This makes me fucking livid. Its in the news.. Google it. As of this weekend it is now illegal to unlock your smartphone, subject to up to a $500,000 fine and up to five years in prison. Therefore it is now illegal to unlock your bought-and-paid-for smartphone to use on other carriers. You have to buy a new one. If this is the case then give a free fucking phone with every plan.. if I cant touch the phone I paid for motherfuckers.
