    I pre-ordered an iPhone 4 16GB on June 15th. Is it necessary for me to camp out the night before, or do you recommend just showing up earlier than 7?

    If it helps, the store I am going to is: http://apple.com/manhasset

    All suggestions appreciated,
    Alex

    I would go a little earlier. Even if you preordered they might have only gotten a few.

    What's the point of preordering then if they take more preorders than they have?

    I can't say for sure they are sold out everywhere, so I can't say it's impossible. I can feel pretty confident in saying it's gonna be tough.

    You may also wanna check out a Best Buy too. I know there is a site that is posting how many each Best Buy is getting.

    I can post the link if you'd like. It'd just take a bit of digging for me to track it down again for you.

    Haha, alright. I was just wondering if it was advised. So would you recommend 6 or even earlier?

    Well, I just got an email from Apple advising me to be there by 7 so I'm not really sure what to make of that myself to be honest. I tried calling the store but they didn't answer.



    On a side note, looking at your sig, you've had some rotten luck with you iDevices.

    Hahaha, yea, I know. Same with my computers. My computer of 4 years (I'm n now) has broken beyond what I thought was fixable. I bought a new one which had bootup issues. Traded that for an HP dv7 and that one had MAJOR issues resulting in me sending it out numerous times finally ending in it not turning on at all and out of warranty and HP not doing anything about it. =/

    On Topic: Yea, I got that email as well. I am just going to show up at about 6 if anything. Probably bike there. No chance my mom could wake up my brothers and take 'em to drop me off xD.

    I would go just for the experience. I preordered from Best Buy, but I'm gonna be at a concert the 23rd at a venue right next to an Apple store. Might just chill there for a couple hours
