Would be great to hear from anyone who has any info about those lining up for iphones at any of the cities/towns around the country.

Let us know what you know.Laughing

That PR bullsh1tter on Campbell Live tonight claimed that someone was already lined up in Auckland? Can anyone confirm that anything coming from that man's mouth can be believed??

Geez man, if I had been more organised (and lived in Auckland), it would be a friggin' hilarious stunt to line up for 2.5 days to then NOT buy the iPhone at 12.01am.

That would seriously be awesome. First person in the world to...not...buy an iPhone.

As long as you had an honest reporter, that would make a brilliant worldwide headline.

It would seem like something from The Onion - in fact they might come down and cover it especially!! Money mouth

Nightline (TV3) played a clip before of a guy who is already waiting outside the Auckland store. He has a tent, a sleeping bag, but no sleeping mat. Complaining about cold Auckland streets, I think...

Sad.

And it's even sadder trying to get in touch with your account manager and receiving this:
