AT&T activates 10.2 million smartphones in Q4, 8.6 million of them were Apple iPhones

16th consecutive quarterly increase in postpaid ARPU, or Average Revenue Per User. In Q4, this metric rose 1.9% to $64.98. At the moment, 69.6% of all phones running on the AT&T network is a smartphone, totaling 47.1 million units for a gain of 2.5 million from Q3. Two-thirds of AT&T's smartphone users are now on a tiered or shared mobile plan. 6.6 million of those customers are on Mobile Share and more than 25% of those accounts share 10GB of data or more each month. 75% of those using a tiered plan have selected the highest priced one available.
The mobile operator sold 10.2 million smartphones in the 12 weeks and 8.6 million were Apple iPhones. That means 1.6 million smartphones sold were Windows Phone, BlackBerry or Android models.
It doesn't appear as though this report will move the stock in one direction or another. After-hours, AT&T's shares are down 2 cents to $33.73.

Almost seems fruitless for any other OEM to intro a phone for AT&T, let alone have an exclusivity with AT&T. Just imagine if the 920 were available on all carriers. I think Nokia and WP8 would be doing much better.

I love Nokia but your assumption is just more like a wishful thinking. I guess S3 is selling well too.

I agree. If AT&T is going to be an iPhone network, other OEMs shouldn't even try. My 920 is awesome but I feel like ATT only carried it to prevent Verizon from lifting it off the ground, not to show others they diversify. Just walk into a carrier store. They are all packing iPhones and only wish to sell iPhones.

If we assume 500K were WP and/or BB devices it leaves 1.1m for android. lol... That stupid smile on larry paige's face would be falling off right about now, especially if this trend away from android spreads to overseas markets. .

At my local AT&T store the Reps are mixed I talk to one guy there that knows his stuff and he is all about Android phones knows a lot about Android and hates Apple cause he doesn't get good spiffs/money from them like Android OEMs. Then there are other reps that show people their Iphones and how to use them I don't really talk to them. I never saw any reps there with a Windows 7 phone though. I remember a few years ago the reps only used 2 phones some had Iphones and others had Black Berrys .
