Yesterday was the roll out of the new iPhone 4 at AT&T stores, and I knew that I needed to get their early so that I could get mine.
I made a few smart choices by going to the mall because most people think that the mall opens at 10:00, but on this day, AT&T opened at 7:00!
So why was this a smart choice?
1) air conditioning
2) no mosquitos
3) mall benches so that you don’t have to bring your own chair
4) no one is expected there
Due to these facts, especially #4, I got there at 5:15am and was first in line
The 3 people behind me were actually at the mall at 3:00am, but they did not check to see if that door was locked or not. So when I pulled up, the first thing I did was checked the door and it was unlocked!
Also, KATC TV3 News showed up and interviewed me for being the first in line. They decided not to air it, which is probably a good thing because I had just got out of bed and threw on some clothes. But I’m glad I got what I got with my little camera.
Then later on that day, my wife had to go to the mall to get her watch sized, and they still had some, so she got one for herself also! LUCKY, but I still had fun waiting!
