|iPhone 5 by Apple|
Some Best Buy, RadioShack and Target stores say they will also carry the new iPhone. But if you want to buy an iPhone in Brooklyn on Friday, forget about Best Buy. According to the Best Buy website, NO Brooklyn stores will have them Friday.
Many people pre-ordered their phones at the carriers and Radio Shack, so stores may run out early. (Radio Shack actually offers a discount if you trade in your old iPhone 4! Plus AppleCare+ and a free 24/7 mobile support line.)
The AT&T store at 453 86th Street in Bay Ride told us via email that they open officially at 8 a.m. but the line will form before that.They said they expect a "frenzy." Other Brooklyn AT&T stores carrying the iPhone include the one at 160 Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights, 476 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn, 21 Graham Avenue, and 99 7th Avenue. (They all open at 8 a.m.) Locate.
Verizon stores carrying the iPhone 5 include the store at 146 Montague Street, 139 Flatbush Ave. (at the Atlantic Mall), 8524 5th Ave. in Bay Ridge, 2141 86th St., 1623 Kings Hwy., at BJs at 900 Remsen Ave. and more. (They all open at 8 a.m.) Locate.
If you're patient, you can always try buying online at Apple.
