    I am on a Canadian carrier and wondering what will the unlocking option give me extra? If i do unlock my phone does this mean when i go to the states i will no longer pay a roaming fee? Or is this only to be able to re sell your phone ?

    Just can't seem to get a straight answer that is why i am asking.

    If you UNLOCK your phone you can put another carriers SIM in it, so you can switch from Rogers to Bell to Telus.

    Unlocking just unrestricts it to one carrier. I have an unlocked 9700 and can use it overseas with another companys sim card, which is what I usually do i the middle east. If you come to the states, you can get an ATT sim card and use the phone.

    EDIT******* looks like this got answered as I was typing.

    Unlocking your phone will not change the roaming charges if you continue using
    your present SIM card while in the states.

    What most people do is purchase a pre-paid SIM in their destination of travel
    and use that service instead.

    Yes no more roaming fees, but this will require you to buy a local sim card.

    You can pick up a local sim in all cellphone stores. In some asian countries, you can even pick them up in a 7/11 convenience store!

    No but when you get to the USA, just grab a local prepaid SIM card..and give the US number to you friends back home..(let them pay LD to call you )

    It's IMEI Base so any carrier works
