    Yes they carry both 16 & 32. I know a Walmart store manager, he said they received 50 of each.

    I'd have gladly bought my phone from the slow lady with a femi-mullet that usually works in the shoe department than stand in that line again.

    I timed my apple visit well here in San Antonio. Went in about 10:30 am, no real line but store was crowded. A rep walked up to me and asked if I had credit approval or an established line already, answered yes, walked out with my phone at 11:30. Admit very happy after the fiasco of pre-order hell day of last week.

    Screw Walmart I only buy from the Apple store so Apple gets all the money. I want to help make Apple the biggest most powerful corporation in the world. Why should other retailers like Walmart get a cut? let them sell trashy Android phones to trashy Walmart shoppers. Remember Walmart is a competitor to itunes lets not help the competition.

    Is Walmart selling any cases? Not bumpers, normal cases.

    Lol, oh no doubt. I do believe every Wal-Mart in America is employed by the same exact people, who are all caught in some weird dimensional time warp thingy. :D

    Just called about 5 walmarts that are within a 20 mile radius of me. None of them have one, and the one that's actually here in Lynchburg doesn't even sell AT&T. Awesome.

    Called Radio Shack, neither of them here will be carrying iPhone 4. They haven't gotten in any at all.

    No Apple store within 2.5 hours.

    ****. Looks like I'll be camping out Monday night as I planned.
