Further iPhone launch day details unearthed

Alright, you already knew what day the thing was launching, then you discovered the time, and finally, you realized that you wouldn't even have to get off work early on the left coast thanks to all sales happening in local time zones. For those still obsessing over what will go down just a fortnight from now, BGR has discovered that "all AT&T stores will be closing up at 4:30PM" while employees set up those cutesy iPhone displays, toss back a few Red Bulls, and hopefully receive their shipments from the (potentially armored) trucks. At 6:00PM, either the doors will open back up or the fanatics will force their way in, and the outlets could stay open "as late as midnight" to satisfy the demand. Oh, and make sure you bring some spare change along -- word on the street is that a bevy of typical accessories (chargers, cases, etc.) will be tempting you as you wade through the checkout line.

That is awesome. This is a semi-good idea except I don't live in a location where a lot of people will be getting it (or know about it for that matter), so all day I'll be sitting outside in the heat looking stupid.

Oh well. It's for a great cause!

I completely agree.

But I don't have any friends that want one, nor any that would wait with me all day. And if no one else shows up it's going to lonely AND aggravating that I waited all that time and I didn't need to.

But again, I agree. As long as they get them here (I have 2 AT&T corporate stores in my area) then I'll probably have one come 6/29 @ 6pm.

the cost/benefit of waiting early (with a potential for no lines) far outweighs the cost/benefit of not waiting early and getting screwed out of a phone.

besides, what's a few hours compared to the SIX MONTHS we've waited for this thing.

No matter what the plan is I'm still taking the whole day off work. I need to be the first one at the store!

Its definite that only AT&T corporate stores will have the iPhone right? Is that a Cingular store too...Is there a way to tell? Or should i just start Calling the cingular stores in my area to see if they have them?..... This whole AT&T or Cingular thing is so confusing to me.
