AT&T sold twice as many Apple iPhone 5 units as Verizon did in the third quarter
AT&T released its third quarter earnings on Wednesday morning, revealing that it activated 4.7 million units of the Apple iPhone in the three month period. That is up from 3.7 million activated sequentially in the second quarter of 2012 and 2.7 million activated in Q3 of 2011. As we pointed out earlier today, that means 77% of all smartphones activated by AT&T in the quarter were iPhones.

AT&T also wanted to do a bit of bragging, revealing that it sold 1.3 million units of the new Apple iPhone 5 in the quarter, twice as many as the 650,000 sold in the same period by Verizon. Other stats show that after 5 weeks of being available, AT&T has signed up 2 million Mobile Share customers. We wonder how many signed up just to be able to use FaceTime over cellular. You might recall that the carrier is limiting that feature to its Mobile Share customers, unlike Verizon and Sprint.

Overall, AT&T now has 44.5 million smartphone using its pipeline, most of which are the Apple iPhone.
