Cellphone companies are stretching the letter of the law.
You bought it. You met your contractual obligation. You should be able to do with it as you wish. One more example of how politicians are bought with corporate money.
Another money grab (like the recent ruling allowing cable companies to encrypt previously open local broadcast channels, obsoleting many TV tuners). And it makes us criminals for attempting to use a product we own in a manner of our choosing.
Copy Right Laws are just like patents. It costs lots of money to build new things and the law is there to protect the builders for 17 years. After that, all can grab for it. I like the way it is and as for Los Angeles, stop weeping. If you signed the contract, then live with it.
