Freedom of Choice.....

Is the foundation and the basis of the U.S. Constitution.
If something like a Mobile-Communication device can not be "un-locked" to give customers that freedom, we have a serious oversight issue at hand by corporations that are simply greedy.
A prision cell one does not unlock, but a cell-phone...come on!!!!
No one get hurt except the carriers greedy pockets which already are more than filled.

You can have all the 'unlocked' devices you can eat, as long as you are willing to pay full retai.

If you want a subsidised device, you are going to get a locked device.

Apple sells unlocked iPhones, just not for $199.99

Basically correct.
That's why there is Amazon, E-bay and other sites that sell unlocked phones of all types. Cheaper than what the carriers charge for full retail. No need to go through the carrier anymore.
