In line for an iPhone 4? Share your pics, stories

We'll be covering the iPhone 4 launch from retail outlets on both U.S. coasts, but we can't be everywhere. That's where you come in, we hope.

We'll be on the scene on both sides of the U.S. covering the iPhone 4 launch at various retail outlets, but we can't be everywhere. That's where you come in. Will you be out braving the crowds (or maybe lack thereof in your neck of the woods) to get a shiny new iPhone? If so, we want to see any line photos and hear any stories (both good and bad) about your launch day adventure that you think CNET readers would enjoy.

Send us your photos, anecdotes, or news tidbits from wherever you are to ReaderSubmissions@cbs.com, and we'll put the good stuff here. We'll also be keeping an eye on your comments and filtering the best ones to the top. In the meantime, bookmark this page and come back to it on Thursday morning for updates throughout the day.

Update at 1:56 p.m. on June 24: Reader Paul DeCesare sends in a photo he took with his new iPhone 4 (received on Wednesday) of the line formed at the Apple store in Scottsdale, Az. The folks there got umbrellas too, but not for the same reason Chicago customers did.
