iPhone Carriers Finally Increasing Their Margins
Decline in iPhone Sales to Thank

The iPhone may have revolutionized a new consumer electronic market, but it's been nothing but a drag on the carrier margins.

The carriers themselves are battling back against the steady bleed of their profits to Apple by finding ways to discourage iPhone upgrades (or at least charge for them) and to promote competing products (Verizon, for example, is pushing the Droid Razr with special deals and promotions on data and devices).

Apple's continued growth is owed largely to foreign growth in markets like China, growth that is widely considered unsustainable for the long-term. Has Apple just about peaked? Has the iPhone jumped the shark?
