iPhone 4 sales signal lines in Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Sales of the new iPhone 4 have already hit record numbers, but Tuesday marked the first time those who didn't pre-order could by one.  That had folks lining up early across the country and right here in Lubbock.

"Get the iPhone man; get the iPhone 4," Travis Brewer said.  Brewer was first in line at the AT&T Store at University Avenue and Mac Davis Lane Tuesday morning.

Brewer actually got there twelve hours before the doors opened, at 7:00 p.m. Monday.  "I was the only one for about an hour, but people started piling up around 10:00 p.m.," Brewer said. 

"I knew it was a big deal," Ben Twiss said.  Twiss arrived around midnight. He and several others found different ways to stay awake and entertained while waiting. "I tried to be dedicated to this line, so I got my little table out; I had the laptop out, but the battery already died," Twiss said. 

"I'm going to get one; I promise," Kayla Lizama said.  Lizama ended up toward the back of the line, even though she got to the store around 4:00 a.m.  "Were you surprised to see how many people were in line," KCBD asked.  "Yes, the first guy has been here since seven o'clock last night, so that was crazy; I couldn't do that," Lizama said. 

Just a few minutes before the store was set to open, the line had wrapped around the building.  The doors opened just before 7:00 a.m., and Brewer says his twelve hour wait was well worth it.  "Yes, I haven't taken the plastic off of it yet, but I'll play with it once I do," Brewer said.

    In a series of furious tweets from Mar-a-Lago, Trump vented about Russia, raging at the FBI for what he perceived to be a fixation on the Russia investigation at the cost of failing to deter the attack on a Florida high school.
