My friends want to wait but I have work at 9am to 5pm and might not be worth the hassle of waiting in line.. Last year not a single AT&T/Apple store ran out of iPhones (at least not in NJ).

OK so.. here is my 3G iPhone "waiting in line" experience.

Where I live, there is a stand-alone local AT&T store. But what most people don't know is.. theres another AT&T store in the mall right across the street.. so while there are tents and dozens of campers outside the store. My friend and I just sat alone outside the mall and laughed at all the people who didn't know about the AT&T store at the mall.

So.. it was about 7AM and more and more people kept on coming, around 20 as of 7AM. By 8AM, there were over 35 people and we were all waiting to go inside. At 8:04 they finally let us in, I was the second person to walk into the store behind my friend.. So, they let us go in 5 people at a time (since they only had 5 staff per customer for the iPhone activations).

So I walk in with my friend and I was just listening to the AT&T guy talk with my friend while the other people were getting their phones and going through the process. When I went to go, all 5 staff were occupied with customers. So I just thought, ok, its only 5 people, no way they would run out of iPhones. So I waited about 30 minutes because they had some problems with the activations... When it was my turn to go up, the guy asked me what I wanted, I told him a 16GB black, he goes to the back and comes back empty handed and tells me they're out of 16GB blacks... so pretty much, I waited about 5 hours, was the second person to walk into the AT&T store, and the first person to walk out empty handed... lol..

After that, my friend and I both went to an Apple store about 15 minutes away and the places was packed with at least 150 people in line and for the 20 minutes we were there, none of them moved a single step.. so we just left..

As of now, I still do not have an iPhone.. maybe today or tomorrow the AT&T store will restock up..

Took this pic of people waiting on line on Friday night at mall closing. This was in Las Vegas (I'm vacationing) in the shopping center across from the Wynn.
