By February 3, 2013

Follow me on:

You may have read something about a new Library of Congress ruling that makes unlocking your smartphone illegal, and that violators may be punished with enormous fines.

This is true as far as it goes, but it's not the entire story. Sam Costello, About.com's Guide to iPhone / iPod, has all the information you need to know about the new ruling. If you are thinking of unlocking your smartphone, Sam's article is a must-read.
