It's only a matter of time before all phones are unlocked [evil laughter]
[villain delivering speech to tied up heroes]
Time is measured in seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, centuries, aeons. If you look at Earth's history, it was really only "a matter of time" until the dinosaurs died out. But that time wasn't particularly short, was it?
[heroes look at each other, shrug]
No it wasn't. So when the experts say "it's only a matter of time" before all the phones become unlocked, are they right? Will it be in your lifetime? Who can say? Time is a weird thing, after all. It happened before we could measure it, and it will keep on going after we're gone.
[hero raises hand]
Hold your questions, please. So! Act now. Carpe this phone. Grab this unlocked Samsung and use it with any carrier you like. Then, and only then, when "a matter of time" passes, you can start to consider the other options available to you. Ok, what was your question?
HERO: Who are you?
*sigh* I'm no one.
