Score one for AT&T in the battle of the iPhones.

The wireless network reports it activated 1.3 million more iPhones in the second quarter than Verizon. A quarter of its iPhone customers were new to AT&T.

Verizon started selling the iPhone in February.

Many analysts had predicted that Verizon would get more new subscribers and that AT&T would mostly sell phones to existing customers due for an upgrade.
