AT&T cutting off my LG flip phone in 30 days
#31
I'm surprised it's still on YT. It might be more prudent to watch it on LBRY.

I think about this almost every day: I seriously regret enjoying dystoptian future science fiction. It doesn't help that the straight-from-the-twilight-zone "NON-VACCINATED MUST WEAR MASKS" posters all over the place at work keep reminding me.

Now it's late, the gates of hell have opened, define "hell" as you like, but this is exactly the time when the best can demonstrate their value and their potential, enjoy the ride and the descend, when you stare at the abyss, the abyss stares back at you too.....

At least in the U.S., laws and regulations are so complex and convoluted that everyone is a criminal whether they mean to be or not.  See the book "Three Felonies a Day".

I'm well aware of that. There's a difference a mile wide between willingly committing a crime like that and the random crap you're expected to report/deal with every day. You're also tolerating some extreme abuse by your carrier which isn't really acceptable.

WiFi is really a decent wireless alternative in cities and if you're worried about being stranded in the country side you really should have a HAM license out there anyway. Also LORA is improving all the time and will likely make a lot of this irrelevant.

The "crime" of changing the IMEI involves no injured party if not done in attempt to conceal device theft, it is not malum in se. It is merely an arbitrary prohibition - malum prohibitum. I have no moral issue with committing such a "crime" if needed. At this point however the "extreme abuse" from my carrier (blacklisting my Pinephone) has yet to occur, and may or may not occur in the future. As it stands now my Pinephone works on their network without doing anything more than installing an activated SIM.
