    why is that a benefit? Doesn't that add roaming charges or is it "off the books?" Not being a wise-***, just don't, if there is something I can read about this I will not bother you with questions until I have the basic knowledge already.

    You could put a different sim card in if you travel or you can simply increase the resell value of your BB. I believe unlocked ones are worth more.
