Wow. What is wrong with allowing a person to have control over a device that they purchase?

Most tablets are bought OUTRIGHT - NO CONTRACT - But it will not be up to you , the owner , what you do with it. ( at least legally )

Apply this logic to a new car you purchase or a new computer.

This doesn't make sense. I would like to know the logic they applied to making jailbreaking tablets illegal. Are they specifically talking about 3G tablets, or does this also apply to tablets with WiFi only? I would hope this doesn't apply to the latter!

At the very least, a device purchased at full price should be unlocked.

They will unlock it if you pay full retail just try getting in touch with the correct dept. The can't know how many to sell unlocked so they are locked and if you meet their guidelines then they will unlock it. This will cut down on fraud and people are pissed.. so sad

Someone's palms was greased with some green. THAT'S the logic they are following.
