dude, I'll be somewhere!

I'm in Quincy, and haven't decided whether to try Needham/Dedham Cingular store - or Randolph. Where are you thinking of going? I'm on summer vaca as of the 15th, so camping is no problem here. (although my wife will think I'm tapped- good thing I'm getting her one too!) :sick:

Just me (wife definitely won't camp if required) so we should be good. I think it will be busier in downtown stores and Apple stores more so than the 'burbs. I had a nice chat with the Needham store manager yesterday. He doesn't expect an insane rush at his store - so that makes it even more attractive! Plus there's a Krispy Kreme less than a block away! Breakfast then iPhone - perfect!

This is definitely a good combo. Add a large coffee and you are set.

Yup. I can't think of a better way to kick off my new cell service and phone. A nice kreme flavored iced coffee will cap it off perfectly! :laugh2:

ATT owned - and it's the same one!

Dedham/Needham are one and the same. For some reason they list the location as Needham on the website - but it sure seems to me that it's in Dedham. But then again - corporate websites never seem to get location sof stores quite right! And after I pick up the phones - I can go to Costco and harass the cellphone guys in their little booth! (of course I would never do such a thing! - he he he)

early, of course!

Well I live in beautiful North Quincy - so I haven't decided between Dedham and/or Randolph. My thinking is Randolph might be just as crazy as any other store - but Bill at the Dedham store was really nice on the phone yesterday. Since I'm buying 2 phones, I figure he deserves whatever commission he gets for helping answer my questions.

So as of now it looks like Dedham around 7AM. ( I'm up at 5:30 every morning for school/work, so I have no problem getting there early. I really don't think there will be people camping. But it might be covered by Fox25 since they are close by!

What's your plan?

Me too!

I can see it now.

me: Hi honey I'm home with the new phone.
she: "did you say PHONE?"
me: "Uh, yes dear. They only had one in the joint!"
she: "So I guess you'll just have to wait for yours!"
me: "uhhhh, uhhhhhhhhh"

Man I hope they have enough for all of us! :laugh2:

Let's just hope...

there aren't a ton of "less informed" people out there who think that they shall swoop down upon their local ATTingular Store™ and grab 'em all up while we watch in horror!

OK I'm blowing it way out of proportion - but I have to admit, part of me thinks it will be INSANE - and the other says - meh, it's a Friday in June and working stiffs (unlike myself) will be too busy working to hang out at a cellphone store at opening time.

But man isn't this just too much fun!?

I mean, I'm going to Disneyland in 2 weeks and I'm more excited about the damn phone! Bummer I won't be able to watch a movie or two while in flight. But I have my trusty Cowon A2 to hold me over!
