AT&T: More Than 2.4 million New iPhone Activations in Q2 2009

It was quite obvious after knowing the impressive 5.2 Million iPhone units sold in Q3 of Apple’s fiscal year 2009 that AT&T would also be enjoying some handsome amount of money out of iPhone exclusivity in U.S.

A day after the Apple’s announcement of financial figures, AT&T has come with the statement that they have activated 2.4 million new iPhone during the Q2 (ended June 30) of fiscal year 2009. Not only in iPhone users, AT&T also enjoyed an impressive growth in Wireless.

AT&T Press Release:

More than 2.4 million iPhone activations in the second quarter, reflecting a record-setting iPhone 3GS launch.

AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today reported second-quarter results highlighted by strong wireless growth, including a substantial step up in retail postpaid subscriber additions and continued robust growth in wireless data revenues. Results also included double-digit growth in IP-based revenues from AT&T U-verse services and advanced business offerings.

Progress in these areas and solid cost management largely offset economic pressures and increased volume-based acquisition costs associated with the company’s highly successful iPhone 3GS launch to drive financial results that were generally in line with the first quarter of 2009.

AT&T is making roughly $95 from each iPhone customer. On the other hand they are making only $59 from non-iPhone customers. In short, AT&T is enjoying huge cash (Thanks to iPhone users).

AT&T can cheer their customers up a bit if they enable Tethering and MMS that are offered in iPhone OS 3.0 but currently disabled by AT&T.
