    FYI in case you're planning on going to WalMart in the morning. I visited my local WalMart today and was told they only had one in stock and they would be allowed to sell it starting at 8:01 AM EST.

    Yeah, that's what they told me at my local Walmart as well. It seems like they're all getting between 1-5 iPhones. Sucks, but it's better than the 0 that a lot of Radioshacks are getting.

    I live in Orange County, and pretty much everyone but Apple is getting shafted.

    Mid-Michigan or elsewhere? The one I am referring to is a large Walmart, by far the biggest one in a 20 mile radius. They're only getting 1, though I've heard of others getting 0.

    @aggie: I'd call your local RS and make sure, but I do know I've seen a lot of posts on here stating that they will be getting 0. That's the case at all stores in my area.

    I called my closest WalMart this morning and indeed, just one iPhone in stock. The other two in the area either didn't answer in electronics or the guy had to go ask and never came back.

    So do you think anyone's even going to bother "camping" out when only one iPhone is available?

    That sucks. :( There is an Apple store around there, correct? If you're looking to get one, probably camping out at an Apple store is the best bet. I'd do so if an Apple store were closer to me.

    Apple store in Grand Rapids 40 miles away. No, Not camping... pre ordered at ATt #4.Went in the next day because of no confirm email. The staff was manually putting them in. I asked where mine was at, and I was 4 from the bottom...they started at the top of the pile instead of inverting pile according to place in line. Canceled pre order and went to BB. Now my wife f=gets her 16, and I wait... was furious, now I am over it.To bad I sold both 3gs phones on monday, using a gay ass GO phone.

    The Walmart's in my city are getting close to ten iPhone 4's. All the more reason to arrive before 5AM.

    I'm in the same position. :( I sold my iPhone 3G last week and promised to ship it on the 24th, since I expected to be able to get an iPhone 4 by some method on the 24th. I was also pretty angry that I'm stuck using an additional line and a Samsung Magnet in the meantime, but I'm going to at least make an effort to get one tomorrow because I don't want to wait until Tuesday for when AT&T puts'em on sale to the general public. If I don't get one then, I'll probably just put up with the Magnet for a couple weeks and order through Apple.

    My wal-mart is getting 6 iP4 16GB phones. i was surprised because my town isn't all too big (50,000) people. i might try my luck there, but up to this point, I am just considering ordering from Apple and waiting until july 14.

    My local wal-mart got a total of 7. I was surprised as well considering the population is less than 30,000.
