Best Buy price matched for me, didn't even need to show them an ad or anything. Quick and easy.
My experience as well. No discussion; no debate from them. I only asked if they were PMing to Walmart and she said yes.
You and the others that got in earlier seem to have gotten lucky. Your timing being accepted for the pricematch dovetails with the sequence of events that Best Buy initially allowed price matches, but when the volume of price matches in this relatively long (2 weeks) promotion at a very cheap price became too large, they started their BS campaign, denying price matches and having "system problems". That seemed to start about the 23rd/24th, maybe as early as the 22nd.
Mine was on the 24th.

purchasing the phone from wal-mart at $127 would require a 2 year contract. I guess you could give it to your friend (if you had another phone to use on that carrier).
we have a back up phone. im just more worried if theres any restrictions on giving the phone to a friend. i was told that youre supposed to keep the data plan for 6 months if you were to upgrade to the iphone 5. is that true?
tl;dr: i just want to use my contract thats been up for over two years to buy the iphone 5 and give it to a friend without any catch. is that possible?
