Consumers should be free to choose the phone and service that best fits their needs and their budgets. We need to make sure consumers are getting a fair deal and today's announcement is a welcome step towards implementing consumer-friendly policies in the wireless industry. That's why I'm introducing legislation this week to get rid of the ban on unlocking cell phones and I will continue to work to advance commonsense measures to protect consumers and promote competition.

 

With widening support for the legalization of cellphone unlocking, it's starting to look more and more like the US government will actually do something about it. We'll keep our eye on the progress of Senator Klobuchar's bill and let you know of any major events that happen.
