According to BGR, Wal-Mart may be carrying the iPhone 3G starting on November 15th. Also noteworthy is that it doesn’t look like the iPhone will be sold at Radio Shack, as previously rumored. Now, I’ve never purchased a cell phone from Wal-Mart before but here’s to hoping the activation process will be relatively hassle free, as I don’t remember ever seeing anybody in the electronics departments of any of the Wal-Mart stores I’ve been in.
I’ve seen a counter, I’ve seen locked glass cases holding cameras and video games, and I’ve seen a cash register, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen an actual person. It might be a good idea to cross-train the dependable lady behind the jewelry counter in the art of cell phone activations, because she’s almost always around.
