    Allows you to use the phone with other carriers and as the above poster said, there are no disadvantages with it. It doesn't void anything, doesn't remove any functionality. There's only good things to unlocking.

    So would I still be able to use AT&T functions like Cellular Video? And does unlocking the phone increase it's resale value?

    Yes, you could still use all of AT&Ts features and yes, it increases the value of the phone because you can sell it to almost anyone instead of someone who has just AT&T.

    No need. It doesn't install or uninstall anything, you'll be fine.

    Yes, you will still need to delete the Vendor.xls file when upgrading/downgrading to any OS other than the one your carrier has officially released for the model you're using. Unlocking your BlackBerry does not affect this at all.
