This isn't a line of mostly men waiting to see the newest Twilight movie -- go to L.A. Live for that urban camping experience -- this is a line for a holiday, of sorts: the release of the iPhone 4.

"Line at The Grove for those with iPhone RESERVATIONS is hundreds long," tweeted notdaniel. "Should've camped. Probably going to leave."

davidshead tweeted "The Apple Store Grove line has not moved in like half an hour. We've already been given muffins, coffee and water. Perhaps fruit next?"

Lines are likely to be seen at Apple stores across the city.
