    Was just wondering what good it did to have your phone unlocked?

    For you on Verizon? You can use it out of country...
    There's no "advantage" if your not leaving the USA.

    Forgot to tell you that Verizon will unlock it for you for free....

    yeah, there is really no benefit to unlock if you use verizon domestically and don't travel

    Some people have it unlocked to use on a GSM carrier domestically.

    You don't have an apple product, where they restrict half the functionality of the device you pay $1000 a year for.

    Freedom of device use: There's a 49.99 app for that!

    Flame on!

    I think its because most services companies give out for free to get you to buy their product Apples sells. Like having the BT disabled in a Ipod touch for a year and then selling it as a $10 upgrade later on because you were never promised BT connectivity.

    All of their systems are closed in and they aren't one to develop "free" stuff. I don't like their business model but it isn't necessarily wrong or bad. I would personally rather buy my stuff from companies that want to win me over to be a customer then a company that pities me for not buying their product.
