    Technically when you sign up for a two year agreement they still own the phone. That 400-600 dollar discount is just spread out throughout the two year deal.
    Where exactly did you hear that? Because that sounds like something that someone (who doesn't like Apple) just spouted off.

    " It’s a rite of passage to techies the world over: unlocking, or “jailbreaking,” a cell phone to make it usable on networks other than the one to which it was initially attached. But after Saturday, such an act—which can, for instance, make a Verizon iPhone compatible with the T-Mobile network—may be illegal. In October, the Library of Congress invalidated a copyright exemption for unlocking cell phones, but that exemption expires Saturday, leaving the door open to repercussions for such actions. Beginning today, consumers may receive warnings from carriers if they are found unlocking their device. For tech geeks, the word “jailbreak” just got a little more sinister"

    It is also impossible to use a Verizon(or Sprint) phone on a tmobile network. You can use an ATT phone on tmobile as long as its unlocked. Also unlocking and jailbreak a phone is not the same thing. If you just bought an iphone 5 or galaxy s3 I doubt you cell phone company would allow you to unlock the phone.

    Too many what Ifs

    Just restore it before you take it in to the store and your problem will be solved.

    Really a pretty simple fix.

    Anyway, yeah, jailbreaking and unlocking are two different things.

    My GSIII is rooted (the Android version of jailbreaking), which means I can flash custom ROMs and apps onto it and apply various tweaks to the OS itself, to the display, the sound, etc. But it's still locked into the Verizon network, and it would be a pretty different process to change that. I haven't even really seen developers that are working on that, since you can just buy a GSIII unlocked if that's what you want.
