    I reserved an iphone for my mom and forgot my dad. Now i gotta stay in line because preorders are done. So i called the Mac Store and they said that i should be in line around 4am... im not sure because wouldn't everybody be in line around that time... what time should i start to line up? 7:00 pm?

    Get lots of sleep the day before you have to line up. Actually, pitch a tent at 5pm with your food and camp in front of the store. Then wake up to find the Apple Store just about to open and run in, grabbing your iPhone 4 and screaming "YES I GOT IT FIRST!"

    Put up a sensor or something so you know if you sleep past the time that way people dont cut you.

    be there before the store opens. I assume you "reserved" through the iphone app? if so you dont actually have anything on reserve. in the bottom of the email you got it says reservation does not garauntee availability, and that iphones are sold on a first come first serve basis.

    i'd line up around 4ish.

    This is a little off topic, but is it fun to hang out early before the store opens? I haven't had the chance to do it in the past and wondered if people liked waiting for this kind of release?

    Oh man, you're Apple Stores are easier to enter because they're outside. The Apple Store that we have in Edmonton, Alberta is inside our mall.

    Its kind of fun. You meet new people who share a common interest. Everyone (well almost) is calm and nice. I lined up for the iPhone 3GS last year for about an hour (although i had an in-store preorder) and have camped out at Fry's for Black Friday.
