1. Why is jailbreaking/rooting a tablet different from jailbreaking/rooting a phone?

2. Why should unlocking a phone be illegal?

Because the law was written by politicians who are whores to the industry.

They definitely dont look out for the consumer lol or there would be goals for the number of that will be unlocked...This prevents consumer choice.

I have no idea why tablets are being differentiated, but as for unlocking a phone, it would be illegal if you got a subsidised device and signed a contract.

If you paid full retail, it was probably unlocked when you purchased it if requested.
