In Verizon’s report about their financial earnings for the first quarter of 2011, the company announced that they activated 2.2 million iPhones, and added 1.8 million new wireless subscribers to their customer base. While AT&T announced that they sold 3.6 million new iPhones in Q1 2011, it is noted that Verizon didn’t start selling the iPhone until February, so AT&T had a head start when it came to sales of the iOS phone. But the iPhone wasn’t the only reason for growth on Big Red’s network. Very impressive numbers for the carrier that also hit their most successful first—day sales in their company’s history for the iPhone 4.
The carrier also stated that it activated 500,000 4G devices during Q1, including 260,000 HTC ThunderBolt phones in a 2-week span. It looks like things are looking up for Big Red this year, but we’re left wondering about what Big Red has in store for us this year. How many of you contributed to the sales of the Verizon iPhone 4 last quarter?
