    Unlocking means you will not be locked to your current provider, meaning you
    will be able to use that cell on, let's say a competators network, or even
    over-seas since it is a quadband cell. If you plan to just use it with the
    provider you bought it from, there is little point getting it unlocked.
    Which provider do you use? I would think the V220 didn't come locked in the
    first place.

    Re: I have a Motorola V220.... What does it mean to "unlock" a phone?

    Thanks for the response.
    I use cingular right now. I've used them for the last 4 years or so.

    I find it strange that the V220 has a USB type connector, but no
    software to support it. I have a USB cable from my iRiver MP3 player
    that connects, but I can't seem to find Windows XP drivers or other
    software :-(

    Any thoughts?
