    Default Some iPhone 4 Buyers Already iCamping



    If the early bird gets the worm, perhaps the early bird will also get the new iPhone 4.

    There are scattered reports around the country this weekend of people already setting up camp outside their nearest Apple store to wait in line until doors open on June 24th so that they may be the first to purchase and take home the updated Apple smartphone. As you may have heard in passing, the 4th generation iPhone has already encountered one or two supply problems.

    Apparently the best way to ensure preordering is to take a week (or longer) and stand in line ahead of everyone else looking to purchase the same device. Justin Wagoner of Dallas, for example, is making headlines for being among the "fearless and loyal" Apple fans willing to set up camp and be the first to greet iPhone 4 when it officially arrives Thursday. Wagoner, who pitched his tent Wednesday, has already been in line and slept outside for three nights.

    His only complaint? The heat. "The heat is just killing me," the 25-year-old tells the Dallas Morning News. And with predicted temperatures of at least 100 degrees each day through the end of next week, Wagoner will be sweatin' to the oldies on his iPod until the new iPhone 4 is in hand.

    Although the online preorder program got off on the wrong foot (to say the least) with server crashes and security glitches of epic proportions, it's a safe bet that this dude would still be outside and in line even if he had the choice to painlessly preorder his device. You see, the Dallas native has a tradition going, as this extended wait marks the third time he's gone iCamping ahead of a new iPhone launch.

    At least when June 24th finally does arrive, Wagoner won't have 600,000 people in front of him like many iPhone 4 shoppers encountered at the start of preordering.

    I think it would be a lot of fun to hang out and camp to get the iPhone. I always wanted to do that!

    How can you give that many days of your life away. And if I owned the store and someone came in without bathing for seven days I would send them right back out the door(empty handed).

    Wow, there are a bunch of haters on here. I agree with Jmataska. Maybe he takes his week of vacation every summer at this time just to do this. Maybe he gets laid so much he doesn't need to worry about taking a few days to camp out. Maybe he's independently wealthy or a street pharmacist. Who cares what another person does with their time?

    The guy with the "emo" comment apparently has no idea what that means, and the "idumbarse" guy is the dumb-*** for making up that word.

    Go get your iPhone boy!

    I have a feeling you're the guy in line posting this from your
    3Gs. A week vacation to stand outside a hot sidewalk while strangers walk by you? Oh yea, sounds like it's all good. He get's laid so much he doesn't have to worry? Please....a street pharmacist or a wealthy guy would get some other schmuck to stand in line for him. Don't come on this board trying to be all HIGH AND MIGHTY, take a chill pill, sit back down on your computer chair and keep checking the status on your pre-order....goon.
