"Up until yesterday, mobile phone customers in vast parts of Montana, Wyoming, North and South Dakota, and Nebraska had no way to get an iPhone. Why? There simply wasn't any AT&T coverage in these areas, so the customers -- who were mostly on Verizon -- had no access to the popular smartphone."
This is really where the "lines" were, in areas that previously had no AT&T coverage so had to make do with those "other" smartphones. Even though weather played a part in keeping some home, and I'm sure some pre-ordered, they still had some diehards lining up to get their hands on one of the iPhone 4s.
