Me too. If I'm paying upwards of $600 for a top of the line smartphone, I will unlock it if I want to. Obviously there are ALREADY consequences in place for doing this and leaving your carrier, which for most people is more than they can afford all at once. Imagine if they tried this with other products.. like say, a Car. Sure, you can buy the car, but you can ONLY get it serviced at this place and this place, even after the warranty is over. Seems pretty stupid and idiotic right? Exactly the way it seems to me with cellular phones. These people are jokers if they even think this will stop an individual from unlocking the device.

Look - If you know how to Root a phone, and have your own Roms, you can Re-lock the device, I have done it before, and it's easy to do. I flashed a T-Mobile rom back to a rooted phone that I had custom software on, and lo and behold, it was re-locked to T-Mobiles network.

This law is completly pointless... like LOTS of other laws in the United States.
