    Default Verizon Says 3.9 Million iPhones Were Activated in Q3


    Verizon on Thursday reported strong iPhone sales last quarter.

    The nation's largest carrier activated approximately 3.9 million iPhones in its third fiscal quarter of 2013.

    Overall, iPhone activations accounted for more than half of all smartphone activations for the carrier during the three-month period covered in the new report. Year-over-year for Q3, iPhone sales were up 26% through Verizon.

    According to Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo, Apple failed to provide Verizon with enough iPhone 5S units in the first weeks following its release, "resulting in a backlog of orders."

    Whatever new iPhones Verizon customers couldn't buy in September simply got pushed over to the current quarter, Shammo said.
    Apple is scheduled to announce its fourth-quarter financial report on October 28th.

    To be expected. I like how the #'s really shine with iOS from the carrier. Meaning, most times we get skewed #'s cause there are so many Android choices. This shows that iPhones ARE the clear winner. Over 1/2 of all phones activated were iPhones.

    iPhones are still going strong. Good to see even though people shoot them down all the time on here.

    iPhones but notice how conveniently the article leaves out WHICH iPhones were sold. The 99 cent iPhone 4S or the $50 iPhone 5.

    2 things are certain, Verizon could still owe apple $14b for failure to sell the iPhone 5 and if that wasnt enough we get this little tidbit about unsellable iPhone 5Cs.

    same thing happening in China where it was supposed to be a big hit.

    80% of the world's smart phones are Android vs 14% for iOS? clear winner? NOT.

    Again you compare an OS that is available to many device manufacturers. to one that is only available from a single manufacturer!

    I don't know why you are so threatened by the little guy.
