What do you do if you're itching to get a new Verizon iPhone, but you aren't near an Apple store, you don't want to order online from Apple, and you don't want to make the trip to your local Verizon store? Starting February 10th, you'll be able to take a stroll to your neighborhood Walmart and pick up the phone, along with some potato chips and a new pair of jeggings.
