NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Want to buy a Verizon ( VZ) iPhone, but you didn't pre-order and you don't want to stand in line at the Apple ( AAPL) or Verizon store? Maybe you'd like to be efficient and make the trip to get the phone while picking up a few other things, like a loaf of bread. Think again.The drama surrounding the arrival of the Verizon iPhone continued with trying to decipher which retail outlets would get to sell the device. Exclusive dealers soon found they weren't so exclusive; big-box stores that sell the AT&T ( T) version of the iPhone were suddenly secretive as to whether they were stocking the new phone. Some stores did not announce they would be selling the product until just a few days ago.
