AT&T Announces Record 8.6 Million iPhone Activations For Holiday 2012 Quarter

AT&T has just released their latest quarterly earnings (for the holiday 2012 quarter), and reports some interesting (though not very surprising) smartphone numbers. AT&T activated a record 8.6 million iPhones during the quarter, making up a whopping 84% of their total smartphone sales.


From the press release:

Record Smartphone Sales and Strong Wireless Postpaid Net Adds

  • Wireless revenues up 5.7 percent versus the year-ago quarter; wireless service revenues up 4.2 percent
  • 780,000 wireless postpaid net adds, largest increase in three years; 1.1 million increase in total net wireless subscribers
  • Record smartphone sales of 10.2 million, the most ever sold by any U.S. carrier; postpaid smartphone customer base now 47.1 million, up 2.5 million from third-quarter 2012
  • Smartphones 89 percent of postpaid phone sales
  • Postpaid wireless subscriber ARPU (average monthly revenues per subscriber) up 1.9 percent to $64.98

By comparison, Verizon activated 6.2 million iPhones during the same quarter, making up about two thirds of their total smartphone activations. In addition, the report notes that wireless revenues for the carrier have grown 5.7% year over year.

The iPhone is kicking ass at the two largest U.S. wireless carriers, and Apple also announced record iPhone sales for the quarter in their own earnings report yesterday. Just don’t tell the Apple analysts and concerned investors – as far as they’re concerned, Apple is clearly doomed!
