i dont know what you are talking about. i dont think you even run a mobile service business. that's why you dont know.
I used to work at a tech place but wasn't in the biz of repairing phones but we could do it and have done some for friends...just wasnt our bread and butter...

I do know and knew about it since last year....tech sites, covered it...

Quote from microkelvin View Post :
thanks to our news coverage. this law has been under nationwide news coverage radar until someone brought it up just a few days before this law kicked in.

yes, it's last month. it was a mistyped. but you got the idea. the law has passed since Nov 2012 but no news covered it until a few days before the final date.
now news covered it? again, it was on tech sites since last year..were you expecting your local news channel or CBS and or ABC to cover it for you?

Quote from microkelvin View Post :
we are not lawyers. so we didnt have to inteprete every single word from that bill to know what we should do. we had to talk to our competitors and friends to confirm some human-understandable terms before we went on with our unlocking business. most of us (mobile business) were surprised about this new law too, not just us. so there is no big deal that we did not know about it.
I wasn't expecting you to understand it like a lawyer does, but you could have at least knew about it...

there is nothing wrong if we didnt know about it. it wasn't on national news.

most of us did not know anything about this until i brought this bill up to them. some of us heard about it but wasn't sure what it was. the rest of us were too blind to see it. when i called my friends and competitors asking for details, most of them didn't even know this bill existed and what needed to be done on our business standpoint.

so i dont see anything wrong with us if our unlocker providers did not provide us any info and what actions needed to be taken. you can blame on me all you want. but on the very last day when i called in ATT to unlock some of our customers phones, ATT unlocking department had no idea what i was talking about when i told him about this new law. Even ATT unlocking department wasn't aware of it or told their employers about it. so i dont see that i missed anything here.

Dude, point is, if you're gonna be running a business of Cellphone repairs, or if i take my own cellphone to get repaired, people expect to have the workers knowledgeable about the mobile tech industry, and not just following some pictured how-to instructions for repairing phones.

I know no one told you, but if you're in the business of repairing phones, the you have to atleast be into that, right? and practically every tech website had this news up, i ran into it SO much for other tech related info...

So basically, if you count on some subscription website, or other services to be telling you about mobile tech news, you're doing it wrong, and shame on you, you should be looking stuff up like this yourself. I would be baffled and would probably laugh (not on purpose) if I took my phone into your store for servicing or repair, and you didn't even know about this law... I shouldn't be more in touch with mobile tech news/info than the guy im paying to fix my mobile tech... shame on you sir shake head

hey, you can call name all you want. but i am not ashame for not knowing about this before. as i said earlier, most of my competitors or friends did not know about this when i asked them. some of them heard about it but did not know exactly what it was and what needed to be done.

i dont know if you read my post earlier. it's not only our cellphone repairs business, even ATT unlock department had no idea what i told them. NO IDEA, let alone "heard" about it.

and you believed what ATT's unlocking dept. innocently told you that they didn't know? EEK!

you probably talked to a tier 1 tech or something but supervisors for sure know about this...

ATT in my mind was responsible for this anyway....they lobbied and got what they want...

Are you high? I can't think of one company where the employees know half what they should about their products. You must live in fantasy land.

national news is always too late when it comes to tech news...

heck, they haven't announced that N4 came out again...or that S3 came out and can be unlocked easily...

selling a product is one thing...repairing a product is another...

the former takes almost no skill....the latter needs a little thinking, if not a whole lot...and certainly gives a company advantage if they knew stuff others don't....

if I take my whizbang gadget for repair, I expect a techie who is knowledgeable in his field. If he is ranting on the interpretation of a law, then obviously he is not a techie I am interested dealing with. I would run out of his shop and deal with only those that could tell me the details of my technical problems. I want him to have his source of repairs including how-to instruction and pictures and provide me with the advice how to best repair my technical problem.
