Reporting its third-quarter financial results, Apple’s U.S. iPhone carrier partner AT&T revealed that it saw 2.4 million iPhone activations from the device’s launch on July 11 to the end of September.
Of those 2.4 million activations, approximately 40 percent were new AT&T wireless customers. “I am particularly pleased with the customer response to the iPhone 3G,” said AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson.
“The new customers we’re winning are high-value, with attractive revenue and churn profiles. We’re expanding the market, as users adopt more data and media-rich services and access a wide array of applications.
