Tell Lawmakers: Legalize Cell Phone Jailbreaking

Under current law, unlocking one's cell phone -- or "jail breaking" -- is classified as a felony offense!

Cell phone owners should be able to use their devices in whatever ways they see fit. After all, the phones are their property.

Strikingly, under current law, unlocking one's cell phone -- or "jail breaking" -- is classified as a felony offense!

A short bill sponsored by Rep. Bob Goodlatte would change this and allow consumers to unlock their mobile devices if they should choose to.

Act now! Add your name below and tell your U.S. Representative and Senators to support the "Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act."

Why must I buy a new phone to change carriers? My carrier is good in state only. Every other carrier in my state is good for the entire USA. Less monthly charge. I like my phone want to keep it and change my carrier without another unnecessary expense.
