Free Our Phones -- For Real
Last month, more than 100,000 people told the White House that cellphone unlocking — configuring your phone so it’ll work on other networks — should be legal again. The White House agrees and has told Congress and the FCC to do something about it.
Now all kinds of bills are on the table. But here’s the deal:
Our phones shouldn't be locked in the first place.
Here's the bottom line: We should be able to use our cellphones however we want. Period.
Send Congress a message: Any unlocking bill must incorporate the basic principles of mobile freedom.
