Apple Store Stock

I have read a few articles about supply catching up with demand. So i was wondering if this is actually true. I am hoping to walk into an Apple store wednesday and just purchase a 16gb and a 64gb. How many of you have had success with this since the supply catching up with demand articles started coming out a few days ago?

5. Walk in and get the phones.

Or go to att.com verizon.com sprint.com

I second what he said. Got another iphone 5 yesterday doing this method. It took me less than 5 minutes.

Cell phones do still make calls you know. Just give them a call they should tell you

I don't think you can see stock from specific Verizon or AT&T stores online. If you can, please link to where on websites that info is available.

I am in Miami. I have tried both apple stores in the area multiple times but that was before shipping time was decreased. I will try to go to the apple store in the morning before it opens and wait. Hopefully they have two available. I want my 64gb :-). I'll post an update tomorrow on if I get them or not.

I have heard that I can no longer buy an ATT device only. Does anyone know if this is true? i really do not want to make a trip if i can't buy the device without having ATT and i dont want to be on the phone for an hour waiting like last time i called them.

Here is my update! I walked in the apple store. They didn't have any black ones or 64gb so I ended up getting a white 32gb. I was able to purchase 2 iPhones with no issue "device only". You do not have to restore with iTunes the AT&T iPhones are unlocked out of the box! I just went to a T-mobile store to get my nano sim and it worked perfectly. The genius told me that I have 30 days if I decide I want a black one but I think I will keep the white to avoid chipping issues. The battery is amazing on the thing!
