One Year Later, Unlocking Your Phone Is Still a Crime

This one comes from the archives of the "How soon we forget" department. If you can recall back about a year, you would remember a big flap over the Library of Congress ruling it a crime to unlock your cellphone. Most of the major companies looked the other way to save their own interests, but guess whatآ….the law is still on the books and is still enforceable.

One year later, despite an overwhelming consensus in favor of unlocking, unlocking your phone, without permission from your carrier, is still a crime.
