    You would only need to unlock your phone in the States if you wanted to use ATT OR TMOBILE, it adds value if you wanted to sell it also

    Your phone is a world phone so it has a GSM slot for a sim card, when unlocked you can put ATT or TMO stateside, but you wont get 3G data on edge

    Additionally, unlocking your phone lets you purchase SIMs from foreign carriers so, when traveling internationally, you don't have to pay VZW's insane rates.

    As mentioned above and also higher resale value if you decide to sell the phone one day.
