    They said they would have some last year on launch, they got 0.

    And they try to force you purchase accessories with your phone

    No one can force you to purchase an accessory. They ask if you want an Otterbox case with your phone, but they certainly don't force you to.

    I talked to the manager that day and she said "you HAVE to purchase an accessory!!". I think they have an attach rate percentage they have to be at

    They will try to sell you a case, it's their job. Not force you. Radioshack will have 4S's in stock on the 14th.

    Just the thought of buying an iPhone at Radio Shack is gross.

    People still go into the Rat Shack? Mr. Tandy must be very sad to see how his stores have become.

    Sam's Club represent. When I went in today, they handed me a piece of paper. One side for Verizon, one side for AT&T. The AT&T side had about five names, and the Verizon side had one; mine.

    I sure there will be more people who will preorder there, but I'm going to go ahead and say it'll be a pretty easygoing experience Friday morning. :D
