Re: The Draft of the New Wireless Code

The unlocking rules are nice. Depending on which option they pick, the worst case is providers must allow any device to be unlocked after 30 days of service for a fee specified in the contract. Unfortunately, it doesn't specify what the fee is.

Option #2 would be nice, though. It says that for unsubsidized devices, or when the user's contract is over, the carrier must unlock the phone at any time at no charge.

Not much "regulation" in that thing. Just more industry self-regulating nonsense.

There should be mandatory fines for each breach of each clause. Period. They are giving them too much wiggle room with these open-ended "codes".

Seems the Harper gov is too scared to bring in something with teeth to put into law.

I hope the provinces continue to make their own laws. This is weak and just a bare minimum, if that.
