The cell phone industry generated an astronomical $118 billion in revenues during 2004. That sum completely dwarfs the budget of a whole lot of countries. In addition, the industry and its myriad employees paid a whopping $63 billion to Uncle Sam. That money was dumped into the US coffers by way of federal, state and local fees and taxes.
Throughout the next few years, this bottomless industry is expected to swell US coffers by a cool $450 billion. Sporting figures like that it’s easy to understand why they have adopted a relentless run and gun attitude in protecting the industry service plans.

Anyway, here you are with your new “locked” free cell phone (or maybe you’ve paid a couple of bucks for it). They generally lock it into their particular network. This done to make you think that you are locked into their particular cell phone service plan. Don’t fall for that!
Most GMS cell phones work on more than one network. Do your own investigations first. Don’t take certain steps and then be left out in the cold. Your friends know. Ask them. That grapevine is oozing with information.
Are you within your legal rights to unlock your cell phone? Even if you got it free or for a few dollars? Each case should stand (or fall) on its own merits. Do your own thorough investigating.
