Would be great if we get true unlocking i.e. any phone on any carrier as long as it can access the network.

hope this passes....
they should write a law against locked bootloaders because locked bootloaders interfere with a customers freedom of choice of what Rom they want to run...

There's way too many important issues to focus on over legislation to unlock cell phones.

I always knew you were suspect as hell, but I never knew you worked for Verizon.

Given that Congress can't agree on any of the important issues, let them start with something small and maybe work their way up. Better to pass a bill about unlocking cell phones than spend all their time filibustering routine appointments.
