    it allows you to use the device on other carriers...
    if you have VZW and want ATT, etc., then get your phone unlocked....

    Unlocking applies only to phones with SIM Cards.

    When a phone is unlocked... say you have ATT
    and your phone was bought at ATT. Now let's say
    You choose to switch to T-Mobile but you love
    your current phone and don't want to switch to
    a T-Mobile phone. You can UNLOCK it so it's no
    longer exclusive to ATT use only.

    You are now able to use that phone for any other
    company that uses SIM Cards.

    There is a similar concept to Verizon/Cricket/Sprint
    phones but it's called FLASHING since they don't
    use SIM Cards.
