I would welcome the freedom to use my own cellphone as I wish rather than being locked into any particular provider. I am amazed at the really dumb laws that get passed with the apparent goal of protecting some company rather than the consumer! Way to go!

It's about time the cell phone industry is opened up, much like the wired telephone industry ws way back in the 1980s. We should be able to buy any cell phone we want to use with any provider we want. I never understood why in the US, consumers are so often herded into these walled gardens, in the past 30 years or so, and put up with it.
