AT&T: Most iPhone Activations Ever
If AT&T is about to lose its iPhone exclusivity, it certainly signed up a lot of customers ahead of time. The company announced as part of its earnings earlier this week that it broke records in the last quarter for both iPhone activations and overall postpaid mobile phone activations.
The carrier activated 8 million devices in the third quarter, 5.2 million of which were iPhones.
AT&T posted a $12.3 billion profit in the third quarter, compared with $3.2 billion last year.
