Unlocking is highly beneficial both to phone buyers and sellers because the device goes up in value when it becomes unlocked. This gives the phone owners various choices, wherein they can decide which carrier to use with their phones. Most of the phones sold in the country today are locked devices and there is a petition going on that calls for unlocking to be legalized.
The Obama administration must respond to this call if the signatures of the petition reach one hundred thousand. As of date, there almost 37000 individuals who have signed the petition and many people may still not be aware of this petition and this is why you should take action now if you do not oppose legalization of unlocking.
Just to help you decide, carrier-locked phones are charged with expensive roaming fees for users who use their phones abroad. Furthermore, you can take advantage of some providers' promo plans if your phone is unlocked. So sign the petition now!

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 expected to be released at the end of this month, we aren't suprised at all that Galaxy S3 price has been dropped to $99 with 2 year contract.
It's actually a common practice for cellular carriers, manufacturers and retailers to drop the prices of older devices leading up to a big product launch. This allows them to sell as much inventory as possible to those who would prefer a better deal as opposed to newer device.
So will you buy the low priced Samsung Galaxy S3 or wait for the Galaxy S4, it's only $100 more.
