Apple and Verizon stores in-stock numbers?
Anyone know how many ip4's stores usually stock? Was watching a few vids of the att ip4 launch days and thought looking at the massive lines "these stores cant possibly have enough for everyone"
Been lurking on the forums for a long time finally decided to sign up. Long time verizon customer always curious about the iphone.

He said authorized reseller, meaning like best buy and stuff. And from the AT&T launches that sounds right.
What i don't get is why not ensure the Verizon stores have ample stock, getting phones in anyones hands that wants on, vs having to ship them free to people when they run out. Some stores already have security guards so just have them at all stores to prevent break ins.

If it's anything like the iPhone on AT&T launch, Apple will have more stock than Verizon. Verizon will run out before 10-11am, Apple will run out the same day around 4-6pm. Apple stores will receive quicker replenishments than Verizon Stores. Apple Stores will carry 3-4x the inventory than Verizon Stores.
Recommendation: If you didn't pre-order online and plan on going to a store I'd go to an Apple Store (should you have one close enough).
