Although it’s a popular choice, jailbreaking the iPhone, Apple’s recently announced 4 Million sold iPhones leaves something to be desired, since about half of them aren’t officially under AT&T contracts.
AT&T said that it ended 2007 with just around 2 million iPhone subscribers, which gives a girth for damaged/returned iPhones as well, but if over two million iPhones were damaged, there wouldn’t really be a market for the device.
So, there’s obviously over a million iPhone users on different networks using unofficially unlocked devices, but why? Alot of dispute over AT&T exclusive contract with Apple has really turned about 30% of the iPhone’s users to using complex methods of cracking, apparently.
