UPDATE: Could Cell Phone Unlocking be Legal Again in the US?

Whitehouse in favor of legalizing unlocking

Just when everyone thought it was now illegal to unlock cell phones (for purchased phones after January 26, 2013), President Obama spoke on March 4, 2013 saying that he will push to reverse the new law (for users that are not currently in a contract). It seems a petition of over 100,000 made it to the Whitehouse protesting the ban.

What does the petition state?

Basically it states that consumers should be able to unlock cell phones (and tablets) they own, without risking penalties or criminal persecution. And if the device is no longer under a service contract, people should be free to move to other carriers. Seems reasonable enough.

View and/or participate in the We the People petition

Per our original post Is Jailbreaking Legal the law was passed back in October 2012, effective in January 2013 in the United States. The Library of Congress had a 90 day window in the bill for those already with a cell phone that they would be able to unlock them within that time period.

What that means for Unlocking Services

Recently a few service providers were unable or willing to offer unlocking services for phones purchased after the January date without the carrier’s permission, so this is an important step to reversing this decision.

What exactly is up for a repeal?

  • That unlocking a phone after a contract period is legal and not subject to criminal or penalties.
  • Tablets should be included as they are similar to cell phones and plans (currently tablets aren’t included in the law).

Currently the Library of Congress and FCC have issued statements backing the legal unlocking and urging Congress to overturn the ruling, according to the New York Times. However, Time reports that Congress will likely need to change the federal copyright law to override the ban on unlocking.

Who would this affect?

  • People that have phones out of contract.
  • People that receive phones as gifts that are no longer in a contract.
  • People buying older phones out of a contract.
  • People that have donated phones to organizations.
  • People with tablet devices.

Jailbreaking vs. Unlocking

Until a repeal in the law in the United States, Jailbreaking is still legal. View the FAQ about unlocking vs. jailbreaking.

Jailbreak iPad, iPad 2, iPad 3 – Learn More

Jailbreaking an iPad is similar to doing so on an iPhone, which that gains access to those areas of an iPad that Factory shipped iPads don’t have access to.

The term Jailbreaking refers to breaking devices “out of jail” to release functionality. Generally it is used to obtain cool programs and applications. Jailbreaking permits root access to the iOS operating system allowing the download of additional applications, themes and extensions that are unavailable through the official Apple App Store. It does so by adding an application called Cydia to the device. View our FAQ for more information.

A Jailbroken iPad can usually still use the Apple Store and perform other normal functions.

If you want to download some cool apps and are planning to jailbreak your iPad, and also unlock it, you can also use it with any carrier and SIM card and just need to be wifi enabled (see our page on Is it Legal as there have been some changes to the law in the U.S). After the process of jailbreaking your iPad is completed, the icon of the Cydia store will appear on the home screen. Here are list of ten popular apps.

Once your iPad is officially jailbroken you can download any extensions across the web. There are many ways to get your iPad Jailbroken, here are 3 Top Services.

After you have successfully Jailbroken your iPad, you can still buy and download apps normally from the official app store. Apple will void its warranty, but a good old restore of factory settings should get you the warranty back, perhaps without any trace.

Another great feature is that once this is done you can also use your wifi as a hotspot for all your other devices as well. It will not affect your already existing gadget’s apps. Also, reports of system instability or other problems are almost nonexistent.

Jailbreaking the iPhone is still legal in the United States under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. However, the same case might not hold true for the iPad if purchased after January 23, 2013. According to the U.S. Copyright Office, the act of jailbreaking a mobile phone does not violate any copyright laws. However the ruling does not apply to tablets, including the iPads. It is so because, according to U.S. copyright office, tablets are difficult to define.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, along with a couple of other electronic freedom organizations are appealing to the copyright office to make exemptions and legalizing the customization of your devices.

The most basic difference between unlocking and jailbreaking is that jailbreaking is about controlling the software you can install on your device whereas unlocking allows you to choose what mobile phone carrier the device will work with. Unlocking will allow you to insert other carrier SIM cards while jailbreaking will allow you to go for unofficial software and apps in your device.

Whether you need to unlock or jailbreak depends on what you want to achieve.

Is Jailbreaking Legal?

Jailbreak iPhone
iOS Jailbreaking is a process which involves getting rid of the software limitations set on devices which run the iOS operating system.

The intent is to get root access which allows the user to download and install applications that are available outside of the Apple App Store.

While Jailbreaking might sound criminal, it has been legal (in the U.S.) since the year 2010 when an exemption was made to the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) law allowing users to jailbreak their iOS devices and subsequently use applications which were not provided by Apple.

This made Jailbreaking Apple’s smart phones legal in the United States. Apple now has a policy that states that Jailbreaking any mobile device of theirs will void the warranty.

