Verizon: 4.2 Million iPhones Sold During Holiday Quarter
Oops. It looks as though Verizon's chief financial officer Fran Shammo prematurely spilled the beans on a major fact of business for the nation's largest wireless carrier.
The revelation came at the Citi Global Entertainment Media & Communications Conference on Wednesday where Shammo was speaking.
It isn't clear exactly why the Verizon executive opted to reveal this information only a few weeks before Apple is set to report earnings for the holiday sales quarter, but one thing is for sure: Verizon apparently sold a whole bunch of iPhones.
As the numbers indicate, for the final three months of 2011, Verizon logged twice the number of iPhones it sold during the third quarter of last year. By comparison, AT&T sold 2.7 million iPhones in the third quarter. And it now appears that both carriers may be neck-and-neck in terms of Q4 iPhone sales.
The reason, according to AT&T and Verizon, that Q3 iPhone sales were a tad sluggish is because consumers were eagerly awaiting the next-gen iPhone, which ultimately debuted in October (after Q3 ended in September). And, as we all know, the iPhone 4S became the best selling new iPhone in Apple history.
In the days ahead, we will finally see just how much cash the iPhone 4S craze has generated so far for Apple and its carrier partners in the United States.

Why would anyone buy the slowest iPhone?
AT&T and sprints are much faster.

There faster but ATT just started this ******** where if your in the top 5% of using data, then they slow your data speed down.
I get text every month saying that crap. At that point I can't watch movies on my phone, my Internet is slow as ****, and I'm definitely not tethering from my phone to my iPad.

I would go to sprint but I owe them some money for canceling my service with them and going to AT&T. I might jump over to Verizon after my plan is up. Does Verizon have a unlimited data plan as well?

I use between 5GB and 25GB of my unlimited data bandwidth during any given month. I haven't had my bandwidth throttled through AT&T. I still have very fast 3G connection speeds. Speeds which rival many DSL home Internet service providers.
I did receive a phone call and emails regarding my data usage when I upgraded to the 4S and within 2 weeks racked up nearly 30GB of data usage. They wanted to know what I was doing. After telling them that it wasn't their business asking their customers what they do with their services, I told them that whatever I was doing does not breach my agreement and they let me be. Still have yet to be throttled.
If you've been throttled, then you might be less than truthful about tethering .. whether legally or illegally.

This is what they send me every month.

AT&T will shut you off with that kind of usage. I know I have seen it happen. At the very least you are being throttled... if you are even telling the truth at all.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
