( — June 5, 2013) Los Angeles, CA — Unlocking a cell phone for use on other carriers is illegal under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998.  Such a policy means that those unlocking their phones could face up to five years in jail and a $500,000 fine. Unlocking your phone not only allows you to move from carrier to another when your contract is up: it also increases the resale value of your device. It makes you wonder, if you can’t alter the settings on your phone, do you even own your phone?

Solvei, T-Mobile and Sprint is strongly in favor of unlocking. At&T and Verizon are proponents of device lockin

The White house recently came out in support of finding legislative fixes to solve this problem. The Federal Communication Commision has announced an investigation into this issue, and the chairman and a commissioner have spoken in support of unlocking.
