Verizon's yr over yr growth in iPhone was 25%. (Q1 2012 sold 3.2M, Q1 2013 sold 4M.)
Again, that's a 25% yr-over-yr growth.
Instead of feeling good about these numbers, I feel like I am in the twilight zone as major publications are focusing on the quarter-to-quarter decline. Which is (and has always been) an unreasonable comparison given the new product launch and holiday season during the last quarter.
Oh, by-the-way, android yr-to-yr growth at Verizon was... 3%. Yup, 3.2%!!
