Sprint, an American telecom, has posted its Q2 2013 earnings numbers. The company operated as a loss this quarter, losing a hefty $847 million. Though sales were slightly down, Spring managed to sell 1.4 million iPhones during the quarter, down 100,000 from last quarter. However, the good news is is that 41% of these iPhone sales were to new Sprint customers. This is good news for Apple as it continues to bring in new users. If you’d like to hear these numbers for yourself, you can listen to Sprint’s conference call on their website.
