Part of this deal was a request by law enforcement...over the growing number of robberies where your cellphone just disappears and is sold for $40 within an hour. If you can’t unlock the device....it’s really not going to be worth much to most crooks. The criminal profit goes to zero.

Your logic is flawed. Making it illegal to unlock a phone does not mean it can't be unlocked. There is no technology that can't be hacked, period.

What this law does is criminalize law abiding phone owners who have legitimate reasons for wanting to unlock their personal property.

I may want to pass my two year old Iphone down to one of my children and have them use a paygo carrier. Now I've been criminalized for using my OWN property in the way that best benefits me.

The state now requires I use MY property to benefit big business.

I'm sorry, it's time to kick some congressional ass. They continue to sell our personal property rights to big business.

You got that right, over and over and over again they sell us out to big business.
