    Best Buy vs Apple Store
    What's the difference when buying an iPhone 4 at Best Buy? Are we missing out on anything compared to the apple store?

    Hopefully more knowledgeable employees at the Apple Store vs. Best Buy.

    Right on that's what I figured. My best buy just called me and let me know my iPhone came in. I just wanted to make sure there's nothing bad about purchasing it some other than the apple store.

    Besides the lousy the service from a teenager, nothing. At least at the Apple store the people there know what there talking about.

    sorry don't mean to flame but can't stand bestbuy I guess that's why I don't shop there.

    Well...in one way purchasing electronics at Best Buy can be better than the Apple Store...since at Best Buy you can purchase their "Black Tie" warranty. Which depending on the level of warranty you purchase....can cover you against accidental damage & dead batteries...which the Apple Warranty does not cover (the Apple warranty covers defective batteries, but not dead or worn out batteries due to regular use).
