I think it might be important to note that rooting is not the same as
unlocking.  I am not sure to be honest, if the Library of Congress knows
how to make this distinction.  Unlocking a phone means giving it the
ability to work on other carriers (ATT phone on another GSM network, Spring
phones on Verizon, etc.)
