    I have done that for certain Black Friday deals.. only when i can save like 400+ on items. But not for a phone. I will however get there a few minutes early.

    I'd love to view the stats on their traffic/bandwidth/server load.. It must be off the chart! Good idea for a widget :)

    I know there will be an article on this tomorrow about how the site was down for hours in the morning. Everything seems to be working now for me, so I would imagine the influx of people has tapered off.

    I know someone else will be there at 8 when I get htere... cause a buddy is coming too. Other than that I dont expect huge lines. Like I've said, this isn't black friday and this isn't a release for the masses like XBOX or Wii

    I'm leaving in a few minutes for a 7:00 opening. 15 minute drive, BIG cup of coffee from WAWA en route!

    I am going to ask at the store if they can change my online order to Saturday delivery.

    Or just ask if they can give you the phone when you get to the store for the online price since you already paid for it ;)

    Now there's an idea! But as sticky as VZ is about "the rules", they probably won't. I don't mind waiting until tomorrow, but Monday is TOO LONG!

    why oh, why do they have to release it on a friday?? they should've accepted online orders by thursday so people who purchased online can get their hands on it by friday afternoon..
