Is it Legal to unlock my phone ?
This is a basic matter of property rights. If you own your own phone, it is your right to switch carriers, install your own software, and call whomever you choose from wherever you want!
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act, introduced an exemption on November 27, 2006 specifically permitting unlocking of cellular devices. The exemption was scheduled to expire on October 27, 2009, but was extended on an interim basis, because the Register of Copyrights had not yet completed its triennial review of DMCA exemptions. In July 2010, the Librarian of Congress extended the DMCA exemption for another 3 years.
In August 2014,
President Barack Obama signed a bill into law that makes unlocking a cell phone definitely legal, making it easier for consumers to take their phones with them when they change wireless operators or travel abroad.
