    Do carrier stores have the new Note 7's in stock yet?? I hate to drive to a store if they don't have them in stock! I have to drive an hour to a Verizon store...

    Call them... I drop by mine for something else they say they will sell if they have but FedEx/UPS does not want to transit it.

    Call them...
    The OP is on Verizon, so calling the local store isn't always an option (I think it reroutes you to a call center, then makes you jump through hoops to get to the store).

    Stock is likely pretty limited. My local store has been getting them but sell out quickly. I called the main customer service line the other day to ask about it, and Verizon's online and telesales were on national backorder and my replacement may take about a week when ordered that way. Not sure if that backorder is applying to store shipments, but wouldn't be surprised.

    When calling them just select the option for sales and it will route you directly to the store.

    I'm not sure about carrier stores, but my local Best Buy said they were currently getting shipments of 1 Note 7 at a time.

    Verizon should. Give them a call before heading and ask them to hold one for a little. Just explain it's an hour drive and you don't want to waste your time driving and have it get sold on you.

    If you have a store near you I would just go in and check. I'm on T-mobile and there are about 6 stores within a 15 mile radius but all of them are putting peoples names on a list and going in that order. So, if that's what Verizon is doing it's best to get your name on the list sooner than later.

    Verizon corporate wasn't able to help me to much with getting an ETA on Note 7's at my local stores. I have 2 physical stores, and 1 at bj's. i called all 3 everyday since saturday. Yesterday 1 of the stores got a few in. 5 min drive later i upgraded from my Note 5.

    Jaywalk is correct. When you call the store's (Verizon Wireless) number, just press "3" and it will transfer you directly to that store.

    Edit: Just a heads-up: Instead of calling stores, to save time, you may just search for the phone on Verizon's website and then click the option to check for availability around you.

    Each color of the N7 will show up as different inventory. So like in my local area, all corporate stores are out of black and blue, but one store has silver currently available (basically check each color, or the color you want). The online inventory isn't updated right away, though when N7's were in stock, that was one way I kept track of stores around me.

    You can also just call up Verizon's customer service, and if you have a helpful rep, just give them the zip code you're in and they can look up stores in your area with inventory (closer to real-time than Verizon's website).

    I've never personally tried calling the local store, just going off what my wife said when she tried a while back.

    I mentioned this in another thread as well that I couldn't find the option to check store availability on their site.
