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.

Hi, welcome to the human population, we've done this a few billion times throughout our history.

this is what happens when you spoil the carriers by buying contract phones. don't know why americans loves contract and locked phones so much.
post #118 of 281

Last I checked even though I bought the phone at a discounted price I wasn't leasing the phone itself, so therefore I own my phone and can do whatever that I please. Granted that means since I'm using their service and if they don't like what I do with it then they don't have to give me service, but there would be other carriers happy to have me switch over.

 

You were always able to mod your xbox's completely legal, but if you would try to get on xbox live they would "nuke" your xbox, I've seen it happen to my friend mellowsmiley.gif

 

You've always been able to do with your hardware as you please but that doesn't mean the company you bought it from will support nor should they, but to make it illegal is bad and could set a very bad string of events.

 

As long as it's not in the my Verizon contract that I am actually leasing the phone, then I will do with it as I please. If they want to send me to jail and give me a 1 million dollar fine and essentially ruin my entire life for unlocking a device then so be it (I know it sounds like I wouldn't care but I'd be devastated).

 

Still blows my mind that they would ruin someones life over something of the sort.

 

Edit: Or am I at this point...

Because for the most part, the non-contract plans and the contract plans are the exact same price, so which would make more financial sense? 2 year contract while paying $200 for a phone and a $99/month plan, or no contract while paying $600 for the same phone with the same $99/month plan?

It's crap, and carriers should offer discounts for people who bring their own phones or are out of contract. But they don't.
