Per T's 3Q 10Q, with the columns showing, left to right, 3Q12, 3Q11, first 9 months 2012, first 9 months 2011 (sorry, I don't know how to line the colunms up)

Net Income 3,701 3,686 11,318 10,812
Less: Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interest (66) (63) (197) (190)
Net Income Attributable to AT&T $ 3,635 $ 3,623 $ 11,121 $ 10,622
Basic Earnings Per Share Attributable to AT&T $ 0.63 $ 0.61 $ 1.90 $ 1.79
Diluted Earnings Per Share Attributable to AT&T $ 0.63 $ 0.61 $ 1.90 $ 1.79
Weighted Average Number of Common Shares
Outstanding – Basic (in millions) 5,771 5,936 5,848 5,931
Weighted Average Number of Common Shares
Outstanding – with Dilution (in millions) 5,792 5,954 5,869 5,950
Dividends Declared Per Common Share $ 0.44 $ 0.43 $ 1.32 $ 1.29

So based on the first 3 quarters, the dividend to earnings POR is $1.32/$1.90 = 69.5%
