I think the "lol no" was in reference to the idea that 70k signatures on a petition will change anything.

As if they really have a way of enforcing this.

You can make outrageous laws until your blue in the face, doesn't mean anyone is going to follow them.
post #14 of 281
"Well, we decided unlocking your device is okay for a small period of time. It will be completely okay and have no consequence."

"We now decided that unlocking your device is a heinous crime worthy of harsh prison sentences and insane fines."

And they wonder why the general public can't take such laws seriously. How can they honesty defend saying something is 100% legal, nothing wrong at all, then just decide that after a certain date, it is now a serious offense punishable by long prison sentences. What logic did they use to make such an incredibly huge change? This just shows what this is really about. It's so transparent.

Sickening. Simply sickening.

It's worth a try IMO. We are the people of America.

I see this law valid, only if your contract has not ended (and your phone was included in the contract).

Actually, I don't see how this law can even become valid. Jail time for switching carriers on a contract, is flat out ridiculous. The only thing that should happen is the contract is broken and any fees associated with breaking the contract (as stated in the contract) would apply. How can they prosecute someone further after seeking restitution from the broken contract?

Anything beyond that is simply wasting a courts time with more serious matters.


...Otherwise, if your contract has ended and/or you paid for your phone in full...

How could anyone be prosecuted?

It's your property. They have no say in how it gets used. End of story.

Kill a person, get 5-10 years. Unlock phone get 10 years and 1million fee.
USA land of freedom, my ass.

Yup

I wrote a paper about this subject not that long ago...

Signed it. I think this is well over the bounds of crime=punishment, considering that it wasn't a "crime" as of a week ago. What a joke.mad.gif
