The Ultimate iPhone Camping Guide

Camping for stuff is hard work. Standing in line for eight+ hours just so you have the chance to buy something is hard enough without worrying about where you're going to pee or how you're going to get your next meal. That's why we've partnered up with Gridskipper, Gawker's urban travel blog, to bring to you the most comprehensive guide on how to camp out for an iPhone. If you're planning on camping out next Thursday/Friday in the NYC Soho store, the SF Downtown store, or the LA Century City store, bookmark these pages so you can make your experience slightly less painful.

Among the amenities listed are local motels, free bathrooms, good eateries within a couple blocks, and of course, free Wi-Fi. We'll update the maps leading up to launch, so you'll want to check back often. If you want an iPhone, you're going to want to be prepared.
