    So I'm on the road for business in a semi small town.

    Missed the pre order at best buy, apple, AT&T, and anywhere else that option exists. Anyway, would still like to get my hands on a new iphone so I call radio shack, and the guy says they have a "very limited supply" but will sell them tomorrow.

    I just called before they closed and the guy said the same same thing, but added that even though they've had no presale and do not hold or accept pre orders that the "very limited supply" they have is all spoken for.

    I asked they guy what that meant, and he beat around the bush and basically told me not to waste my time showing up there in the am.

    So i hung up but then got a bit pissed. Sounds like the employees are gonna grab the phones.
    Am half tempted to just show up

    What you guys think?

    Be there first thing in the morning. Before anyone else can show up. Raise total hell with them if they act like their supply is spoken for even with no pre-order option and have a video camera running at the same time. You'll end up with a phone for sure.

    I agree- seems like the employees have first dibbs. U should show up early to see what's going on there.

    Yeah I think i will.

    I'm torn because there's a best buy the other direction so it's one or the other. I'm guessing not many people will be at the shack though.

    I'll make the call in the am. Sounds like they're try to scam though.

    Pisses me off

    That's really shady. I bet they are giving them to their family and friends.

    Remember that for the 1st iPhone release, the Apple employees weren't allowed to have iPhones for a period of time? Maybe this is why.
