    I posted this in Android Central where the full article is located, but haven't gotten a response yet, so I thought I'd post it here as well...

    Do I have this correct: If the phone is purchased unsubsidized (off contract) this law doesn't apply to me?

    From what I read, it is still legal to unlock your phone "with the permission of the carrier" - AT&T should still sell you an unlock code. I bought my phone right out, (Lumia 820) and I'm hoping that after the 6 month exclusivity, they should sell me the code. (I'm planning on taking it with me to Australia)

    Save that bill of sale... AT&T will ask for a copy. That makes it almost automatic that you will get the unlock code, especially if you cite foreign travel as the need.

    Sounds like another example of how corporations control our government.

    It is still legal to buy unlocked phones and carries can unlock phones, a user just can't unlocked their locked phone. I think this was done to prevent people from moving over to the significantly cheaper prepaid plans.
