Multiple Congress representatives support cell phone unlocking and look to submit bills

0. phoneArena 06 Mar 2013, 15:55 posted on

It's refreshing to see that Congress can actually work and get things done. Soon after the White House officially responded to the petition to make unlocking carrier-locked cell phones legal, multiple congressional representatives from the House and the Senate have stepped forward not only to support the initiative, but to submit legislation to put the will of the people into action...

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...

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.
