    Yep, you can still root your phone but you can't (legally) unlock it from your carrier.

    That depends how US gonna execute that law i think it's more of a tool for carriers to hunt down those who switching without finalizing the contract

    If it's as effective as their attempts to stop piracy, people don't have much to worry about.

    I doubt it would stop alot of people anyway.
