Unlocking your phone through a carrier officially gets easier today

Cellphone unlocking has come a long way. At the beginning of 2013, it became arguably illegal, when a copyright exemption letting people crack the firmware to use their phone on another carrier expired. Since then, we’ve seen the FCC and Congress take up the case, creating more options for people who want to unlock their own phones or have a carrier do it for them. And today, if you’re looking to do the latter, you can officially expect more options: February 11th is the deadline for carriers to adopt unlocking standards that the CTIA announced in December of 2013.

What did you get (and give) today?

Like this generic stock photo family transfixed by something just off to their left, you’ve probably seen some things today. The gifts are opened. “Adult” egg nog is flowing like water. A wily pet has knocked over the tree. Wrapping paper, ribbon, and miscellaneous holiday detritus litters the floor. You watched the movie. You’ve read up on the apps you need to download immediately. Children (and grown-ups, for that matter) are fiddling with their new drones and waiting impatiently for video game networks to come back online while a gluttonous dinner cooks.

All in all, it was a good day.
