Unlocking Your Cellphone is Now Officially Legal - Obama

President Barack Obama signed a bill into law Friday that aims to make it legal for consumers to “unlock” their cell phones in order to change their cell phone service providers without paying for a new phone.

The bill is known as the Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act, which orders the U.S. Library of Congress (LoC) to allow cell phone owners to "unlock" their devices – typically “locked,” to a specific service provider like AT&T or Verizon – for its use on other networks without the permission of their service provider.
"As long as their phone is compatible and they have complied with their contracts, consumers will now be able to enjoy the freedom of taking their mobile service - and a phone they already own - to the carrier that best fits their needs," the White House said in a statement.
UNLOCKING Vs. JAILBREAKING
Unlocking means the device can only access the network of a particular telecomm, like AT&T or Verizon.
