    One in nine AT&T subscribers has an iPhone... impressive.

    Does AT&T account for phone subsidies according to a subscription model (like the whole thing Apple makes a stink about in terms of how they amortize the profits from the iPhone) or do they take an up-front hit each period?

    Also impressive is the fact that 1/3 of their 2.4 million iPhone activations were "new business customers" and that's where new contracts, data plans, and voice plans = new money.....:cool::cool::cool:
