    Picked mine up on early Friday morning from Walmart. I had checked their desktop site and got nothing. Tried their mobile site and interestingly a store nearby had "limited quantity".

    Drove to the store, didn't see them on the racks, so I asked an associate. He was trying to figure out what phone it was because someone else had a pick up online order. He was confused because he hadn't heard of it and this location just recently got the 635.

    He ended up emptying the whole cabinet when he found 3. I grabbed mine, but kind of wish I would've grabbed a second now to get some "mad profit".

    Anyone lucky enough to nab a 640 at any Walmart in Los Angeles area?? Went to 3 different Walmarts near me and no sign of its existence at all.. No price sign, no placeholders, and none of the employees know about it. Too bad it's sold out online.
    Went to all three stores in SCV and they were sold out....the phone sales guy was saying that apparently they are quite popular:-)

    I don't live in LA but to get my own, I did drive for about 40 minutes myself. If you have time and can call ahead before going, you should do it! I have no regrets doing so and I did get the only one that was available too.

    I went to my local T-mobile store. They had the Android display and the iPhone display and not a single mention of anything Windows Phone in site. It was demoralizing, but not surprising. I'll try again in a few months.

    Same with Verizon and WP phones. They don't sell enough to justify giving them any floor space. BlackBerry and Windows Phone have become "online order only" devices. They claim you can pick up the next day, but there are none in the stores themselves.

    This bs is worse than an iphone launch. I was blaming AT&T for taking forever but it's obviously Microsoft. Prob when they announced it in early march it was just at the concept stage.plus the U.S. Seems to be low low priority. No other company annoumces a phone then takes 4 months to bring it to market.

    I still blame the carriers. This phone was released overseas and as an unlocked version a while back.

    On a side note. I was able to pick up four of these phones from two different Walmart stores. My family members are so lucky to have me.

    Yep. Been available In Australia for some time now. I will grab one for my wife as she just smashed her screen on her current WP. $199.00 I might grab one for myself.

    I picked up a 640 about 5 days after launch at a WalMart in Colorado Springs. Their inventory tracker doesn't seem to be very accurate, as the store showed out of stock online, but a phone call to their electronics section got me their last one from the case.

    In Florida, the tracker said that the local stores within 50 are all sold out. Called the local store and they had one. Well now they have zero and I have one LOL

    Now that Walmart's entire stock of 25 Lumia 640's were sold nationwide can this now be considered to be in high demand? :P

    It's just an item on the shelf for sale.

    WalMart could care less just like any big box retailer.

    I think TMobile or Microsoft should do a better job making these boxes easier to differentiate. The Walmart I went to had a 435 in front of and covering the 640's. This might have been the reason I was able to grab a couple 640's.

    My local Wal-Mart had about a dozen tags hanging on the shelf, but only one actual phone. Now they have none. ( :
