    Like a radio shack or something? I gambled on a Target reservation but they didn't get any in. Are all Apple stores sold out? Just curious. Thanks!

    Wouldn't hurt to call and ask. You might have a chance at the 32GB or 64GB models right now.

    Best Buy
    Radio Shack
    WalMart
    AT&T, Verizon or T-Mobile stores.

    I would call around and see who has stock.

    Call around for sure. Depends on your area of course; my local AT&T store is in a kinda ghetto area and I wasn't surprised to find out they had a bunch of 64GB 5S in stock at 4pm. They only had Space Gray though; according to the store manager "no AT&T store" got white or gold in stock.

    I'm in California (Hemet), at 11am walmart and at&t store both had the space gray color still in stock. Walmart had zero customers and at&t had one person in there. I went in to check on the gold color, of course they didn't get any. I had already placed an order on att.com at 12:03am but thought if I found them instore I would just cancel the order. When I placed my order att placed a 1 dollar charge on my account, but at 11:15am the bank had already pulled the money out for both phones. I thought I would not be charged till it shipped? (My order said 7 to 28 days for shipping)

    Will only sell you the phone if you buy accessories? Is that even legal?

    Apple store in Austin, TX (The Domain) had plenty of stock at 3:30pm CST, only in Space Gray. I was in and out with my 64GB within 30m. I'd still check an Apple store if you have one nearby.

    Yes, it is legal. Radio Shack has been doing it since they started selling iPhones.

    Perhaps Costco has some iPhone 5s's if there's a Costco in your area.

    Buy it with accessories and return the accessories later.

    Costco doesn't sell Apple stuff anymore.

    BestBuy mobile worked. Just went and purchased a 32 gb white and silver for AT&T somehow. Had around 100 still sitting there and the employees were very knowledgeable and helpful. Hope you can get the one you want!

    Also, RadioShack has 16 gb models of space gray.

    Just walked into my local AT&T store (East Bay Area, California) and bought a 64 Gb Space Grey iPhone 5s. When I left they still had 5 more. No other sizes or colors though.
