Jailbreaking cell phones to become ILLEGAL at midnight
A new law that makes it illegal to 'unlock' your cell phone and switch carriers goes into effect today and will carry fines between $2,500 and $500,000, and in some cases, prison time.

The change made by the U.S. Copyright Office and Library of Congress to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act will make it illegal for consumers to unlock mobile devices without the permission of their carrier.

The lock feature on mobile devices essentially allows carriers a way to prevent customers from switching to a new plan with a different company. Unless your phone came unlocked and are grandfathered in under the law, you're device is legally chained to your service provider.

If your carrier goes bankrupt you must buy a new phone, that's pretty smart.

Re: Jailbreaking cell phones to become ILLEGAL at midnight
Just to clarify, I don't think jailbreaking is illegal. Changing your radios may be switching the radios and jailbreaking is different. Either way it is fucking horrible. You bought it paid for it is yours. These politicians have soldus out so far down the river it is sad. The leaders of the free world what a joke. Becoming an adult having a family working hard to live free and raise my family how I see fit. Guess what you grewup and your new parents are the government who choose everything for you.

You may, if your carrier goes sour, for your own phone, to continue because their gone, flash your own phone, and not receive any monetary gain (it's your phone), to make your device worth it's value.

You can not gain commercially from your own property, given your just making it work again. You will labor.

Not everyone knows how, is the problem.

Also that example indicates the company is gone, therefore you should have been given notice by them ( an ok), nor could they pursue you, given they non provider of services, no rendering.
