T store by me to ask when they're opening next Friday and they said 9 (normal opening hour). I admit it's been a while since I waited in line at an AT&T store (maybe 4 years ago at a different location) but I could SWEAR that they opened early for the iphone release day. It really makes sense that they would open the same time as the Apple stores (8 right?). Has anyone heard differently? Maybe they'll announce it closer to next week??
