    Been discussing my plans with editwizard, I think we'll be hitting up the mall early the 29th, I happened to own businesses in our local mall with an Apple store, so I got the in with the security guards and such. Nice. I'll be in well before the doors to the mall open... so i'll be sure to get one of those 40 iPhones per Apple store.

    Nice. If its anything like the Apple stores, it will probably just be a box that says "do not open til the 29th". Although you DO have to add it into inventory etc.. hmm. PICTURES if you get it early!

    I spoke with our wherehouse manager, he said we won't have it opening day, I work for MSWireless in California, AR for Att, are any other AR's going to have it opening day or just Apple and ATT retail stores?

    Apologize if this has been covered in another thread/post. What is the scoop on waiting lists for the iPhone??. Apple/ATT have made it quite clear that it is to be sold first come first serve but if you call 7 different ATT stores you will get 7 different answers. I just want the process to be fair. Don't mind wating in line to get my phone but if they are all "pre-sold" by the time the doors open these stores are going to have riots on their hands.

    I don't know what they are planning to do for fair distribution but I can definitely see another PS3 phenomenon happening - especially on eBay in the days and weeks after initial launch.

    Where did you hear that each Apple store is only going to have 40 phones per store? After waiting this long for the phone, shortages should be non-existent. I was planning on hitting my local Apple Store a half hour before they opened, the mall is such a hoity-toity place I doubt they will allow campers on the premises.

    Knowing how Apple has handled all their merchandising up until this point, it seems likely that it will be on a first come first serve basis and that they will limit how many there are going to be so it keeps demand for the product up. They did the same thing with each new iPod. And unfortunately I'm in an area that doesn't have AT&T/ Cingular as a service provider so I won't be able to afford one... (sigh). Unless anyone would be willing to help a college student out? Eh, probably not. Oh well.



    Proud to be an Apple user since 1990... at the age of 4.

    Right about the mall not allowing lines. None-the-less people will be outside waiting. I, fortunately, will be inside the mall already.

    I hate to say it, but if the excitement continues to build, then I'll probably be camping out on the night of the 28th. Who knew that teaching would have cell phone benefits!

    gotta be an At&t store for me. The closest Apple store is in Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta and I don't feel like driving up there and fighting 3 M people for one.

    Hey Cols. I just talked with one of our Apple Stores here in Northern Virginia and she says they haven't been notified of any caps on the number of phones per store. Tyson's Corner is a mall the size of a city here and they do a LOT of business so we'll see what happens. I'll be up there Monday to Schmooz somebody and lay the groundwork for the 29th ;>)

    Sounds like you've got a plan! I'm just hoping to be one of the first 40 or so to get one at my Cingular/At&t store. If I don't, I'll be on Apple.com or Cingular.com by noon on the 29th.

    I plan on being outside of the Cingular/At&t store from closing the night before until 9AM when they open. IF they sell out before I go through the doors, then it's in the car to go to the 10th Street store (downtown). If that store's allotment is depleted, then it's on to the kiosk store in the mall. If all three are sold out, then I'll be ordering online from Apple.com or At&t.com. Visiting those three stores will take at least two hours or so.
