I agree, of course you should have full access ot your device that you legally purchase. In fact, its hilarious to me that people have had their rights smashed for so long that they now agree with the policies of companies that deprive them of their own rights to their own device.

What?!!? You want to be able to put a Subscriber Identity Module from another carrier in the electrically compatible slot designed for said purpose? For the device you legally purchased, that has completed its contract and has no moneys owed on it or associated accounts? You want to remove the software we have placed on your phone that illegally limits your ability to use your own device?

Sucks to be you.

In fact that is what the Cellular companies said they are going to do after their "agreement" with the CTIA shill front organization, but the truth is that it doesnt help any one except the very few people who know they need to unlock the phone before the fact, are willing to jump thru the hoops put in place by the carrier they often now hate, are still able to access the account and still have the account open and active.

Sure, thanks CTIA, that's a very helpful "agreement" for the parent companies that pay your salaries. Of course that doesn't help the HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of GSM handsets that are still locked in the US, in fact the VAST majority. The carrier Could unlock them, in fact they are the only one that legally can, as the manufacturer will deny culpability in depriving you of your device. Carriers could just charge a fee and actually make a profit on unlocking old devices. But the truth is they know that their service sucks and they dont really care, and unlocking will make it easier for all their unhappy customers to leave. Customer Service is what you tell your customers you have so they think you care about more than their money.

Just break the law and pay to unlock it using a third party. Cmon, everybodies doing it, whats the harm? Its just a little federal law, we all break the rules all the time, Cmon, just do it, then your phone will be unlocked and you can use it with whoever you want, you want to be free don't you?

Maybe this new lady will care about the rights of the people and their lawfully purchased devices more than that sellout largent. LOL
