I was able to buy an iPhone 5 today at Sams Club. Black Verizon 16gb model. So yeah I'm pretty pumped! So if you are wanting an iPhone. Call around all the wireless providers. Walmart, SAMs, indirect stores, etc. the main stores most likely are sold out. Hope this info helps.
my cousin walked into a Verizon store and got an iphone 5. he lives in westchester, ny. and i thought there was a couple weeks backlog. i thought he was BS me but he sent me a picture. lucky him. I guess stores with low traffic may have them in stock.
