Admit it, even though you swear you never touch your phone while you are driving, you'd be fibbing a bit. Sure there are laws around the country that fine texting while driving, but South Carolina is trying to make sure their drivers NEVER touch their phones again.

The idea of a kid under 18 having a cell phone always surprises me, but in the world we live in, it's probably a good thing for a teen to have on hand. However, nervous parents who are always waiting around for a reply text will have a new app to try out.

To 'unlock' means to remove the security feature that prevents your phone from being used on other networks and different advocacy groups are calling the new law into question.
If you have flown at all over the last few years, you are very familiar with the announcement about turning off your electronic devices to prepare for departure or landing. Actor Alec Baldwin created quite a scene a while back while on a plane when he refused to stop playing 'Words with Friends' on his smartphone.

Generally, we let our cellphone go to voicemail when we're busy. Not so French daredevil Trancede Melet, who actually took a call while walking a 20 meter gap suspended 1,000 feet in the air. At least he wasn't texting. That would've been crazy dangerous.
