The iPad may have dominated the Apple’s (AAPL) headlines for the past three months, but it’s likely that it contributed not a penny to the company’s bottom line in its second fiscal quarter of 2010, which ended on Saturday, March 27.

We won’t learn the actual results until they are released on April 20, but most analysts who follow the stock have already made educated guesses about how the quarter went, starting with Apple’s fastest-growing product line: the iPhone.

We’ve gathered some of those estimates below, and will add to the list as more come in. They range from a high of 7.85 million iPhones from Financial Alchemist’s Turley Muller — an independent with an unusually strong track record — to a low of 6 million from Citigroup’s Richard Gardner.

Even at the low end, that would represent a 58% year-over-year increase from Q2 2009. If Muller is right, iPhone unit sales increased 107% year over year.

Below the fold: The estimates.
