There will be lines for the iPhone 5. Don't listen to the people suggesting otherwise. There were lines for the freaking iPad2 for a couple weeks in many places...

You really need to be in line the day before to get it. There will be hundreds of people in line.

If you want one bad enough usually the day after launch somebody who was in line will flip the phone on Craigslist or Ebay for $1200 or so.

i just really hope it comes to Sprint this time.

I really hate Verizon and At&t plans. They are overpriced and under-serviced in my opinion.

You might not like the plans but those are really the only networks that can half way handle with the massive amounts of traffic that iPhones put on a network.

I am waiting for the IPhone 10. I had a the first generation IPhone, the IPhone 4 and the IPad. I was going to get a Mac, but I decided on another Dell PC, not ready to switch to all Apple products yet. I am all Apple out.

You DO NOT need to stand in line at a store to get one and I can think of much better things to do with my time.
Agreed!

I'm really in no hurry, heck I just now got my 4G.