Effective January 26, 2013 the DMCA rules were revised and renewed after a period of three years. In October 2012, the Copyright Office still approved exemptions to the DMCA rules which allowed iPhone users to jailbreak their devices and continue using Apps which were not approved or provided by the Apple App Store.

However, this exemption is not available for tablet computers and in this case the iPad. It should therefore be noted that while it is legal to remove the software limitations on an iPhone and iPod, it is illegal to do so with an iPad – for devices purchased after 1/23/13.

The Electronic Frontier foundation which advocates for digital rights was hoping that an exemption would be made to the DMCA to allow Jailbreaking on Tablet computers but hope of such freedom has wait until the DMCA rules are renewed again in another three years (2015).

Even though tablet sales are increasing at an enormous pace, they are not as popular as smart phones. The Electronic Frontier foundation hopes that an exemption will be made in the next three years to allow Jailbreaking on the iPad again, at which time the tablets will be as common and popular.

Jailbreaking vs. Unlocking – Not the Same

It should be noted that Jailbreaking is not the same thing as unlocking. While Jailbreaking involves getting rid of software restrictions, unlocking involves the removal of SIM restrictions and hence making it possible to use your device on different carriers (like Verizon, AT&T, etc.). View 3 Jailbreak Options Here.

Unlocking makes it hard for your network carrier to track your phone in case it is stolen since anyone can do whatever they want with it. However, you might realize that you need to unlock the phone in situations where you need to use a service which is not provided by your carrier.

The law allows you to unlock iPhones which were purchased before January 23, 2013, but now illegal to unlock any device purchased after that date. View our FAQ for more information

It is important to keep abreast with information on Jailbreaking. Although it looks like you can Jailbreak Apple’s iPhones for the next three years, Apple is not happy about it. The company has already started to prevent unlocking on some phones for some services. Apart from the iPhone, you are also free to jailbreak your iPod Touch.

For the laws in countries outside of the United States, please refer to the laws that pertain to the Country you reside in.

Please Note: We are not attorneys and are not giving legal advice here. This post is an opinion from information we’ve found online from various sources, and could change at any time. You should do your own due diligence prior to Jailbreaking your iPhone, iPod, and iPad, and understand the risks involved, both legally and for the functionality of your iOS device.

How to Jailbreak an iPod Touch

If you want to increase the features and functions of your iPod Touch then Jailbreaking (FAQ) is a way that you can unleash much more functionality than in its original form. Using this technique, software is installed on your computer which will then be transferred to your iPod that will allow access to the system files to make it customizable.

Why would you want to Jailbreak your iPod?

Jailbreaking allows you to use the device in a customized manner like installing third party applications available on Cydia like Dtunes, SB Settings, themes, etc. Check out a few of the top apps here. You’ll be surprised about how many apps there are that you might have even not thought of.

There are certain things you’ll need to know if you decide to take the plunge into Jailbreaking. Once you’ve successfully done so, you will have to manage the iPod yourself as after doing so your warranty from Apple and the original carrier if you have one, gets null and void. If you have any issues moving forward, you will be on your own, and won’t get any help directly. However, there are a lot of people that have done Jailbreaking. There are forums available and some of the services offered to help you have 24/7 support as well (and they guarantee success). In the absolute worst case scenario, the applications used to Jailbreak are unauthorized which can damage the complete system of your device if not done correctly.

There are numerous third party applications that can help. Here’s a review of 3 of them here.

How to Jailbreak your iPod

In general though, these are the basic steps:

  1. Check that you have the most current version of iTunes on your computer (General, settings, about in most versions), install any if needed.
  2. Sync your iPod with iTunes as a backup (and also backup your iTunes once this is done).
  3. At this point we recommend you get help from a service provider. However, there are DIY options if you’re comfortable with that.

  4. Download the recommended jailbreak software compatible to Windows or the Mac and save it in a folder, per the instructions (review companies here).
  5. Unzip the file by double clicking on the folder to extract the application and launch it on your iPod.
  6. Click on the Jailbreak button after launching the application by running it as Administrator.
  7. A prompt will appear to connect your iOS iPod Touch to the computer and switch the iPod off.
  8. Following the instructions on your computer Click the Next button to go to the next screen.
  9. Set the iPod touch to DFU mode.
  10. Hold the Home button after turning on the iPod until the software detects the device.
  11. Release the Home button as your iPod starts rebooting.
  12. You will be prompted to select an option (i.e. Cydia). Then go to Next to reboot the device and the software will upload the kernel and RAM disk.
  13. You can exit from the software application on your computer after completing the process on your iPod.
  14. Reboot the iPod again and now you should be able to upload apps of your choice to your device.

Again, we highly recommend you work with a service before trying this yourself. Also, always check your local laws regarding the legality of Jailbreaking or Unlocking your iPod.

