Although there don't seem to be reports of any iPhone shortages, people who just want to be the first are already waiting in line in front of Apple stores in Manhattan. They have been waiting since Tuesday night.
A line began in front of the Apple Store on Tuesday, located at the shopping heavy SoHo neighborhood in New York. No doubt, another photo will show a larger line by tomorrow.
The phones will be available at 6 PM Friday.
The iPhone waiting craze is similar to students who camp out for game tickets, sometimes waiting four or five days ahead (like in Duke University basketball games).
The three in line for the iPhone (pictured above) work for the advertising agency Anomaly, which represents the non-profit organization “Keep a Child Alive”. Lindsey Lanpher and David Broad want to put their phones on sale on eBay and donate the proceeds to this foundation. iPhones are currently listed on eBay and some prices have already reached $1,400 USD.

David Clayman, who is waiting in the 5th Avenue iPhone line, is planning to do something similar, saying he will donate profits of his iPhone sale to the pro-bono organization Taproot.
AT&T said it will sell only one iPhone per customer, as the demand is expected to be large. After the initial rush, they might let customers buy more than one each.
Third parties are also already trying to capitalize on sales from people who don't like the fact the iPhone is locked to only work with AT&T; in India, phone dealers are promising to unlock iPhone for $25, no doubt only fueling demand overseas even further.
