AT&T have been called "America's worst carrier", but sticks and stones may break their bones, and names will never hurt them - in quarterly smartphone sales. The US wireless carrier's top tog, Ralph de la Vega, has been bragging about his company's smartphone sales in Q4 2012.

AT&T's Q4 2012 smartphone sales are already at 6.4 million, and we still have over three weeks of this month left. De la Vega also said that AT&T will sell 26 million smartphones over the entire year, up 1 million from the company's original expectations. De la Vega told investors at a conference this week:

What we're seeing is tremendous response in the marketplace. Excitement is at all time high. I feel very good about momentum going into December.

There were some that expected AT&T to hurt from the LTE iPhone, but the wireless carrier have expanded their portfolio of smartphones on offer to include the phenomenally popular, and main competitor to the iPhone - Samsung's Galaxy S III - as well as LG's Optimus G and Nokia's Lumia 920.
