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?

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 ;-)
