    Got mine about 1, I needed a case for it so I went to my local Verizon store and they have all the accesories out and ready to go. The greeter looked at me funny when I asked if they had cases yet. You should of seen the look on her face when she pointed over to the iPhone rack of accesories, I showed her my VZW iPhone that I needed the case for, she couldnt believe her eyes.

    All of the other associates gathered around and were drooling over it. It was an awesome thing.....

    Same at my local store. I walk in there and there was an entire wall sectioned off for iphone accessories. Picked up a few cases from them since I get discounts. Good times.

    I went into my verizon store today as well and they had them ready to go. i needed to switch numbers and didnt feel like calling cs. I got the same reaction, they were like "can i touch it". It was totally worth waking up at 3 in the morning. ha

    Ohh, I thought Verizon would have them since they're selling the phones now. Oh well, I guess its off to Apple or I might check what cases they have sitting there.

    I told them I had some good contacts at Verizon, thought I may as well run with it...LOL.

    They told me they did not even have a real iPhone to use or look at during all of thier training on the iPhone.

    I'm not at all surprised they had accessories out already. The stores make a killing on accessories. That's why they're always trying to push them on customers.

    funny you say this because last week I called a local store to see if they did have accessories and the person answering the phone said they wouldn't have ant til launch day...went into the store the same day to check account and voila there were lots of accessories right up front!

    There is no discounts on iPhone accesories either, as I get a 25% discount due to my account status, and all iPhone accesorries do not allow for any discounts. Kind of a bummer.

    I think this varies by store. I went to buy my wife a case yesterday and the rep told me the same thing, but when he rang it up, my 25% discount was applied. It also works on line, but I wanted to get the case ASAP.

    That's a bummer , I also get a 25% discount on accessories. I'll probably just continue to buy from amazon and Five Below.

    You are correct, it depends on the accesories, for example the VZW store told me that if the price ends with a .97, my case was $29.97 there is no discount because it is set by Apple. Some items ended with a .97 and a few others did not and those items were packaged in Verizon packaging.

    I am pretty sure the discount if not off any Apple products, but the products made by other venders like Belkin, casemate, and etc. it should work.

    Store manager told me when I asked about discount, if made by apple branded no discount. Third party items your normal discount.

    I ordered my daughter's on thursday. I also ordered a case for it as well. The case came on Friday. The iphone came on Monday. She had to go to the store to have her contacts moved. She was the first person to get an iphone in that store. We're in MD.
