Sprint just released earnings for Q3, and while the company managed to add their best ever amount of net new wireless subscribers — 1.3 million — Sprint still lost 44,000 subs. Sprint’s postpaid ARPU has grown by $1 sequentially and $3 year-over-year as well. Sprint still didn’t make money this quarter, though, with a reported net loss of $301 million, down from a net loss of $911 million one year ago. Investors were looking to see a number north of around $-0.22 a share, and Sprint’s diluted loss for the quarter came in at $-0.10 a share. Of note: Sprint’s iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S sales are not included in here as the phones didn’t launch until October 14th. Full release is available at Sprint’s investor site.
