SJrX writes: The CBC is reporting that the Federal NDP party has tabled a bill requiring all cellphone companies to provide unlocked cellphones, from the article: "The bill proposes three rules: cellphone carriers would be required to notify customers at the point of purchase whether a phone is locked to work only on their network; they would have to remove such a lock free of charge at any point after the conclusion of the customer's service contract; and they would have to remove it if the customer does not enter into a contract within six months of buying the device up front." The fact that there is a minority government currently should help this bills chances of getting passed.
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves
up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
