    I'm in Manhattan and went to the 42nd St store, but they were sold out. So I ventured over to the Union Sq store and I waited for 6 hrs. Of course I never in a million years thought it would take that long (there were about 60 people ahead of me - appx 30 inside and 30 outside). BUT worth the wait!!!

    I got to my local store (S. Burlington, VT) around 7:50. I was #16 in line and waited outside for 10 minutes for them to open the door and sign us all in. They called my name around 11am, and I got my Storm activated and left around 12pm.

    Waiting in line: 10 minutes
    Waiting in general: 3 hours

    I had to work all day, but I had one on pre - order at bestbuy. Got to best buy at 9:15pm. Walked out at 9:30pm. Then the next day i found out my local walmart where a friend of mine works in connections still had the two they got in. I thought damn. . I could have saved some gas.

    I'm from IN but was in Buffalo, NY for a funeral. Showed up at Cheekawanga VZW store 0900 and was told all Storms were already promised but if a gentleman didn't show up at 1030 hrs. I could have it. 1020 I got my Storm and it took till 1130 to switch and program due to the network being overwhelmed. LOVE IT!!

    No waiting, No Mail in Rebates, and a free bluetooth headset. Best Buy = lucky me.

    Fortunately most of us at the location in Michigan stayed in our cars until 7:30 or so, then when one of us went, we all went. Stood outside for about 5 minutes until the manager came out and gave out tickets, and then back in our cars we went until 8. Actually quite a pleasant experience considering it was 18 degrees with a 7 degree windchill.

    My local store said they would open at 7am for the launch so I decided to show up at 6:30am only to find that they were already open. Apparently they opened at 6am and had already sold 10 phones by time I arrived.

    Luckily for me I didn't have to wait and walked right in and pick up one. Other than the 15 mins of the sales person trying to hustle me for some accessories I was in and out.

    None. Unless you count how long it took to exchange my Voyager and get the Storm active and working.

    I went on friday after work (about 3pm) and they were out. They only got 20 units. They said they were bringing more over from another store on saturday so if I was there by 930am I would get one. Got to store at 9am, walked right in, right to counter, they went to back and grabbed it.

    There was a guy in there I was talking to that got his on friday and he was there at 3am. I just dont have time or will to wait like that anymore for anything.
