    Unlocking, jail breaking, rooting… yep.

    Yep! That’s very easy! Just go to the apple store, Sony, Samsung, or either
    the phones companies, buy a phone at retail price and they will give it to
    you unlock! Very simple! Of course cheap people will complain thinking they
    buy a phone under contract from $1-$200 and then try to unlock! You are
    stealing money right there!

    I hate to be a basher,but this is typical American legal procedure,a
    procedure which is to suck as much corporate cock as possible and fuck what
    the people think.American government is corporate-owned and the Brit
    government is anti-liberty.

    Hey everyone! The White House petition to decriminalize unlocking
    smartphones is gaining some traction. If you’re opposed to this rule (and
    if you aren’t, you and I need to discuss this!) I added the link to the
    description. -Kim

    In Portugal, after 2 years, the carrier is obligated to unlock your phone
    for you, if you ask.

    This is why I don’t bother with smartphones. I saw this coming years ago
    and I’m actually surprised it took our government this long to finally take
    this right away from us. PC’s & Laptops FTW!

    Who the fuck goes into a shop to find out how to unlock their phone? Good
    luck enforcing that law.

    Yup, you can bet your bottom dollar that Apple lobbied hard for this little
    gem!

    I don’t own a phone now, I want one, but honestly I do not respect this law
    in the slightest. They should at least force carriers to give the unlock
    code after the contract is over, why should a carrier have a hand in
    something that isn’t theirs anymore? I hope its hacked out of spite now…
    guess I’ll just keep using a netbook with google voice
