    Hey guys I'm wondering, Is it possible to buy a iPhone 5S from a Verizon Retail store for full price on Friday? Anyone who has purchased a iPhone from Verizon at full retail price at one of the Verizon Stores (ex $649+Tax) please advise thanks

    Customer care says yes, however its at the discretion of the store (and based on inventory on hand) as to whether they will allow it or not. I have four stores here, and all of them have told me they don't know, since they have no idea how many phones they're going to get -- so it's pretty much a guess at this point.

    Strange...I put a reserve on 5S at my local Radioshack...to my surprise I was the first one...and since the employee didn't know what capacity and color they would get, I put on reserve without any money or purchase [Employee just took my name and number]:

    1st Choice: 64GB Gray or Gold - Verizon or AT&T
    2nd Choice: Gray or Gold 32GB Verizon or AT&T

    he just took note of choices and said will let me know first thing friday morning and said I can purchase at full price...one thing I did notice was on Bestbuy.com is that the price was $50 higher ex $899 vs $849 at Apple Store to purchase full....Is Bestbuy going to be banking on people who buy unsubsidized iPhones from them?

    I've seen best buy charge $200-$300 more then retail. They are scammers. Beware!!
