Default Re: Unlocking smartphones after 1/26/13 will be more difficult

I would suggest the carriers wont allow the unlocking because in their minds it will prevent a customer from defecting to another carrier. The cost Verizon and ATT have to give Apple for the I-Phones is somewhere around $200 per phone to keep the cost lower for it's customers. A two year contract does not cover that and other costs to support the smartphones. My bet is they will resist.
