This simply should not be the case. It should be legal, easy, and simple for any cell phone owner to unlock (or, preferably, not allow carrier locks on any phone sold in the country)
There should be no reason for carrier locks. The ETF guarantees that the carrier will recoup their subsidy.
I'm all for giving people the power to hack hardware they own and weakening the DMCA, but a "cell phone unlock" exclusion just seems bizarre to me. Why not just prohibit cell phone locks in the first place?--
