AT&T, the first carrier to ever hold the iPhone, has not released exact numbers, but they are excited with the results of Apple’s iPhone 5 pre-orders, of which (and I quote):
AT&T set a sales record with iPhone 5 over the weekend, making it the fastest-selling iPhone the company has ever offered. Customers ordered more iPhones from AT&T than any previous model both on its first day of pre-orders and over the weekend.
iPhone 5 is still available for pre-order at www.att.com/iphone and will be available in AT&T retail stores beginning at 8am local time on Friday, September 21
The real shocker? Apple released some numbers. In the first 24 hours of availability, the iPhone 5 was pre-ordered 2 million times. According to Apple, a majority of those pre-orders will arrive in the mail by September 21st.
