    Default AT&T Releases 2Q 2012 Financial Results


    AT&T recently 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. This change is expected as customers begin to slow their purchases ahead of the next-generation iPhone launch.

    One of the more notable things that should be pointed out is that AT&T’s 3.7 million iPhone activations accounted for roughly 73% of the carriers 5.1 million total smartphone sales during the quarter. This number is still down slightly from last quarter’s share. With smartphones now account for 77% of AT&T’s total postpaid device sales, the iPhone represents roughly 55% of the carriers total phone sales to contract customers (a number which is also down from last quarter’s 60%). AT&T mentioned the following in its recent press release:

    AT&T 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 AT&T's postpaid subscribers had smartphones, up from 49.9 percent, or 34.1 million, a year earlier. AT&T's ARPU for smartphones is twice that of non-smartphone subscribers, and about 88 percent of smartphone subscribers are on FamilyTalk® or business plans. Churn levels for these subscribers are significantly lower than for other postpaid subscribers. More than one-third of AT&T's postpaid smartphone customers use a 4G-capable device.

    Android, iPhone and Windows device sales were supported by AT&T's 4G network. Only AT&T's 4G network lets iPhone 4S download three-times faster than any other U.S. carrier's network. In the quarter, the company activated 3.7 million iPhones, with 22 percent new to AT&T.
    With Verizon previously reporting their results in which iPhone sales experienced a 16% quarter-over-quarter drop and AT&T’s reveal a similar 14% decline, the performances are generally still being viewed as positive for Apple which is said to report its earnings after closing of today’s trades. Analysts were already expecting Apple’s overall iPhone sales to decline this quarter ahead of the next iPhone launch. With the company’s domestic sales holding up relatively well and international sales continually helping expand the sales and the outreach of the iPhone, the company is likely to post positive results for its primary source of revenue.

    I envision a mass exodus of sorts once the iPhone is LTE. The massively larger network and doubled data allotments at Verizon will start shining. Especially when AT&T announces bad-for-consumer pricing schemes and policy on a near weekly pace.

    And they want to throttle data speeds for us customers who are grandfathered into unlimited data when we go over 3 gigs of data per month!
