USA Customers. As you may have heard, there has been some changes to the law regarding unlocking of cell phones affecting individuals in the USA. As of January 26th, 2013, you will be required to get permission from your carrier to unlock devices that are manufactured from this date onwards for USA phones, phones made BEFORE this date are still 100% okay to unlock. This law can be completely ignored by clients outside of the USA in foreign countries. This is part of the DMCA ruling, more info can be read here:
Due to the recent legislation passed by the Library of Congress for the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), we are forbidden to unlock USA devices that were manufactured on January 26th, 2013 and later. We will not be held liable for unknowingly unlocking a device that was made from this date onwards. It will be the customer’s responsibility to get permission from their carrier if the device they are unlocking was manufactured after 2013.
