Canaccord: iPhone 5S is No. 1 at all U.S. carriers; 5C is No. 2 or 3

Only Samsung's Galaxy S4 is outselling the iPhone 5C, and only at Verizon and T-Mobile.

FORTUNE -- "Our September surveys indicated very strong initial sales and back orders for the iPhone 5s iphone cases otterbox defender video and strong iPhone 5c sales at the four tier-1 U.S. carriers and also in international markets."

So wrote Canaccord Genuity's T. Michael Walkley in a note to clients Friday that included the first published chart of where Apple's ( AAPL) new iPhones stood last month with respect to their competition at each of the major carriers.

That the iPhone 5S was selling briskly was no surprise.

What was a surprise, given initial reports of a " glut" of unsold units, is how well the iPhone 5C was doing. The Canaccord survey found it out-selling Samsung's Galaxy S4 at AT&T ( T) and Sprint ( S) despite shortages in certain colors and memory configurations.

The Galaxy S4, however, is still the No. 2 seller at Verizon ( VZ) and T-Mobile, thanks in part, according to Walkley, to price cuts that Samsung initiated in June.
