  • Confirmed 8AM Launch Time at Apple and AT&T this Friday




    AT&T had already been rumored, and then confirmed, to be launching the iPhone 3G at 8 am this Friday, but Apple has also now confirmed they'll be launching at 8 am, which we mostly assumed, but hadn't seen in writing yet.

    I'd much rather prefer this, as last year I sat in Florida sun from 5 am til 6 pm. That sucked.

      I called my local (Richmond, VA) Apple Store at 6pm today (July 7th) and was told that they had no idea when they were getting them in and at what point they would being selling them. I'n going to call a few of the local AT&T stores tomorrow.

      How early do you guys think we should be out at the AT&T store?? I know for a fact that I am not going to the one and only Apple store here in town becuase no matter what time or what day I go, its always packed!!

      I'm in Indianapolis so...it won't be as bad as some New York or LA stores. What do you guys think...how early are you guys planning to go?

      well the time i have to go is already made for me because my apple store is in a mall so the mall doesn't open to eight anyways. So i guess it will be a race to the apple store when the mall opens

      I live about 2 minutes away from the Burlingame Apple store by car, and I have my alarm set to go off that morning at 5:45AM. Anyone else going to the Burlingame Apple store? I'd be happy to hold the line for someone.

      I will probably go out at midnight and wait for it.

      Midnight?????

      Isn't that a little TOO early?? I was thinking more on the line of 5am-6am.

      Maybe you should just set up a tent next to the door now.... it's never too early.

      So I am assuming that's your gameplan??

      I'll go at 5am, how about that. I think that should work.

      I'm meeting two friends to grab a few drinks at about 6am, then we're heading to the store around 6:45ish. Our only dilema is which store we're going to go to, since attwireless.com lists 5 stores with the Apple iPhone within 5 miles of us.
