What would be the advantages of this? What does unlocking do?
Please do a search. This has been covered time and time again.
Basically, an unlocked phone will allow you to use the phone with any GSM carrier around the world. Within the US, it will also let you use your phone with T-Mobile (if you're okay with edge data of course). Other than that, it also has a higher resale value than a carrier locked phone.
Unlocking a GSM phone will allow you use your device on other carriers. In the US your only option would be T-Mobile, but overseas you will have plenty of other options.
This is good for someone who travels a lot, you can avoid expensive bills from your carrier for using your phone abroad.
So that the phone can be used on other GSM carriers.
If you dont plan on using it on Tmobile or use it while out of the country with other carriers sims then you probably dont need it.
