FreeYourPhone.org Petition To Make Unlocking, Jailbreaking Exempt From DMCA

This is an online petition to allow owners of mobile phones to do what they want with there phone instead of being bound by the shackles imposed by mobile companies and face legal action by unlocking mobiles to other networks and jailbreaking. The iPhone is a great example by the bluetooth restrictions, locked to single network, ringtones and many other things. so if you're fed up too then sign this petition at -

No, nothing. Ever

It's always worth trying. Would hope it would at least get companies to think about what they do and let us have more freedom with items we purchase.

If you want your phone unlocked buy a sim free handset.
#8
You can have an unlocked phone.
Just buy an unlocked one.
all the best, lad

That's all fine and well but I've got an iphone 3g and this can only be bought on o2. If I had the choice then o2 wouldn't be my first choice of providers. the point of this post is that companies shouldn't be locking handsets to certain networks. France ruled this illegal due to competition laws or something.

Move to france :thumbsup:

dont they lock the phone to their network because they are subsidising the price
#12
i read somewhere that people where travelling to france to buy the iphone as it is illegal over there to lock a phone to one network.

just a quick one ........does anyone know how to unlock a se w810i i want to use an asda sim. thank you
#15
Great ,Lets make all phones have to be unlocked and double the price for every ,Really good idea,
#16
This isn't just about unlocking, If you've jailbroken an iphone you'll more than likely have done it because you want wallpapers, sms tones, ringtones and themes of your own. well this is technically illegal because you're bypassing security measures imposed by apple to do so.

(cue response, Don't buy an iphone then):roll:
#17
Yes and if Apple sold the Iphone without restrictions they would have to double the price to make up for lost revenue where they make money from selling apps etc,Would you really prefer to pay £600 for an Iphone

If all companies were allowed to sell the phone there wouldn't be a need for unlocking is the point I'm trying to make. And if it would cost companies so much why can you now get an unlock code for your phone if you are with vodafone from vodafone? Sadly this is only one company though.
#23
ok so can it unlock all or just a few?
do you have to install anything?
#24
I think you're all confusing SIM or network-locking with app and feature locking. App and feature locking is what this petition is all about, its aim being to persuade manufacturers to make their platforms open, which means you'd be able to get much more cool software for them, since anyone can develop software for an open platform for free, without having to be part of the Apple Dev Club or pay $500 or whatever.

But then, there already are open platforms. Google's Android platform is, as I understand it, completely open. You can even modify the phone's operating system's code. Windows Mobile is open for anyone to develop for, which is largely why I went for an X1 instead of an iPhone. And so can everyone else. Which is, incidentally, the only sort of petition the industry will respond to: if people don't want closed platforms, they'll buy open ones instead. Or, ether way, they'll just not care, and buy whichever has the coolest interface.

Actually, second thoughts, this whole petition doesn't make a sht of difference anyway, since it's just about making Jailbreaking excempt from the DMCA. The DMCA, or the Digital Milennium Copyright Act, is an American law anyway, so it doesn't apply to us.

Because you are still tied into the contract even if you unlock the phone, so they still get their investment back.
