"Sometimes I have had people spending the night outside right about now," Nasuta said about 5:30 p.m. Thursday. "When we do sell out of phones, which I pretty much guarantee that will happen, we will do pre-orders."
Nasuta said he will go out to buy water bottles and granola bars for the iPhone enthusiasts to try to make them comfortable. He will also give out coupons so everyone will know if they will actually be getting a phone that day.
Like most other retailers nationwide, the Bel Air store will open at 8 a.m. for the release, two hours earlier than normal.
"Usually in the past years, everybody is really excited because they are getting their new toy and I pretty much tell everybody in the morning how many phones we have," he said.
He was "sort of" concerned, however, because he heard Apple already sold all of its pre-orders in the first hour.
Unlike other phones, for the iPhone, "it's always a bigger release," Musser said. "I think it's going to be a little bigger rush than the other [releases] because it's 4G LTE. That's just significantly quicker."
LTE, or long-term evolution, is a standard for increasing the capacity and speed of wireless data networks.
According to Apple's website, the iPhone 5 will have an increased display screen, faster Internet speed, longer battery life and a more vibrant screen.
"Every phone that's out there, the iPhone has just a little bit better," Charlie Peacher, a sales associate at the Verizon store, explained.
