iPhone Gives AT&T Increased Earnings and Activations
AT&T has posted their 3rd Quarter earnings and I bet you can't guess that the iPhone has played a big role in AT&T's profits and new subscribers.
While profits from the iPhone 3g weren't as high as they could have been due to the iPhone subsity AT&T is doing very well from their contract with Apple. 2.4 million iPhones were activated on AT&T last quarter with a whopping 40% of those being new users.
It seems where ever the iPhone went success and money followed last quarter. Apple isn't the only company raking it in from the iPhone.

I think I remember reading that AT&T lost lots (thousands) on all of the increased data going over there networks. Is that true?

i dont get it.. is AT&T not losing alot cause the sms numbers have come down.. we know bitesms can forward yet how many actually use it and its still a loss by the time they know about it..

I highly doubt that bitesms even dents their profit earnings.
Edit: ignore the word 'profit'.
