AT&T activated 4.3 million iPhone 3G devices in the second half of 2008 nationwide, including 1.9 million in the fourth quarter.  About 40 percent of iPhone activations were for customers switching from a different provider.

"iPhone 3G continues to deliver high-value subscribers with significantly higher average monthly revenues per subscriber and lower churn (subscribers leaving) than AT&T's postpaid subscriber average," the company added.


According to the Wall Street Journal, Verizon activated about 500,000 Storms nationwide.  The iPhone sold almost four times as many in the fourth quarter with 1.9 million units.

Comparing results in each device's first quarter on the market, Apple's iPhone 3G saw five times the number of U.S. activations than the Storm, or 2.4 million.
