Despite that, it has an estimated 10 million iPhone users – even though its current 3G technology is not fully compatible with available iPhone models. China Unicom and China Telecom  already offer the iPhone. Apple and China Mobile have been in negotiations to bring the iPhone to the carrier for some time.
