Comment Re:How do I upgrade? (Score 1) 126

You're using a distribution (Ubuntu) which does not do rolling-release, which means the version that you get when you install is the version that will be until the end of support except for bug fixes (aka no new features). You won't get it in this Ubuntu version. Either switch to a rolling release distro, like Fedora, or wait for the next Ubuntu version. BTW, 14.04 is a Long Term Support version. They keep updating with bug corrections for a long time, but the software itself is very long. You may switch to the normal Ubuntu releases, like the most recent 15.04. Also, you can install the mainline kernel PPA to get just the most recent (but unstable for Ubuntu standards) kernel.

I'm not a USA citizen, but as a Brazilian (country which all kinds of operator locking were ruled *illegal* a few years ago), I seriously recommend you guys to unlock your phones, being it legal or not, you needing it or not. It's a simple matter of having your rights respected.
