Verizon also saw its earnings rise to $1.44 billion, or 51 cents per share, from $443 million, or 16 cents a share in the year ago quarter. Interestingly, the company’s results press release states that operating cash flow was $5 billion in the quarter, down from $7.1 billion in Q1 2010, offset by the launch of the iPhone, as well as a pension funding obligation.
