    The carrier stores will have less stock but potentially be less crowded. The Apple stores will have more stock but will crowded. I plan to go after September 20 to my carrier stores.

    I'm planning to wait about a week after release(if I can contain myself that long) and go to Best Buy to take advantage of their trade-in program. I should be able to get ~$230 for my 16GB 4S according to the Best Buy website.

    Still trying to figure this out too. My friend is a mgr at my local verizon store and said they don't know if they'll have any on release day or not. Just tell me where to stand in line already. Lol

    If you want to be sure to get one on launch day, go to an Apple Store and get there several hours early.

    I could get $360.00 or $378.00 for my 32GB iPhone 5 from Best Buy. I'm just hoping the trade-in price doesn't drop through the floor after the 20th.

    That is what I'm planning on doing Thursday night/early Friday morning. There's at least 3 of them in my area to choose from.

    ^ That's why you're better off going to an Apple Store.

    Yes, for those that must have it on the 20th, that is the best option. I'll try to order online and wait, hopefully I can get one in a decent time, if not, I'll just wait. Don't want to stand in line, don't want to be associated with this :D

    What in the world is going on in this girl's head. They should use her for a commerical to encourage kids to stay in school.

    Well, it's comforting to know that for the time she was waiting in line in 2012 to buy her Apple 5. the shallow end of the gene pool was for a short while a bit less crowded.

    That wasn't a real interview. It's just another staged mockery of iOS users.

    I'm not so sure about that. I couldn't find any evidence that it was staged, and I looked hard. :)

    The guy is a comedian. It was pretty obvious to me even before Googling him. Some of her answers were fairly forced and unrealistic. I've talked to enough crazy people in my life to be able to spot a fake/actor. :D
