Let me start off by saying I don't really care all that much and have zero desire to wait in line. With that said I dropped my phone a couple months ago and totally smashed the screen. I'm also sitting on a $200 apple gift certificate so I want to pick up the new one ASAP. I work 2 blocks from the 5th ave store, so Id like to preorder and pick it up on the 24th.

So will I have to wait in line on launch day or could I just go over on my lunch break and grab it? Thanks guys.

5th ave will probably have the biggest lines. i'd suspect that the lincoln center store to be a little easier to get one on launch day. but what do i know

I waited in line when the iPhone 3G came out and it wasn't worth it. Every time they launch a new iPhone the activation servers crash that day. Just order it online and get it shipped to you.

I waited in line for over 5 hours at the 5th ave. cube on the 3g launch day. Beyond not worth it, majorly regretted it.

As much as I say I don't care, I'd still like to have it as soon as possible. Can't things shipped to my apt and I work for a huge company, packages usually take a few days to make it to my desk after they're delievered.

So what was it like with the 3GS? If you preordered the phone, could you just walk in on launch day and pick it up?

Yes or the day before (happened with the iPads apparently).

I doubt you'll need to line up before the store opens. But be prepared to deal with a wait and a crowd. Being in NY I'm sure a lot of apt dwellers will do what you're doing.

can someone explain how this preorder thing will work tomorrow? you basically just pay for one? so you will probably have to stand in line tomorrow to preorder and then again on launch day to pick it up? jesus.
