Unlocking Cell Phones Is Once Again Legal

Posted by at 10:34 am on August 4, 2014

President Barack Obama today signed into law a bill that makes it legal for Americans to unlock their cell phones.

The bill was passed by the Senate and House of Representatives last month. The bill restores a provision in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The provision will be reviewed by the Library of Congress once every three years. Customers will need to meet certain conditions in order to unlock their phones, such as complete their contracts or own their device outright.

Unlocked devices can be used on network operators other than the one who sold the device.
