    I'm hitting up the ATT store, I called and they said they have a lot of them and it would sell out by noon. I talked to Radio Shack and they told me they wouldn't have any walk in buys that day unless they didnt fulfill their preorders and they did. And I know the two Apple stores by me (Columbus) will be loaded with people.

    I haven't heard much talk about anyone getting their iPhone 5 from Walmart. This store seems to get overlooked. I would try there unless history has shown in the past that they don't get much iPhone stock to begin with.

    Best place to wait is at the front of the line.

    I say Sprint store. I don't use Sprint, but I don't like many other people do either.

    I know obviously they have a ton of iPhone users, but in comparison to AT&T I think you'll have way better odds.

    Carrier stores will only have carrier models.

    I plan on getting to my nearest AT&T store at 4-4:30AM. They told me they will have some of every model.

    Learning from previous years, unless your first or second in line, I'd stay away from BB / Target / WalM/ Radioshk as they tend to get sadly small numbers. I'd stick with the big ATT and Verizon outlets and the Apple stores as they tend to get much more.
