I'm probably out of luck still finding the iPhone in a store today right? My pre-order has been processing for over 5 days now and I'm getting quite irritated. Thought about hitting up a few stores but at 12pm I'm probable out of luck.

I think you'd be wasting your time walking around now.

You won't know unless you try.

I went to the Best Buy near my work at 8am, no line up, walked out with a black 64gb.

I also walked out with a REALLY big smile on my face.

May be the best strategy is to call your local Apple store and see how many iphone of your choice is still in stock and you can make a gauge of whether it is worthwhile to make the trip. I think it is a hit and miss situation depending on the inventory and the demand of the particular model that you like. Don't give up yet if you really want it today..

If you have time, go ahead and wander around local stores. I suspect you're out of luck, but you never know. I don't know that I would call. Apple's not going to tell you how many they have left, and no one will hold one for you. Would suck to call, they say they have in stock, then, you get there and they're sold out...

I've heard rumors of Best Buy's having no waits today.

While driving to have a late breakfast with my wife, we passed by a Best Buy store and noticed that the parking lot wasn't full nor were there any lines on the outside. I was surprised, to say the least.

Anyone know how often these stores get shipments? Maybe I can try tomorrow Sunday or Monday even. At this rate I won't get the one I ordered on apple.com until freaking Christmas!

I got in line at the Marlton, NJ store @12:30 EDT and walked out 45 minutes later with the iPHONE 5 of my choice.

They had our local apple store on the news and the line was nuts so I doubt they have any in stock. Tried to call but the computer voice said there were 10 people ahead of me so I said screw it.

I walked in an AT&T store at 9am just because I was driving by and saw no line. No line inside either. Walked right up and payed. White 16gb. They said they had about 100 people in line when it opened and had 44 employees so the line was gone in under 30 minutes. Then I hit up Best Buy for a case and they still had plenty of iPhones left around noon. No line there either. Although, other local AT&T stores and Best Buy locations were swamped. I guess I live in a nifty part of town.

Or else Best Buy's in worse condition than has been advertised. No one goes there, even when they have iPhone 5's... :)
