    An unlocked phone is a phone that can be used on other networks, besides the one it was originally for. For example, an AT&T phone on T-Mobile would be unlocked. Unlocking usually only is possible on GSM (SIM card) devices but there are a few exceptions to the rule such as the Verizon Storm which is CDMA, but also has a SIM card slot that can be unlocked for use in the U.S. The advantage is to be able to use it freely on any network in any country and also helps in case you want to use a phone on a certain network, even if that network doesn't have it yet. Hope this helps!

    Its also very helpful to have an unlocked phone when you go traveling to other countries. You can just slip another SIM card in and it can save you a bundle on extra fees.
