Verizon managed to rake in $5.2 billion in profit amidst $29.8 billion in total revenue. Compared to the same time period last year Verizon is up more than 4.3 percent in revenue and over 16 percent in profits. The company says that 64 percent of its users are now on smartphones which is up 3 percent from last year, and the company managed to activate 7.5 million smartphones of which 6.4 million were LTE devices.

The Verge is reporting that during the financial earnings call to investors, Verizon CFO Fran Shammo confirmed the company's plans to launch a new financing program called Edge. Unfortunately, that is where the details ended, but we can expect Edge to be a clone of T-Mobile's "Jump" program and AT&T's "Next" initiative.
