    Default Unlocking your new smartphone is now illegal: What you need to know.

    It is now illegal under federal law to unlock your cell phone without permission from your wireless carrier. Here’s a quick quick to answer all your why, how, and WTF questions.



    As of today, it is illegal to unlock your new smartphone. This rule, issued by the Librarian of Congress in October, is seen by many as a slap in the face of consumers who wish to do what they want, when they want, with the devices they own. But there are a few silver linings in this dark cloud. Here are answers to all the pertinent questions about the new no-unlock rule.

    Why is it illegal to unlock a smartphone?


    Was this always the case?


    Why did the rule change?


    Is it illegal to unlock all smartphones?


    What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?


    What are the downsides of unlocked phones?


    Is jailbreaking the same as unlocking?


    Is there a legal way for me to unlock my phone?


    What happens if I unlock my device anyway?

    I never buy new phones directly from the carrier, always second hand. This doesn't really affect me much, but for others it must be a pain.

    Thanks for the info TJ.
