I thought unlocking a phone was no longer legal?

Its your property, you can do what you want with it. Downloading content for free and breaking copyright laws is a different story on the other hand.

I don't think jailbreaking is the same as unlocking. Unlocking means you're free to activate it on another carrier. Like Tmobile/ATT or Verizon/Sprint.

Apple checks apps for compliance with its iOS Developer Program License Agreement before accepting them for distribution in the App Store. Jailbreaking permits downloading of programs not approved by Apple.

Since software programs available through Cydia are not required to adhere to App Store guidelines, many of them are not typical self-contained apps but instead are extensions and customizations for iOS and other apps. Users install these programs for purposes including personalization and customization of the interface, adding desired features and fixing annoyances, and making development work on the device easier by providing access to the filesystem and command-line tools."

This is my major beef with Apple. You shouldn't have to do this.

Non carrier unlocking has been made illegal. Jailbreak is legal. They are two different things.

You can still get your unlock code if you call your carrier and ask nicely. Or search XDA forms and do it yourself.

x2.



cliffnotes:

jailbreaking is legal = you can add apps that apple did not approve to be used on the iphone (the good apps)

unlocking is illegal = you can use a phone supplied by carrier #1, modify the software so you can use it on carrier #2

Yeah, made illegal by a librarian.

Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), the Librarian of Congress (LoC) has the right to decide which types of devices users can legally modify without their manufacturers' permission. In the fall, the LoC decided that making significant changes to the operating system of a tablet is not to be permitted.

Top ones I can think of...

Gridlock
Auxo
CameraTweak
biteSMS
MyWi or PDANet
Activator
Fakeclockup
swipeshiftcaret

And then there are the millions of themes you can use with several themeing apps. And there are TONS of other small tweaks that you can install that just make some things easier like mark-all adds a button in the stock email program for marking all email as read, changing what the LED does for text and email and facebook notifications and things like adjusting the size of the app icons so you can fit more or get an extra icon on the dock. Or make it so you can put as many apps in a folder as you want.
