Apple (AAPL -0.8%) investors are unlikely to complain about Verizon's (VZ -2.2%) Q4 report (I, II),. Big Red says 4.3M, or 56%, of the 7.7M smartphones it sold in Q4 were iPhones. By contrast, only 36% of Verizon's Q3 smartphone sales (2M out of 5.6M) involved iPhones, as buyers waited for a new model to arrive. 44% of Verizon's retail postpaid subscribers are now smartphone users, up from 39% in Q3.
