Allowing it to be used with SIM cards from brands other than the one you purchased it from. If you bought a Rogers phone you would only be able to use it on the Rogers network, but if you got it unlocked you could use it with similar networks (GPRS/EDGE) worldwide with a different SIM card.
what thats tight is it hard to unlock a phone?
You have to enter an unlock code that's specific to your phone and IMEI. If you enter the wrong one x number of times (10 I think) it'll be permanently locked. You can buy unlock codes, but some carriers are very expensive to get unlock codes for.
