Investigation of consumer claims involving cell phone service carriers that sell mobile phones that are "locked." Locked cell phones contain software that prevents the owner from taking their phone to a different service carrier. Individuals that unknowingly purchase locked cell phones are then required to purchase a new cell phone if they choose to change cell phone service carriers.
