    As reported on the bbc today Ofcom are considering banning the sale of locked handsets. They quote that this is driven by wanting the supermarkets and network providers to reduce the cost of selling and put money back in the consumer's pockets.

    However this could also have an impact on smaller sellers who are selling handsets at the best price for what they have provided. They are running a consultancy and click here if you want to have your say as part of this click here to visit the Ofcom page.

    I think it's always dangerous to have blanket legislation to solve one problem without considering the SMEs (see credit card charges, made to stop hidden fees from massive corporates but can kill a small business' profit margin)

    Any opinions?
