    Default 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 highly doubt that bitesms even dents their profit earnings.

    Edit: ignore the word 'profit'.
