    i know... I think some do it for the attention and publicity though to camp out a week before its release.. I love the iphone but not enough to spend very long standing outside an apple store I would rather sit back home and wait even if it means waiting an extra two weeks or month even..

    When I got the iPad I went into the apple store instead of ordering it online as I got it the same day instead of having to wait but not now it will be busy, though I don't know how the uk apple stores are? I doubt as bad as they get in America lol

    I got my nano sim from three uk as well and a free adaptor so everything is ready though strangely enough when ringing 333 the Indians refused to give me one.

    Well because my current number will be transferred to the nano sim it will mean I am in able to use it until Friday so the adaptor basically allows me to use the nano sim in my iPhone 4 until I get the next iPhone or if I ever need to use a micro sim phone for what ever reason it's basically a little black plastic thing where the nano sim fits in and turns it into micro sim size

    Oh that's weird did you get a new number? Because I was never given an option to get the nano sim and wait to transfer the number and activate it but it saves the hassle when the iPhone 5 arrives

    when i asked for the nano they asked did i want to keep my current number,i said i did so its supposed to be all set up with my number ready to activate when i install it in the new phone,thats what they did last year when i got the 4s.....seems like the indians don't all sing from the same hymn sheet eh!

    First in line, cool! Enjoy the night out, and be happy it's not black friday weather.

    And I agree, pics...

    If nothing else they will help kill time.

    On another note, with everyone who pre-ordered not getting theirs until tomorrow by 3, you'll probably have your's before the majority of us.

    Well at 5PM I decided I was going to get up at 1AM and head for the Sprint store. At 815PM I was rushing my oldest daughter to the ER. She will be having her appendix taken out when you guys are getting phones. Wish I could be there! Be safe.
