I hear a lot about unlocking of BB's but im not sure why. Can some one enlighten this noob on why you would want to unlock your phone
If you want to ever take your phone to a different carrier, it needs to be unlocked. If you want to use your phone in different countries with a prepaid sim card, it will need to be unlocked. Also, unlocking increases the value of your phone if you ever want to sell it, since you will have folks from different carriers wanting it.
Just for a quick reference GSM phones have to stay with GSM providers (Tmo, Cingular, etc) and CDMA phones have to stay with CDMA providers (Sprint, Verizon, etc). That is a hardware issue, not an unlocking thing.
