Re: Super Podcast Action Committee - Episode 60

Zachary, I think you got some terminology confused.

Unlocking, freeing a phone from it's carrier (moving a phone form At&t to Verizon). It is illegal to unlock your phone without a carriers permission since the Librarian of Congress repealed the exception to the DMCA. Doing it can actually land to in prison for something like 5 years, that is unless Obama, some members of congress, and the new FCC Chairman get their way and make the exception permanent. 

Jailbreaking (sometimes called rooting), getting the phone to run software not sanctioned by Apple etc and access to the file system etc. Is legal for phones, but not tablets again cause of the Librarian of Congress and the arbitrary nature of DMCA exceptions.
