Is unlocking a phone legal?

Many people have this question in their mind when they go for unlocking their device. There have been many disputes in the past but in the current time it is totally OK and legal to unlock your device in USA.

Once your contract with your service provider’s term is over, no service provider can deny your request to unlock your phone. In August of 2014, President Obama signed Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act hence making it legal to unlock your phone USA.

  • Hello Aatish,
    Can it work in India for Reliance CDMA (Model: HTC Desire 826),

    it is locked to be used with CDMA only, my brother was using it and now he went abroad for his studies where this phone was of no use.

    Please do let me know, or it only works with Samsung phone.

    PS: One more doubt, My brother is in UK now and there as well he had purchased Locked phone, can it be done as well?

    Back to you,
    Best Regards.

      As I saw they don’t support reliance phones but as you say the phone is of HTC, I would suggest you contact them via their website and ask the same please.

      Yes, why not, if it is legal to unlock phones in UK, then he should do it using mentioned websites. If it is not legal there, I won’t recommend doing it.

      Thanks, Sandeep.
