There is a Cingular store at Turkey Creek...I'm just wondering if the Apple store at West Town will have more iPhones for sale since they are an Apple Store. Seems like they would but who knows. With no preorder I guarantee there will be a line everywhere on the 28th...maybe even the 27th. I say we make sure we are the first two in line...screw everyone else..just kidding.:cool:

im with ya on that one. theres no way im going to camp out and not get a phone. im sure the Apple store will get more phones then the cingular stores, but then again i should prob start running again so i can outrun everyone to the store once the mall opens. theres also a cingular store next to the chilis on kingston pike out by the mall.

oh yeah

I forgot about the one near chillis. Don't matter to me where I camp out as long as I get one. I just don't wanna be at the back of a huge line and someone tell me they only have 5 or 10 at that store. Theres gotta be a cingular store out in the middle of nowhere...somewhere no one would think to go. Of course some where like that probably won't get any until August:cool:

Don't forget to put your pins on the iPHonemap so we can check everyone's pins.

im in for any of them. that one will work for me though. is this the location by the mall? if it is, that may be nice to be close to the Apple store too so we can keep an eye on both.

You should make sure those are corporate stores and not independents. Only the corporate stores will have the iPhone.

BTW, I grew up in Knoxville. Went to UT but left after college and moved out here to sunny CA. All my family still lives there.

6p.m.

At the keynote today..Steve said the iPhone will be shipped at 6.pm on the 29th....so I'm not sure if that means available for purchase or sent to stores. We need to figure that out before we head out.

def. i think im going to go to the store by the mall and wait there the morning of the 29th, and if they decided to wait till 6pm, ill just drive across the street to the Apple store and wait there.

Sounds like a good idea to me. From what I've read he meant "go onsale at 6p.m." but I'm thinkin everyone is going to offer it up when they open...i can't see everyone waiting until 6. There going to jump the gun if they have it.

I know Oak Ridge will have some at 6. It's a corporate store about 15-20 minutes outside of Knoxville. They are shutting down for a couple of hours and are reopening at 6pm to launch. I wonder if that would be a better place to go?

stopped by the store near chilis on kingston pike this afternoon. they had a sign on the door stating that they will be closing at 4pm on the 29th, then reopening from 6-10pm. they even had a stand inside with a large picture of the iPhone on it and the date June 29th. i got too excited, and had to leave the store.
