    I am going to Walmart within three to four hours, and I was wondering if the people at Walmart will get suspicious of me hanging around Walmart for so long.

    nah all you have to say is you are weighing your options between two coffee makers they sell and your indecision is part of your disability. Just remind them of the ADA (americans with disabilities act) and they won't know enough to mess with you. I doubt they would risk the discrimination lawsuit.

    Dude, Make friends with the employees in the wireless department/kiosk so you can be the first one in line.

    There is always someone working the department. You may not see them standing around. But trust. They are there.

    If you go in at 3a.m. and you see an employee in the electronic department just let them know what you're doing, so if a manager or LP inquires about you, they will already know what your deal is.

    Tell them what you're there for. One guy said he had to sign in with someone in the electronics section to secure your iPhone place. Sit at the Mcdonald's inside (do they have one?) and eat 20 pack of nuggets lol

    Pretty soon, you will have a guy follow you around the store. He will be dressed in normal clothes. He will also to pretend to be buying what you are looking at. When you look at him, he will look away like he wasn't watching your every waking move. This is Walmart's undercover security guard.

    Wal-Mart provides free overnight parking to RVers. So I can't imagine why they'd chase after someone killing time for an iPhone.

    Just buy something every half hour. You should be fine.

    Only food doors open at my 24 hour store but help in electronics. They will know what your talking about. Get them to start a list and wait. Go now.

    Lol.

    I just called Walmart, and a ton of people are beginning to call in, but no one is in line. Yet. I think I'm going to leave very soon, just to be safe. I wonder, though, if I can sign a paper guaranteeing me an iPhone 4?

    LOL, Are you serious? What's it gonna say? "iPhone 4 line starts HERE"???

    oops, What a dumb ass, I thought you said "I'm wondering if I can make a sign out of paper to guarantee a iPhone"

    Mistakes happen. ;)

    You don't how hard I laughed at that, though. I got a good chuckle.

    They started the paper and put my name down first. Only name on the sheet.

    ^ Huh?

    When I get there, what should I say? "Can you put a list of names down for iPhone 4?"
