Best Buy, RadioShack and Sam’s Club To Carry New iPhone

If you didn’t already pre-order the iPhone 4S and don’t want to camp outside an Apple Store on Friday, there are some other options.

All Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores will be carrying the AT&T, Verizon and Sprint iPhone models on October 14. You can also buy the iPhone 4S at RadioShack or Sam’s Club. You will need a Sam’s Club membership and should upgrade your existing iPhone to iOS 5 if you plan to replace it. You should also bring along the Social Security number of the primary account holder, photo ID, and all your passwords (carrier and Apple) to any iPhone retailer if you plan on buying a new device.

Sam’s Club iPhone 4S pre-orders begin on Tuesday and it will be available on a first-come, first-served basis on October 14. The iPhone 4S is $199.99 for the 16GB model, $299.99 for the 32GB model and $399.99 for the 64GB model. All prices require a new or upgraded contract.

UPDATE: Not all Sam’s Club locations will be carrying the iPhone. Visit the Sam’s Club website to find a location near you.
