2.4 million iPhones activated by AT&T in the second quarter
AT&T reported second quarter earnings and while they were 16% lower than the prior year's total, the numbers still beat analysts' estimates. The carrier had profits of  $3.2 billion dollars vs. the $3.8 billion dollars scored in 2008. Revenue dropped a mere 1% from last year to $30.7 billion dollars. Helping support the cash flow was activation of 2.4 million iPhones in the period as the new iPhone 3GS came to market in June. 792,000 of those were new AT&T customers, an impressive figure.

Looking at the whole picture, AT&T added 1.4 million net new wireless subscribers in the quarter to bring the total to 79.6 million. So far this year, the networker has added 6.7 million people to that figure. Wireless data revenue leaped 37.2%  in the second quarter to reach a total of $3.4 billion dollars. For the sixth consecutive period, AT&T's wireless ARPU (average monthly revenue per subscriber) rose. The figure for the latest three month quarter was up 2.3% to $60.21.
