Lining up for the iPhone 5? Join the iMore tailgate party and win!


I showed up at my Verizon last year for the 4S release at 5:45am. I was the only one there until 7:30am. I wonder if the 5 will be different.

There is no one in line at the apple store in novi mi, they don't let people in the mall to line up til 6, should I stay should I go and come back?

good thing i got my imore shirt from the slumber party today, now im ready to camp out for the iphone

We just got kicked off 12 oaks mall in novi mi property, everybody is in the McDonald's parking lot off to the side of the mall, hopefully we can sit here.

Hit the forum thread for some snaps of the fun and frolics in London, it's about an hour after launch time, and the queues were insane, easily a thousand people. Some wearing masks ;-)
