    My roommate works for Walmart and if you want the iphone4 I would reccomend staying away! Here's why: He works in a decently large store and they are getting 1 (!) black 16 gb. The largest volume stores are getting at most 5 phones. Some of the biggest stores are getting 25-30 8gb 3gs iPhones but only a couple of 4's. They have a tool where you type in a store number to see how many someones getting so he put in the biggest stores in CA, NY and TX and the MOST anyone was getting was 5. On top of that Walmart WILL NOT stock the 32gb model at all! So if you want a 4, there are probably better places to go.

    I wasn't really going to try Wal-Mart anyway, but thanks for sharing what you heard. I had heard they weren't stocking 32GB, so that clinched it for me.

    What?? What's the point of even selling it if you're going to have such a low quantity?

    Nope.

    I don't know if that's sound logic or not. They've sold 32gb versions before. ;)

    I wouldn't buy an iPhone from Walmart if you paid me to. I want a 32gb. I've had 2 iPhones (2g and 3gs) and both came straight from Apple. Walmart shouldn't even be selling them since most of the employees are too uneducated to even use one!

    Let me clarify

    Ok, let me clarify the uneducated part of my post. What I said came out wrong. By uneducated is that Walmart management does not train their associates on the ins and outs of activation, usage and troubleshooting. They are uneducted on the iPhone not in life. Sorry if that came out wrong.
