More Than 51 Percents of Verizon’s Activations was for iPhones

Oct 22 2013, 1:39am CDT | by

Verizon sold more than 3.9 million iPhones in this year’s third quarter, more than half of total sales

During the third quarter, Apple iPhones made up about 51 percent of the activations of smartphones by Verizon Wireless.

According to the Verizon Wireless Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo, Verizon Wireless reported selling more than one million smartphones in the third quarter. Verizon activated during that period about 7.6 million smartphones and  3.9 million of them were Apple iPhones. iPhones made up 51 percent of total activations, a jump from 46 percent last year. It was the same number of Phones Verizon sold the previous quarter when iP|hone 5 came out, and up from 3.1 million sold the same quarter last year.

Apple started selling the iPhone 5C and 5S on Sept. 20, but not all models were available to all carriers. Shammo reported that Verizon had problem with sufficient supply of iPhones.  This “supply constraints" forced Verizon roll most of the sales to the next quarter.  He said that the stores had sufficient number of 5C models, but had problems with the supply of  iPhone 5S models. Rumor has it that only a month after launching iPhone 5S, Apple reduced production of the cheaper, plastic iPhone 5C.
