In October 2012, the Librarian of Congress, who determines exemptions to a strict anti-hacking law called the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), decided that unlocking mobile phones would no longer be allowed. But the librarian provided a 90-day window during which people could still buy a phone and unlock it. That window closes on January 26.

Hey, it's not like they are telling you what you can or can not do to your own ....wait a minute.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin

How is it hacking when the service provider gives you the unlock code?

Once your contract is up, you can call your service provider and they will tell you how to unlock your phone. No corporate interests are at risk. They do this willingly.

It gives you superuser permissions for which you can root the device, over clock it, download and run custom ROM's and OS's among other things.

Quote:What Is Unlocking?

Definition of Unlocking

Unlocking is the removal of SIM restrictions on the modem, allowing the use of the iPhone on any carrier. There are 2 types of iPhone unlocks:

software unlock: the iPhone is unlocked by a software
hardware unlock: modification have to be made to the actual hardware to unlock the phone


Quote:What is Jailbreaking?

Definition of Jailbreaking

Jailbreaking is the process by which an iPhone firmware is modified to allow unsigned code to be run to gain access to files that Apple wouldn’t normally let you access. Jailbreaking adds unofficial application installers to your iPhone such as Cydia or Icy (I personally only use Cydia), which let you download many 3rd-party applications previously unavailable through the App Store.
The Second Amendment does not GIVE us the right. It tells the gov they can not infringe our right.
