    Hey guys,

    I am planning to buy a curve 8310, however I am confused on getting an unlocked one or should go for locked ones provided by the carriers? The unlocked ones are cheaper then the locked ones though!

    That is very unusual. Unlocked phones usually sell for more than a
    locked model.

    Your decision comes down to (A) are you planning to switch
    carriers in the near future and (B) do you travel internationally. If
    you anwsered yes to either, I'd suggest the unlocked phone. If not
    the carrier branded one will fit the bill just fine.

    Thanks amazinglygraceless,

    Yeah somehow in india locked versions are very costly compared to unlocked versions. However, I will go for an unlocked version as I am planning to change my carrier.

    If you ARE planning on changing carriers then yes it makes more sense to go for an unlocked one
