    Unlocking allows you to use a GSM phone from one carrier on another GSM carrier's network. So you can change GSM carriers without having to buy a new phone. You usually have to give a carrier a reason (other than wanting to leave them) for them to give you the unlock codes.

    I left TMO. A month later, a buddy of mine asked me to buy my 8320, but only if I unlocked it. Called TMO, within 24 hours they not only sent me the unlock code, but a step by step guide on how to do it.
