    I can't seem to get a clear answer about when a 24 hour Walmart would launch the iPhone. Midnight? 8am? It seems like the employees aren't particularly well informed either. Anyone have any experience with this?

    Find a Store Manager or Assistant that oversees the Electronics area in the WallyWorld in question, and you might get a right answer...

    I work for a carrier and I've read a notice saying no iPhone 5 sale was allowed prior to 8AM on friday morning. I would guess this is because no activation will be tolerated on Apple server before that - and that any store that would sell it before said hour could be in a heap of s***.

    It'll be 0800 on the 21st. That's the way the Walmart that I work at is doing it.

    I can confirm that's how WalMart does it... launches of new products like phones, tables, etc usually starts at 0800 on launch day. The only exception that I know of was the iPad2 which launched at 5:00 pm local time.
