  • Quarterly income is $30.1B and quarterly net income is $3.1B.
  • Cingular added 2M cell subs = 65.7 million subs
  • U-verse has 126,000 subs (no wonder att is bidding on DISH)
  • U-verse ouch: "That service got off to a slow start because of glitches with the relatively untested technology, which uses software provided mostly by Microsoft Corp. U-verse also experienced a systemwide outage Sunday, caused by a software change that affected the database used to track which channels customers receive, Lindner said." [source]
