iPhone Represents 73% of Smartphone Sales, 55% of All Postpaid

ATT today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2012, revealing that the carrier activated 3.7 million iPhones during the quarter, down from 4.3 million in the previous quarter as customers begin to slow their purchases ahead of the next-generation iPhone launch.


Notably, ATT’s 3.7 million iPhone activations accounts for roughly 73% of the carriers 5.1 million total smartphone sales during the quarter, down slightly from last quarter’s share. With smartphones now accounting for 77% of ATT’s total postpaid device sales, the iPhone represents approximately 55% of the carrier’s total phone sales to contract customers, down slightly from last quarter’s 60% share.

ATT sold 5.1 million smartphones in the second quarter. Smartphones represented 77 percent of postpaid device sales. At the end of the quarter, 61.9 percent, or 43.1 million, of ATT’s postpaid subscribers had smartphones, up from 49.9 percent, or 34.1 million, a year earlier.
