    Now it's on to the full House for a vote. Let's see if Congress can find a way to eff this up since President Obama has already intimated he would sign this legislation. Please, no political commentary.

    There's actually a few countries that require all phones to be unlocked. I hope it happens.

    I can deal with carrier exclusivity as long as they don't disable features that the manufacturers put in. Example, Verizon strangling GPS to make you buy VZ Navigator, AT&T disabling bluetooth DUN & PAN, etc. This legislation needs to get passed so that when you're done with your contract, you're free to do whatever you want with YOUR phone. Please excuse my ranting but I'm Cuban and we don't take kindly with being told what to do by "The Man".

    Do they really (Verizon), disable the GPS over there, that's a disgrace.
