Jailbreaking (iPhone) Made Legal...!



While technically illegal up until now, jailbreaking (cell phone unlocking) mobile devices (namely the iPhone) is common practice among over one million iPhone users. Although not enforced by the law, Apple frowns upon this and voids any warranties against jailbroken phones...
Jailbreaking — the practice of unlocking a phone (and particularly an iPhone) so it can be used on another network and/or run other applications than those approved by Apple — has technically been illegal for years. Most jailbroken phones are used on the U.S. T-Mobile network or on overseas carriers, or are used to run applications that Apple refuses to sell, such as Safari ad-blocking apps, alternate keyboard layouts, or programs that change the interface to the iPhone's SMS system and the way its icons are laid out.
The upshot is that now anyone can jailbreak or otherwise unlock any cell phone without fear of legal penalties, whether you want to install unsupported applications or switch to another cellular carrier. Cell phone companies are of course still free to make it difficult for you to do this — and your warranty will probably still be voided if you do — but at least you won’t be fined or imprisoned if you jailbreak a handset.
This is great news for iPhone owners who are unhappy with the service from AT&T and wish to use a different network, such as Verizon or T-Mobile. Also it opens a new ballpark for any development of third party mobile apps and devices that Apple would normally not approve of....
