With iPhone, all the carriers have it anyway. iPhone owners ususally just jailbreak to modify the way the OS works.
Android users unlock their phones in order to be able to put custom ROMs on.
I've hung around a few android forums in my day and have never seen a post that said "I can't wait to buy a Droid Razr, unlock it and then run that bad boy on AT&T!"
This is just a sliver of the stat, but right at this moment, there are 32,909 active listings for unlocked cell phones on ebay. These people, btw, are the target of this law.
