RustyBrick Does Line Waiting Too

RustyBrick on iPhone 4 Day at Apple Store Tice's CornerThis morning, several of us at RustyBrick arrived at the Apple Store at Tices Corner to pick up our pre-ordered iPhone 4 devices. I arrived at 2am, whereas most of us arrived at 4am and Matt is still waiting on the line.

I was a bit concerned that Apple didn't get my pre-order, as I documented here, but they did remember us and grant us our reserved iPhones. They did turn away a few people, as far as I know, from the pre-order line - due to the issue but we got ours.

5 of 6 of us were the first to be allowed into the store. Ronnie was the second person to walk out of the store, although he was number 11 on the line. Overall, the experience, least for us in the first batch was smooth and calm.

Here are some pictures and videos that we took from the event:

6 AM, Mabe on bench reading, is not phased by the Apple Store manager (guy in black talking to #2) not allowing someone who pre-ordered to get her iPhone. This is the pre-order line, that is now about 100 people long:

I was the unlucky 6th person, they stopped letting people right before me. But I was admitted 2 minutes later, and ended up being one of the first people to finish.

But yet, you got your phone before people they let in before you. :) How is Facetime working out for you?

Yeah, I had a bug which didn't allow me to make Facetime calls. The buttons wouldn't show. I had no Facetime toggle switch in Settings and no buttons. There are a ton of support threads. Basically, they all say do a complete Factory Restore... which is lengthy and a pain. http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2475384&tstart=75 I figured out how to do it with restoring. Instructions are here: http://www.rustybrick.com/new-iphone-4-upgrades-do-not-have-facetime.html
