    If your camping out, please post your experience and if you can, post some photos of the lines. The lines are probably going to be crazy since there's no preordering.

    I was first in line in Knoxville, TN last year. I'll be sleeping tonight. Just not enough has changed to upgrade, though do not think I am not fighting the urge.

    I am off tomorrow, but I'm not so impatient I can't wait a week or so for one from China. I do have an alarm set for 2:45am EST to order one online.

    Yeah, I'm in Vegas. I didn't want to have to wait a week for shipping so I'm doing the line thing for the first time since the 3G came out.

    Bad news for campers...(sorry Mindi)
    Just spoke to a Sprint rep I've dealt with last 3 launches. Always had good intel and a big help.

    His txt from company phone:

    "I would give you a number but to be honest our preorders (in store gift card 'reservation') have all of them taken. Bottom line... 0-5s's until at least Sat, maybe monday best case"

    He called me a few minutes later on his personal device, said busiest corporate store in his district only had 15 5S's, all Space Grey, and they were already spoken for...

    Keep in mind this was from one of the big carriers and the territory is a big metropolitan area.
    Don't want to even guess what small town stores may be getting.

    I would expect Apple stores to have a better selection, but bigger lines as well.

    Good luck!

    Mindi's not camping out at Sprint. She wouldn't be caught dead near a Sprint store.
