Apple iPhone 3G S Launch Was AT&T’s Best Ever Sales Day

Last month AT&T had the best month ever with the release of the Apple iPhone 3G S.  Below is a list of some of the milestones achieved by the phone’s launch:

– Best ever sales day in retail stores
– Second largest traffic day in retail stores
– Most transactions processed through IT systems in a single day
– Largest order day in history on
– Most upgrade eligibility checks in one day
– Largest features sales day on

On June 25, when Michael Jackson died — AT&T processed 65,000 text messages per second — the largest ever recorded.

When the Palm Pre launched in June, Sprint also broke sales records.  Given that Sprint and AT&T had the best month ever last month, I’m wondering what Verizon has up their sleeve.
