    Only 1 16gb. I was first to ask them to start a list. One name on list mine. Department manager was great. I have free run of the store. Easy access to food, drinks, restroom. Multiple other department managers have been very nice and supportive. It's for my grandson so he is helping do the time. It will be a long wait but we have been told the phone is ours. There are worse conditions to have to wait in and we already know the result. Best of luck to all.

    How do you have a waiting list for one phone? wouldn't it just be reserved for you?

    If you are supposedly getting the only one they receive, why would there be a long wait?

    Graet question. Walmart has a first come first served policy. We are first in line but since there is only 1 there is no line. Passing time watching movies on iPad and wandering the store, relaxing on a bench for now. FYI, my grandson saved his money for this and I failed at getting him one on the 15th so after AT&T killed our plans yesterday and all the other news we decided to try this. No regrets.

    Sounds like a fun time with your grandson. Can't they let you wait at home though and just come back at midnight? Kind of moot now but honestly, if they're going to reserve it for you why make you do the dance as well.

    Cool grand daddy, mine would only tell me how back in the good 'ol days they went out to a person's house and talked in person.
