Anyone have any luck unlocking their device since the Bill was signed?
I'm not an at&t customer. I purchased a Padfone X off of Amazon.com LLC for the non contract price of $584.69. I was suprised to find the device locked even though I bought the phone outright. After waiting for the President to sign into law the Unlocking Consumer Choice & Wireless Competition Act on August 1, 2014, I called today to have my device unlocked, only to be quoted their previous requirements on having a device unlocked. The people I talked to hadn't even heard of the Unlocking Consumer Choice & Wireless Competition Act and actually argued that a bill doesn't necessarily become law right after the President signs it ?? I'm not even American and I know this!
