AT&T (T) has bumped up its 2012 smartphone sales forecast to 26M from 25M, while adding 6.4M smartphones were sold over the first 2 months of Q4. For reference, Ma Bell sold 6M smartphones in the first 2 months of Q4 last year, and 6.1M in the whole of Q3. The disclosure is a modest positive for Apple (AAPL), given the iPhone accounted for 77% of AT&T's Q3 smartphone sales. And also for Synchronoss (SNCR), whose software provisions and activates AT&T's smartphones.
