FCC to Investigate Cell Phone Unlocking Ban

The FCC has heard the outcry from the cell phone faction and is investigating whether or not the ban on unlocking cell phones disrupts competition among carriers. The FCC is wading into uncharted waters here testing the parameters of the Agency’s authority to change the ban law.

If the FCC does discover some latent authority to give users more freedom over their choice in carriers, it will mean another big victory for grassroots Internet activism.
