1 Million Unlocked iPhones On T-Mobile
According to a report by 9 to 5 Mac, in a meeting with T-Mobile spokespeople ahead of the NYC Pepcom event, they were told there are nearly 1 million iPhones operating on T-Mobile's network in the U.S.
That is a lot of unlocked phones. While the majority of the unlocked iPhones are pre- iPhone 4 micro-sim models, the spokesman for T-Mobile did say a number of users had "taken the scissors" to their larger sim cards. The micro-sims that the iPhone 4 uses are smaller than traditional sim cards, but only in the size of the paper/cardboard housing the sim-cards employ. It is possible, and fairly easy to modify a standard 3G sim card so that it can fit in a micro-sim tray.
Still, 1 million iPhones on T-Mobile's network seems odd considering the iPhone does not support T-Mobile's 3G network, and Apple only officially started selling unlocked iPhones in the last few weeks in the states.
How many ModMyi users have an unlocked iPhone running on T-Mobile's network?
