Chile Bans Locked Phone Sales As Of January 14
The Government of Chile was brave enough to come up with a decision that will probably make many of us wish the same thing would happen in our own country. Starting January 16, no phone sold in Chile will be network locked.
Carriers might not put up a wide smile but users definitely will. Every phone sold in Chile after the aforementioned date shall be unlocked. Devices purchased earlier will be unlocked with the help of a website where the owner needs to input the IMEI of the device. Would you be in favor of such an extreme measure as banning locked phone sales in your own country or would you prefer a milder approach, such as unlocking by request with no questions asked?
