    Has anyone had any luck just walking in to a store and finding the phone in stock recently? I've got to imagine we're getting close to this finally be a little more likely.

    Lack of supply.
    Foxconn factory strikes.
    Hysterical demand.
    Holiday season approaches.

    I wouldn't expect such until mid January.

    Much to my surprise, yes, at a Target in Dallas. Saturday morning right at opening, 10:00. Got a black 16GB on AT&T

    5th Ave Apple store had them in stock for walk-ins last Friday, but only with contracts.

    The Apple store near me had AT&T walk in phones for like a week. I use Verizon tho, so I had to order online.