Here are the 3 ways for getting your phone unlocked:

Option 1: Free “Do It Yourself” Option

There are many apps and software on the web that you can use to unlock your iPhone freely. Two popular ones are Absinthe and Redsn0w, and each one works according to the device that you have. Both are free. If you are technically inclined and are comfortable troubleshooting, these are both good options. There are many blog posts on the internet that will take you through the steps of using both of these. The only downside to this option is if you run into problems you’ll have to rely on information you can find online.

Personally, I would feel more comfortable with a guarantee and knowing there was support available if I needed it. If you share this view you might be interested in the next option.
Free lifetime updates

Option 2: Paid Jailbreaking and Unlocking Services

For a very minimal fee, using a paid service allows you to jailbreak an iPhone, iPod or iPad without much hassle at all. The added benefit is that these companies often provide money back guarantees, they claim they are fully reversible and include support. Since the jailbreaking software is often free, what you’re paying for is the support and instructions they give you during the process and troubleshooting help. Some of them even include the jailbreak for your iPad and iPod Touch free. Review 3 Options Here

How to Jailbreak your iPhone — Get It Now

Option 3: Done for You Jailbreaking Service

There are services and local businesses (check craigslist) that provide Jailbreaking services. You can take your phone in, or others will remote connect to your computer and perform the upgrade directly.

Disclaimer: Before selecting a company if you don’t plan on performing the jailbreak on your iPhone yourself. Be sure you are 100% comfortable with your provider. After all, these are not inexpensive phones, and often you are stuck under contract with the phone. Also be sure that the benefits outweigh the risks of voiding any possible warranties and making your phone unusable.

Important: If you are in the U.S. and purchased a subsidized phone at a discount through your carrier after January 23, 2013, it is now illegal to unlock your iPhone without your carriers permission. If you purchased your phone prior to January 23, 2013 the prior law pertains to you, it is still legal.

Jailbreak 4.3 (iOS 4.2, 4.1, 4.0) – An Intro to Unlocking your iPhone

Nothing signifies the hi-tech times we live in, more than the iPhone does. A revolutionary product, iPhone had buyers scurrying to get one each time a new version of it was launched. With the launch of the iPhone 5 now, iPhone 4 is being doled out by Apple and service providers at much lower prices than earlier. So now, there is a rush for the very beautiful design and features that iPhone 4 attracts its buyers with even now. Installing Jailbreak 4.3 can unlock features and apps that your iPhone doesn’t currently have.

Apple Unlocker

Buyers in the USA (view recent legal changes) especially get this phone at very low rates, but the phone comes tagged with a contract from the mobile carrier. The contract indicates how the carrier capitalizes on the consumer’s love for this product. You’ll see that the carrier usually hikes up the network rates for this instrument in the contract.

Thus the consumer is left with a product that he loves to use yet has to clear hefty bills from the service provider to keep it. The only way to keep the iPhone 4 then, without having to renew or continue a contract with the same carrier would be to unlock it.

Similarly, some may have bought the phone from the country of availability and brought it with them to their native country. They will not be able to use it in their country without unlocking it first.

This is where Jailbreak 4.3 for the iPhone comes in.

Jailbreaking is software that helps you unlock your iPhone 4 so that you can enjoy it independent of which network you are using it with and the country where you want to use it. Moreover, many of the very interesting apps that iPhone 4 boasts of do not come for free (even when they can be downloaded for free from the Web). After unlocking the phone with jailbreak, you can download and use many such apps without being asked to pay.

iPhone and Jailbreak 4.3 Software: Lock and Key

During manufacture, Apple installs a software component on its iPhones that does not allow SIMs other than that of the carrier to operate with that iPhone. This ensures that the carrier that has bought the iPhone from Apple has a dedicated instrument/customer for its network. Jailbreak 4.3 for the iPhone enables this “lock” component of the phone’s operating system to be “unlocked”. Jailbreak software undoes the lock for all the versions, including the latest iOS 6.0.1.

Jailbreak 4.3 for the iPhone: Not DIY Anymore!

Until now, Jailbreak for the iPhone was easily installed and used to safely unlock by users themselves, with clear and easy step-by-step instructions. But with the new generation of iPhones that come with the A5 chipset hardware, Apple has taken steps to hinder jailbreaking. It’s become more difficult to safely jailbreak your iPhone 4. Unless expertly installed and used today, Jailbreak for iPhone 4 can make your phone temporarily or even permanently unusable. It can also void your warranty, so you want to do this at your own risk!

Because of this, we would recommend that you use a service that helps with the jailbreaking of your iPhone. Most of them also provide guarantees and support to guide you through the process. Review 3 Options Here. For a nominal fee, you can enhance your enjoyment of your new and unlocked iPhone 4.
