I’ve always believed that if the carriers never subsidized handsets, thus no contracts, it would force the manufactures to eventually lower prices to be competitive. Not really, They do  subsidize phones in Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Hongkong, Singapore and etc…. A big part of the problem is the huge upfront cost to carriers to buy spectrum and get in the game. The province is addressing Nova Scotians' concerns about cellphone contracts with changes announced today, Feb.
Many Nova Scotians told us they felt trapped by their cellphone contracts, which is why we took action and passed this legislation. Cellphone companies must provide more information about minimum monthly costs and include it in advertising. Providers will not be able to change major parts of a contract, including services, costs, fees or locations where the phone can be used, without consumers' permission.
Nova Scotians who are unhappy with their service and decide to change providers could pay as little as $50 to cancel contracts.
The amendments only apply to consumer contracts signed after the regulations come into effect May 1. Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations Minister John MacDonell says people now have to be told in clear, plain language what is included in contracts and the act addresses contract changes. Jonathan Williams, executive director of Students Nova Scotia says this is positive legislation, especially for students. Ontario is taking steps to ensure that consumers are provided with clear information and fewer surprises when they enter into cell phone and wireless services contracts. The province intends to introduce legislation that would make it easier to understand the costs and terms of wireless services contracts. The legislation would also ensure wireless services providers are clear with information before contracts are signed.


Opinion: Do services really have the kind of revenue potential Apple would like us to believe?
The White House announced today that President Obama is signing the Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act in law allowing consumers to unlock cell phones from their carriers at the end of a contract. The legislation allowing consumers to legally unlock a cell phone first passed the Senate on July 16th, then received approval again from the House of Representatives on July 25th before moving to the President’s desk today. I applaud Members of Congress for passing the Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act.
About time that worthless bum got something done other then complain about the Republicans. But you go ahead and ignore those and enjoy your unlocked phone, which btw was always legal for individuals.
And yet you’d be complaining and saying he should go through Congress if he signed more executive orders, wouldn’t you? That is the CRTC though, provincial legislation protecting consumers is at least a step in the right direction. We're making sure Nova Scotians have access to clear and fair cellphone contracts that they can cancel at any time without huge penalties. They depend on cellphones as their primary means to stay connected with family, friends and employers.
MacDonell says the legislation is about consumers, and having it effective May 1 gives them time to learn what it means.
If you pay for the phone, you shouldn’t have to be a slave to a carrier if you choose to leave. It was illegal for non-carriers to unlock the devices, and carriers were always obligated to unlock the device once you met your contracted obligation.


The Consumer Protection Act regulates cellphone contracts and protects consumers who enter into, or renew, contracts beginning May 1. These changes will definitely help protect university and college students from unclear and unfair contracts. The Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services say the number of complaints about cell contracts has tripled over the past four years.
We laid out steps the FCC, industry, and Congress should take to ensure copyright law does not undermine wireless competition, and worked with wireless carriers to reach a voluntary agreement that helps restore this basic consumer freedom. This law only expanded the ability to unlock in mass to company’s so they can re-sell devices. The only locked phones are the ones subsidised by prepaid services, and then they are all unlockable with a moderate fee or free to unlock after a period of time.
The bill Congress passed today is another step toward giving ordinary Americans more flexibility and choice, so that they can find a cell phone carrier that meets their needs and their budget.
And let’s not forget about his blind support and increases aid of foreign governments when we are still recovering from a recession.
I commend Chairmen Leahy and Goodlatte, and Ranking Members Grassley and Conyers for their leadership on this important consumer issue and look forward to signing this bill into law. There’s also the lack of accountability for those that caused the recession in the first place.
