US House passes bill to allow consumers to ‘unlock’ cellphones

The U.S. House passed a bill Tuesday that would allow mobile phone users to legally “unlock” cellphones.

The legislation was a result of an online petition submitted to the White House in 2013, sponsors said. It would repeal a 2012 rule that stopped consumers from unlocking their mobile phone so that it can be used by other carriers.

The bill now goes to Senate.
