Reporting its second fiscal quarter financial results, U.S. iPhone carrier AT&T has revealed that it handled 3.2 million iPhone activations during the period. That number includes some sales of the iPhone 4; AT&T claims that preorder sales of the iPhone 4 were 10 times higher than the first day of preordering for the iPhone 3GS a year earlier. In addition, the 3.2 million activations is a new quarterly record for AT&T, with about 27%—roughly 864,000—of those activations representing customers who were new to AT&T.
