    Living in a smaller town it looks like Walmart is my only option. They have one in stock. I'm gonna give it a try at 8AM? Anybody else gonna try Walmart? I guess I just stand at the electronics desk if I'm the first one. Correct?

    Do you post random thoughts from your brain all of the time?

    That's what I'm assuming, but I'd get there earlier than 8am. I'm thinking of going to mine by 7.

    So, I'm not real sure why this is considered a random thought. Just wanted to see how other Walmart people were going to try to get one. Not sure why that is considered dumb. Also, that should have said 5AM. That is when I am going to go there.

    I didn't think it was dumb, personally. My plan is also to go to Walmart. I know they're getting one and that's it. I'm hoping if I get there early enough, I should be able to get the one they have in stock. I'm also hoping that due to the ridiculously limited stock, other people will avoid Walmart which gives me more of a chance at the one they'll have. Of course, I'll know in roughly 6 hours whether or not my plan pans out.

    My local Walmart is also receiving one, but I didn't bother to ask if it was 16GB or 32GB, because I assumed it would be gone anyhow.

    You just got to know when to ignore some people on here. I doubt he even read your whole post.

    Possibly, but to me, it wouldn't hurt to get up and get there by 6, and if no one is waiting around, you could wait for it and it'd be yours. Worst case scenario, you're up early and can go home to sleep instead.

    What time?

    I was thinking of going to Walmart as well. What time will they be able to start selling the iphones? I remember when the Moto Droid first released, some walmarts were selling them at like 11pm the night before the official release.

    My initial thought was to try and get there 6:30-7ish

    They'll sell'em starting at 8am. The sales person I asked was very firm on this, so don't expect to get it before that.

    Just look on AT&T's web site. If it says you're eligible there, then Walmart can give it to you at the subsidized price.

    Thanks, Just wasn't sure if they were going to hit me with a credit deposit like att did when i first joined them back in 09 . I assume a credit deposit is only for the new customers perhaps.

    No problem. I think the deposit is only for those with new/limited credit. I had several months of established credit (I was 20 at the time) and they gave me an iPhone without a deposit. So they may or may not charge it to you.

    Did walmart only receive 16gb versions? Or did they also get 32gb?

    Some got 32GB, but most only received 16GB. You'd have to check with your local store to see what, if anything, they received.

    Agreed. My local wal mart has given me a few different answers ranging from "we have 7 total" to "we wont be receiving any for 2 to 3 weeks":confused:

    Well, I got here right after 5 and secured the first spot in line. A guy came up 15 minutes later so I am feeling good about my timing. He is still hanging around so I hope I don't have to go to the bathroom.
