Re: unlocking phone and web broswer clash
You don't unlock to a carrier. You unlock from a carrier. If you unlock an at&t 8800 it can be used on any GSM carrier -- not just TMO.
The only thing that unlocking does is enable you to use other carrier's SIM's in your GSM device. Nothing else. Unlocking does not alter your service books (see below for more info).
When your BB registers itself on a carrier's wireless network service books are pushed to your BB automatically (assuming you have a BB data plan with that carrier). These service books configure your web browser, email, and a number of other things. None of that has anything to do with the subsidy lock. Each carrier has its own set of service books. The service books currently loaded on your BB determine whether or not your BB will work on that carrier's network.
The BB data plan works the same whether your device is locked or unlocked. Whatever SIM you have loaded in the unlocked BB will effectively determine which carrier's service books are loaded and those service books enable your ability to browse the web and email.
