    The story was pulled temporarily in order to let Stephen's review get some more traction.

    It's been put back up!

    Does this mean we can't discuss this on the forums?

    Unlocking with third party methods will be illegal.

    The staff will have to look further in to this case, since it certainly is an interesting (and unprecedented) situation.

    However this is US only! Hop off to Canada, unlock your device and Bob's not your uncle.

    The title needs to be changed to

    Unlocking Cellphones becomes illegal in the US on Saturday, just to not confuse people.

    Anyway, this is a stupid rule.

    The title on the FP is correct, but the forum version doesn't automatically update.
