The Apple iPhone made up 20% of T-Mobile's smartphone sales in Q2
Early Thursday morning, we passed along T-Mobile's second quarter earnings report. For the most part, it was a strong three months for the carrier, although the view was a bit murky thanks to the inclusion of MetroPCS for two of the three months in the quarter. The nation's fourth largest carrier started selling the Apple iPhone 5 on April 12th, which helped T-Mobile sell 4.3 million smartphones in the quarter. Besides the iPhone, T-Mobile's press release also credited the strong showing to sales of the Samsung Galaxy S4.

It just so happens that T-Mobile later revealed the sales totals for the two phones during a conference call. The mobile operator sold 900,000 Apple iPhones from the launch date through the end of June, while 600,000 units of the Samsung Galaxy S4 went out the door. That means 21% of the carrier's smartphone sales for Q2 were for Apple's iconic smartphone while the Galaxy S4 made up 14% of T-Mobile's smartphone sales.

It will be interesting to see if T-Mobile customers remain as entranced by the iPhone in the current quarter now that the novelty of seeing the phone wearing the T-Mobile brand is beginning to wear off.
