Talked to the SF store today and they said that for Thursday and Friday, if you want to come in just for accessories you'll still have to wait in the iPhone 4 line even though you're not buying a phone :(

Well I'm looking for power support crystal film and some other (any other) case besides that bumper case. So far I see nothing online. And again just an FYI since last year they were letting people in; my store had two distinct lines when they opened. iPhone buyers and non-iphone buyers.

I got my 3G from AT&T and later that day went to Apple to get a car charger since the one for the v1 iPhone wouldn't charge the 3G. I walked right in. They may have changed the policy a bit but that's a bit annoying.

i can confirm that you will have to wait in line even if you are not interested in buying an iPhone. Could you imagine if all the free sales people were wasting time selling cases to people walking in while you were patiently waiting in line?

Wasting time helping other paying customers that waited sometimes for hours trying again and again online to purchase an iPhone 4 for pre-order? The blasphemy.

Exactly! I .may still stop by and try on Friday but I agree its very annoying. Only reasoning I can see is that most likely lines will be two, three times longer than ever before. Possibly anyways. And yeah it took me a total of 9 hours to get mine ordered for the 24th, so I think I've paid my dues.

but you could agree that had your order not gone through and you had to wait in line for your phone, you wouldn't like it if the sales people were all helping pre-order customers with cases as they freely walked in without waiting while you were still waiting in line still without a phone right?

So this implies that all Apple stores and salespple will ONLY be selling and activating iPhones tomorrow? Nothing else will be done or sold? This sounds slightly absurd.
