S. 517: Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act
Mar 11, 2013 (113th Congress, 2013–2015)
Enacted — Signed by the President on Aug 1, 2014
This bill became the law numbered Pub.L. 113-144
The bill would allow consumers to use their mobile devices with any wireless carrier. It also expands the right to unlock devices from mobile phones to all wireless devices. Unlocking mobile devices would allow consumers to choose their wireless service provider and would prevent wireless providers from restricting mobile phones to operating only on certain networks.
