According to Apple’s quarterly results, fully 17% of all iPhones sold are unlocked and roaming on networks other than AT&T’s.

Apple’s recently reported third-quarter results were full of interesting figures.

Perhaps the most interesting is that of the 1.4 million iPhones sold, 250,000 (or 17%) of them have been unlocked.

They believe this because they’ve subtracted the number of iPhones activated on AT&T’s network from the total number of iPhones sold.

Um. That figure is pretty danged high.

Not only that, the iPhone Dev Team is reporting that there have been 500,000 downloads of its AnySIM 1.0 unlocker program.

That means more than one-third of everyone who bought an iPhone has decided that they might hack it.
