    the only reason you would unlock your phone is to use it with a another network sim......im not sure of the answer but im pretty sure it would interfere with something
    TMO:MYTOUCH 3G SLIDE
    ROM:SlideMeRoot5r1
    KERNEL:2.6.29-5F8ED14

    All a SIM unlock will do is give you the ability to use a different carrier SIM card with the phone "unlocking" the phone to use with a different carrier. If you use the WiFi calling (hotspot@home) be careful if you think about changing the OS version that you use. f you change the OS version, you will lose TMo's wifi settings for HS@Home. In the network settings (on the pearl, and on my dash, I haven't checked the curve) there is the option to change the network you are using. If you are in an are that is weak for TMO, but good on another carrier, you can switch to the other carrier's network. Just be careful to switch back to the automatic setting, because TMO does measure your time spent roaming, and check your TOS for roaming overages.

    Actually unlocking your curve will have no impact on roaming or wifi or performance at all. It will not interfere with anything.

    The only thing it does is allow you to use any carriers SIM card, as siccmade posted.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i unlocked my 8800 a few months back when I was switching my provider. I didn't have to buy a new phone, and all the functions are working smoothly with my new sim.
