    for the new iphone. I've been waiting for the 3g model since last year. I think I may hit up nyc store and just join the nuts out there.

    anyone else camping out?

    There was never a shortage with the first models. Why bother?

    no fucking way I'll camp out for ANY phone. I'll just pick it up from the AT&T store by my office...

    i camped out for an hour and a half for a wii...thats the only time i will ever do something like that, i don't have the patience.

    i did spend about 3 weeks searching target, walmart, best buy, toys r us every morning. it was good for me though, started my day off early and i got tons of stuff done, as compared to sleeping in till 11 and then going to class.
    the irony is that i hardly use my wii now, which seems to be the same for lots of people


    i'd like to get an iphone eventually. i'm on a family plan through at&t, my number is the main number with 2 other lines. i'm not sure what my options are. i'm guessing a jailbroken iphone? i wouldn't need to use edge/3g wireless and i never send or receive texts and pics. i would like to use wifi on it though. i wonder if the new iphones will support LEAP authentication

    I'm in the same boat... Family plan with 2 other numbers... I never send texts, and I would mainly use wifi.

    My wife and I both plan on getting the new iPhones and it looks we are both going to get the cheapest $20 data plan...

    if its just 3g i dont think its worth it. i mean if i need fast internet thats what wifi is for.

    i dont think anyone will have to camp out for it. sure there may be some lines but i dont think it'll require camping out
