What do you mean "unlock"?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33709352


Here most cell phones are "locked" to a certain service provider. So even after your contract is over, you can't move your phone and service to an alternate provider.

There are two ways around this:

a) hack your own phone or;

b) buy your phone from the actual manufacturer at full price and I think Apple are the only folks that sell their phones to the general public.

Re: Unlock YOUR cell phone and GO TO JAIL
This is the stupidest law ever with COMPLETELY DISPROPORTIONATE PENALTIES - I mean LOOK at them:

ADVISORY

BY DECREE OF THE LIBRARIAN OF CONGRESS

IT SHALL HENCEFORCE BE ORDERED THAT AMERICANS SHALL NOT UNLOCK THEIR OWN SMARTPHONES.

PENALTY: In some situations, first time offenders may be fined up to $500,000, imprisoned for five years, or both. For repeat offenders, the maximum penalty increases to a fine of $1,000,000, imprisonment for up to ten years, or both.*

This is what happens when you allow Jews to control a country. The country becomes fascist.

I'm not too positive about the mid to long-term future of the USA.

True, and probably more than in the UK as well.

But we are still a democracy. Here they don't put people in jail for 5 years if you carry 0.05 gram of weed.

I think it's more about AT&T crying about all the iPhone users switching to T-mobile and Straight Talk.

Who are now selling sim cards which they can use on their unlocked devices. AT&T no longer has a monopoly for iPhone.

if you can't do whatever you want with your property, you don't own it. if you live in a society where you don't own property, you aren't free. if you live in a society where you aren't free, keep shooting until you are.
