Walmart will start selling the Verizon Apple iPhone 4 tomorrow
However, if you happen to live closer to a Walmart store, you can very well purchase the venerable smartphone there as well. Though, we’d suggest calling up ahead of time to see if they’re selling it because only select locations will be allowed to sell the iPhone 4 tomorrow. Senior vice president of Walmart’s Home Entertainment Gary Severson said , “We’re excited to bring iPhone 4 on Verizon Wireless, one the most anticipated mobile phone launches in recent history, to Walmart customers. As customers continue to embrace smart phone technology, we’ve added nearly 20 smart phone models to our assortment, including the new iPhone 4 on Verizon Wireless.”
Not surprisingly, the retail giant will be selling the 16GB model for $199 with a 2-year agreement and $299 for the higher 32GB version.

Buying some products at Walmart just seems strange to me. Windshield washer fluid, a $5 toaster, a fishing license etc seem normal, but trusting WalMart employees to get an iphone set up and working properly, or even wrung up for that matter, is kinda scary to me.

Awesome, most Verizon premium retailers can't sell the iphone even though they could help someone set them up, phonebook transfer , etc. but a wal-mart can.

I knew they sold ATT iphones, its just that the standard at Verizon is very different from ATT in my experience.

Anyone that buys an iPhone from walmart will have to suffer with thier warranty. If you want professional setup and having it set up correctly go to your location VZW store.

What are the chances that Walmart sells the Verizon iPhone 4 for a more reasonable price considering the hardware is 8 months old? They're pricing things like this is a fresh launch when all they did is retrofit the old AT&T unit. Hell, considering their policy on issuing refurbs for warranty exchanges and such, how do we know they're not reworking several months worth of returns to AT&T?
