Are any B777's currently being used as freighters?

No. However, United is asking Boeing to launch the freighter version of 777, so they can replace the old DC-10. But UA didn't ger any answers from Boeing.

Boeing is currently not offering a freighter version of the 777. However to compete with Airbus, Boeing should work on offering a 777F asap.

I've heard Boeing does not want to offer a 777F because it could potentially cut into 744F sales. It seems like the 777 would make a great freighter though. Do frieghters have ETOPS restrictions? If not the 777F would probably sell very well.
