The Verizon statement reveals that the annual increase in services has been probed as 6.3 % on the basis of 1.8 million new customers including 906,000 retail postpaid net customer additions. The Verizon Financial Statement for 1Q 2011 report also reads; 22.3 % increase in data revenues alongside 25.8% rise in operating income margin.

The activation of 2.2 million iPhones in 4 weeks is not only credit achieved by Verison Wireless but it has also 260,000 HTC Thunderbolt units for a period of only two weeks.


Timothy Cook told analysts on a conference call yesterday that US iPhone sales grew 150 percent annually, meaning some 6.75 million units were sold in the US in the entire first quarter. So, Verizon’s 2.2 million iPhones plus the 3.6 million units activated on the AT&T network leaves about a million iPhones (or 950,000 units) in the US channel inventory.

These are the units either waiting to be activated or stocked. This estimate doesn’t take into account iPhone sales at third-party retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, Target and others which, of course, are also activated on either AT&T or Verizon network.

Another aspect of Verizon Wireless 1Q 2011 financial performance is its rate of selling iPhones which kissed a figure of 53000 units per day that is obviously higher than its competitor AT&T since the later one touched a selling rate of 40,000 units per day only. Amazingly, the combined share of activating iPhones for both Verizon Wireless & AT&T mobile carriers has been determined as 1/3 of the total 18.65 million iPhones sold our globally in this quarter.
