So i've tried calling some of the Walmarts around me and they either have no idea what I'm talking about or claim they have not received shipment yet. Anyone else in the SoCal Long Beach area having similar results? You find any stores that confirmed they have them in stock now?

Try going anyways. The people at my walmart were pretty clueless about the iPads. They did have them though.

Nor cal here, the only 24 hours stores in my area claim they either don't have them or are not selling them until 8am.

I live in the same area as you and honestly, all our local walmarts suck and the employees are clueless. I advise going yourself to check it out.

Are all Walmarts open 24 hours? When I look online it says all the Walmarts close at 10PM, even the Supercenters.

Yeah. I just don't want to roll up there and the stores are all dark and closed up and I have no idea if they're going to open up or what.

I'm trying to call them now and none of them are picking up the phone. One of the stores labeled '24 hours' just told me they were closing soon. :confused:

I live in Anaheim and there's a 24 hour Wal-Mart right off the 5 Freeway off of Euclid. I may be heading there in a bit to check if they have it.

There are quite a few 24 Hour Wal-Marts in SoCal...it all depends on how far you want to drive to get one :D

Not answering the phone. None of the walmarts up here are picking up. Hmm
I'd say just walk in and see if they have it and if they don't, if you have a Sams Club membership just walk to Sams club since they'll have them at 7 am. As a heads up though that Sams Club location will only have the 64gb in Black so ill be going to a different one ;) No Sams Clubs are carrying the 32gb :/

I think Santa Ana and Anaheim are 24 hour.

The one in either Westminster (or is it Garden Grove? Well...somewhere near there) MIGHT be 24 hour...I would lean more toward not 24 hour.

I'm in Burbank, and unfortunately we don't have any 24hr stores around here either. I'm still debating where to go to get it...:apple:

What do you think about the Targets, Best Buys, and Radio Shacks etc around here? I never even bothered to show up on a launch day, but didn't preorder this time around.

Hoping to go in the morning to get one...

My initial plan was to check out best buy tomorrow around 6-7 am. Will probably try around 8 to see if i can snag a white one. At least target is next door lol.

I was probably going to do the same thing. Looking for the 32gig Black WiFi. I'm about about to hop in the car and drive out there; scope it out. :cool:
