That's right, the White House has just issued its official response to the petition calling for President Barack Obama to legalize the practice of unlocking cellular phones in the U.S..

In short, it looks like the administration agrees wholeheartedly! The author of the letter is R. David Edelman, Senior Advisor for Internet, Innovation and Privacy. Here's a summary of what he said:

It's Time to Legalize Cell Phone Unlocking.

"The White House agrees with the 114,000+ of you who believe that consumers should be able to unlock their cell phones without risking criminal or other penalties," Edelman writes.

"The Obama Administration would support a range of approaches to addressing this issue, including narrow legislative fixes in the telecommunications space that make it clear: neither criminal law nor technological locks should prevent consumers from switching carriers when they are no longer bound by a service agreement or other obligation."

So, while we're not going to see immediate change, it appears that a chain of events is now in motion in which the FCC and Congress will potentially play a huge role.
