Re: Swap SIM cards?

I did say "unlocked phones". However, at AT&T's prices, it won't take international travellers long to pay for an unlocked version. Many of my office associates are Indian and visit once a year for several weeks. One of them even paid full price for an iPhone 5 so they could swap SIM cards.

I thought there were programs that would unlock your phone. I know that's a touchy subject considering the DMCA but I thought in the past couple years (due to be reviewed soon), the Copyright Office allowed exceptions for unlocking phones. Is there a caveat that this is only permitted outside of a term contract?
