02 has shifted 190,000 iPhones in its first two months of sales, just short of its target of 200,000.
Neither O2 nor the Carphone Warehouse, which sells the handsets, would comment on the figures which were leaked to the FT. But it did tell the paper the handset was its best selling ever by a large margin.
Carphone Warehouse was asked about iPhone sales during a conference call last week and referred all questions to Apple.
Some analysts had regarded 200,000 as a conservative estimate of sales, with some predicting that numbers could reach 350,000 to 400,000.
