More on the fight to be able to unlock your Cell Phone!

Klobuchar, Unlock, Cell Phone

Democratic Senator in Minnesota, Amy Klobuchar, announced that she will be introducing legislation to reverse the ban that was imposed in January.

Although the actual text of the bill was not released, a press release on Kolbuchar’s website briefly described the reasoning behind the bill.

“We need to make sure consumers are getting a fair deal and today’s announcement is a welcome step towards implementing

consumer-friendly policies in the wireless industry,” “That’s why I’m introducing legislation this week to get rid of the ban on

unlocking cell phones and I will continue to work to advance commonsense measures to protect consumers and promote

competition.” Klobuchar said in a statement.

Dealing with cellphone legislation before, Klobuchar sponsored a bill called the Cell Phone Consumer Empowerment Act of 2007.  This bill wanted to require “greater disclosure to, and empowerment of, consumers who have entered into a contract for cellular telephone service.”  Unfortunately, the bill died in committee.

Unlocking you cell phone would allow you to use your phone on other carriers than the one form which you purchased the phone.  Recently, the ruling is that consumers may not unlock their phone without permission from the carrier.
