    Default Best Buy does not ship iphones?

    I do not understand why Best Buy and Radio Shack does not ship iphones online. This is crazy to me. You have to go to the store to pick them up. And the nearest one to me is an hour away!

    People generally go through Apple or their carriers for online phone ordering. BB just must not see the demand for it this way and probably see it fitter fit for them so just sell in store.

    This is a restriction imposed by Apple as a condition of their contract.

    I asked apple and their said they are not aware of third party shipping policies. It's just ludacris.

    Also, they know that once you are actually in the store, chances are you will buy something else. Makes sense from a business stand point

    It's an Apple thing you wouldn't understand.
