    WTF do you do for a living?!?!? You must be ballin' rich to afford an iPhone.

    If you know how to spend your money, you can have a lot for very little... I was able to pay all my utilities, my mortgage, and support a wife and kid on a Wal-Mart salary. I have since moved on to a job with better hours and benefits, but Wal-Mart's salary isn't that bad... at least for managers

    This has to be the second dumbest post I've read on these forums.


    EDIT: I think I'm just in a bad mood today.

    Do you get the Apple Care Warranty from buying it at Wal-Mart or ATT?
    Sorry you're right, don't know why I said ATT.

    Thats kind of rude...!!! What makes you think that all people at walmart are broke *** people who dont make much...Half the customers I have that work at walmart have a spouse who makes more than enough for the family and just work there to not be stuck at home...so to say that they cant afford an iPhone is just wrong...

    Plus my buddy is a GM at walmart and he makes a good penny without even having a frickin degree...like almost 80K...
    I think he can afford one...!!!

    Of course it's about selling iPhones. Apple is a publicly held company that has to show profits and make shareholders happy. Apple could care less if you're cool or not.

    Which, just in case you didn't know, you're not.
    completely agree with you on this..!!!

    grow up.

    noone thinks you are elite.

    stop acting like it.
    I cant agree with this quote even more...

    Yes managers, not the middle aged men or women that are living paycheck to paycheck. Also I'm basically basing the comment off of what I've seen from Wal Mart and what I've heard. Jeez people can be uptight.

    like I said not every person working is middle aged and living paycheck to paycheck...
    I work in corporate America with huge University and they pay us over inflated salaries and trust me I have co-workers that live paycheck to paycheck...
    Dont be that guy..!!!

    this is all i know right now, the iphone will be sold without a contract 8gb will be $397, and the 16gb will be $497. some stores have signs out saying they will cost $500 for the 8gb one. and to tell if your store will be in the pilot, you need to see if you have access to POS.com or POS.com2

    will post more info as i find out more.

    How has anyone not commented on this yet:

    Note says phones must be purchased by employees, but note also says each store MUST sell 5 phones.
    ...
    What if 5 employees at each store don't want a damn $300 phone and $1200 of charges a year? Does the Apple mafia show up and change your mind?

    you want me to post a picture, and they got the info wrong. its $397, which you still have to sign a 2 year contract. the $397 is 197 for the iphone and you have to pay the 175 disconnection fee.

    And i will see if i can find a way to print and then scan the the iphone info to post...you may have to wait til tuesday when i can use a scanner.

    and here is the website we use to do the iphone.

    but it checks your ip to make sure your on the walmart network
