Unlocking Your Phone May Be Legal Once Again

Senate Bill 517, aka Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act, has passed Congress and is now on its way to the POTUS desk to be signed or vetoed.  It will once again allow consumers the right to “unlock/jailbreak” their smartphones/phones without violating the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). This means you can legally take your phone from ATT to T-Mobile and vice versa or use your phone internationally with an overseas SIM card rather that international roaming through your provider. if Bill 517 passes it will also will force the librarian of Congress to decide on wireless portable devices are eligible for unlocking.

All-in-all it has taken 19 months for Bill 517 to get where it is today and it got there because of readers like you who got online and signed the petition at the We The People website, which now has 114,000 signatures to date.
