    I talk to the manager of my local WalMart today and he said they would be selling the the new iPhone 3G S on the 19th. He said they would be selling the 16GB for sure but didn't know about the 32gb.

    So if you don't live close to an Apple or AT&T store you might check out Wally World.

    Will Wal-mart have a better return policy? ;)

    That may be highly unlikely, but I'd expect to find Wal-mart people easier to talk to especially those who are not too tech savvy, and perhaps, and PERHAPS we will have a better luck talking someone into something... like waving the activation fee. Well, just a thought. :D

    Oh, if Wal-mart can sell iPhones, why can't Costco sell iPhones. Maybe it's another exclusive deal with Wal-mart and we can't have both.

    Yes, it's just my wish, but I'd love to buy my iPhone from Costco because they have the best deals for non-iPhone AT&T phones. Activation fee? All waived for Costco members.

    I wish I had a walmart near me. Not for the iphone, but for everyday CHEAP stuff. I can walk to an apple store and an at&t store though...maybe they should start selling wholesale groceries?

    Really. If Walmart and Sam's Club have the iPhone, it's a slim chance that another discount warehouse would have it too. Bad news for me. :p

    That is done by the state not the store.

    I know people yesterday were reporting paying $50 tax on a $200 phone.

    I just ordered from and paid $16 on the $200 purchase. Maybe it was a glitch that has been fixed.

    I don't know of any state that has a 25%+ sales tax!

    Unlikely, our cell dept closes at 9pm even though we are open 24/7(I work at Walmart). It's not even possible to write a contract after 9.

    Probably because the phone is taxed at its retail price and not the subsidized price.

    Sam's Club will not be able to waive any fees associated with the purchase of the iPhone, we aren't given a whole lot of leeway on the activation process, and it is all automated. As far as I know, an online sale like that would use the highest tax in the area until the billing info is confirmed, and the appropriate tax can be billed, that's how a lot of my online purchases have been.

    If you don't live in CA, RI, or MA you will be taxed "normally". For us in one of those 3 states, we have to pay tax on the unsubsidized price.
