FYI: It’s now illegal to unlock your phone, guys
- then In October, the U.S. Library of Congress, in charge of rules related to the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DCMA), decided that it would be illegal to unlock phones sold by U.S. carriers, so to allow off-brand carriers and SIM cards. You can read the full ruling here.
- now Three months later, the grace period put into effect after that decision has ended, and unlocking your phone is now, indeed, prohibited. Carriers could now theoretically sue over it, though how aggressively they will try to enforce this is yet unclear. source
