I’ve done the whole line thing for a few previous iPhone releases and the original iPad. Now I just pre-order my new devices. I’m not a fan of getting up early and dealing with people. I’d rather just pay in advance and have it delivered to my house on launch. I’m lazy.

I pre-ordered mine and it is already on its way – UPS is delivering it tomorrow!  I can’t do the line thing.

Congrats on the new phone!

I preordered this time because I could see that the iPhone 6 Plus was going to sell out and I didn’t want to take any chances that I wait in line and don’t get what I want.

I went to android for awhile because Iwanted a bigger phone, but I am back to iPhone because I just can’t stand the constant force close and required reboot to keep that monster of an android phone running smoothly. I want it to just work without me having to change and customize all day, and that is what all my previous iPhones are able to do.

Sorry, didn’t mean to make this so long. Back to you: YAAAAY! New phone!!!

I won’t do it for a new phone, but I have waiting in line for book and movie releases, so I understand the hype. 🙂

I queued at midnight for the final Harry potter book. That was a good atmosphere as loads of people dressed up and the book store ran competitions and readings. My contract is due and I think I’ve decided to get a galaxy note this time round, but I’ve loved my iPhone for the past two years I just get bored easy lol

I can’t think of a single thing I’d wait in a really long line up for, I’ll walk out of Starbucks if the lines too long.. There’s a sneaker shop near my office that hosts overnight line ups pretty often for shoes. Its crazy talk! Your lucky to have gotten the phone with no hassle! I’m due for a new phone but would be fine with a 5. I currently have a 4s.

Splodge2003:  I did queue for Harry Potter, and I’m not even a fan.. At all!! I was in London with my family when it was released and my brother was dying for it. We were walking home from dinner at like 1 am and the streets were MADNESS. It was so cool to see everyone dressed up and excited, we went back to the hotel and slept for a few hours..

We walked over to Waterstones.. People had been sleeping in the streets and we walked right in when they opened and bought a bunch of copies! I guess there’s excitement in being the first one with a copy.. Hence the hours and hours of waiting.

I just called in and got mine, I didn’t even think about a line at a store (or a phone wait), I called and upgraded in about 10 minutes, no ridiculous wait time or worries.
