    Unlocking a phone makes it possible to use it on another GSM
    carriers network (Must use SIM card)

    Reasons:
    1) If you wish to change carrier but not the phone.

    2) If you travel internationally, you can buy a prepaid SIM card
    in your destination and thereby avoid international roaming costs

    3) If you decide to sell your phone it can potentially increase
    the price you ask for and lastly it will increase your pool of
    potential customers as any GSM user would be able to buy it
    even if their carrier is different than yours.

    You having an 8330 and being with VZW, however, cannot do any of what I just
    typed as your carrier is CDMA (don't use SIM cards)

    The Storm will also be a VZW device and therefore CDMA, so unlocking
    it won't be possible.
