Similarly to Best Buy, hopefully you’ve pre-ordered. If so, some stores will be opening at 8 a.m. for you to pick it up. If not you’ll want to be the first one in line as there is only a small quantity for customers that did not pre-order. Phones will be sold for all 3 supported carriers.
The iPhone 4S will be sold in the store’s mobile section, which opens at 11 a.m. in most locations. Pre-orders will be handled first and if any devices are left, they will be up for sale to any customer. Target will be selling phones for all 3 carriers.
Sam’s will be fulfilling their pre-orders before any other customers get a chance. Keep in mind if you are not a Sam’s Club Member that you will need to purchase a membership to even get through the doors.
This is your last chance. Only available in select stores, and on AT&T. Call your local Wal-Mart, or run down there right now to see if you can pick up this legendary device today.
