same here..   after gently asking the dude to check in the back he came back, said he couldn't find em right, then this fine dime piece walks by and turns out she's the phone lady, i think the non-wal-mart flavor kind. 

 

Anyways she proceeds to tell us that the items have been marked for RECALL and have been sent back to the supplier/vendor.  At my gentle p3rsistence she firmly tells me that even if they had them right now on hand, they cannot sell em due to the recall. 

Somethjing about the system not allowing it...

 

Gotta say . man, in this retail hustle, you win some and ya LOSE some..

I think this was my greatest loss.. 

I done drove 40mins each way on the chance of gettin this...

I guess I got greedy, i've always known better than to trust the 2 in stock... 

 

 

anyways best of luck to anyone that gets any of these!!

Not surprised. It's nearly an obsolete model.

As an employee at an Apple Authorized Service Provider, I can tell you that Apple has only (officially) declared the original iPhone and the iPhone 3G to be “obsolete” models: all other models are marked as “supported” by the company and all AASPs. That being said, the current iOS and most of its apps are pretty demanding resource-wise, and anything under a 6 will run fairly slowly. The 6s and higher run very well: I know firsthand as I use a 6 and my wife has a 6s Plus.

Well, I had to go to Walmart anyway tonight. Gonna go to the one that's slightly further away that says this is Limited Stock. Won't be the only reason for going there, so it won't be as depressing when I inevitably strike out

The iPhone 6 is next on the chopping block and will be excluded from future iOS updates (starting with the June announcements).

I would not want to be a retailer selling a phone where in several months from now, while still within its warranty, it will officially be a dead product.

Dead links.


Would you be able to post the one out of 10,000 stores that has the PS Classic at that price, or at least the state?

Thank you. I travel quite frequently and whenever posts I’m interested pop up, I search a vast grid of zip codes over numerous states. I can honestly say I’m batting a 0 on any of the “Uber” deals you’ve posted, and I’m not speaking locally, yet hundreds of stores.

Looks to be $59 in Minneapolis area for Playstation Classic. Funny that Walmart.com has it back to $100 now, 3rd party sellers as low as $50.

 

$36 at Target with PM + Cartwheel is the best deal I've seen so far.

Wow, called and they said they had 2 iphone 6 in stock, went to store and they said they cannot sell them. Called customer support and after telling what happened they said to hold twice, the third guy tried telling me nothing is wrong with their system it is an issolated incident but they get hundreds of calls like this per day, there is no way They can track what they can and cannot sell. Wtf. He then said I should have called before to the store which I explained I did, let them know who I talked to and asked for corporate number so I can call and let them know they have a huge problem in their process to which he replied by hanging up on me. Looks like Im just going to start throwing steaks behind the paper towels every time I go to walmart, will make me feel better

That sounds like an annoying ordeal. On the bright side, you're saving yourself from a headache. That phone will not be fully functioning later this year. There's a reason why it isn't being sold.

I’m actually very interested in what Apple is going to do in the near future about their 13” Mid-2012 MacBook Pro model: they were selling it until Q4 of 2016, so it should technically be supported until at least 2021, but it’s such an outdated model by today’s standards that I fully expect them to start replacing them with newer models instead of fixing them.

I have an IPhone 5s from Straight Talk (the Wal-Mart cell phone provider) and got a notice a week or so back that they're changing networks that won't be supporting the 5s by around the end of the year.  I can't imagine the 6 is much further off.

Yep. The 5s was officially made obsolete a few months ago.

The last part is the issue. Once an iOS is deemed obsolete, many apps will cease to run when the App Store requires a minimum update to run said apps.
