The Connect Store at Polo Park has a waiting list (or at least they did yesterday). You write down your name and number and they will hold a phone for you for one day when they get them in.
It looked like they were getting 50 white 16GB, and 150 black 16GB. I'm not sure about black 32GB, but he said they were already out of white 32GB.
Good luck!

Will the iPhone 5 be able to connect to MTS's LTE network?

Yes - except they are having issues with it right now (as are a few other carriers).

@mac2crack, I'm not sure, but Plan 1 looks the same as Talk & Surf 1GB Plan and Plan 2 looks the same as Talk & Surf Unlimited Plan. If I'm correct then Plan 1 would include "Pick 5", but you should double-check with MTS.
