    When a company 'locks' their phone they are essentially programming them to only work with Sims issued by their service, by 'unlocking' a phone it can be used with any service provider.

    Also, if you travel internationally... you definitely want to look into unlocking your phone if it is locked... otherwise you may get hit with excessive international roaming fees...

    how can i check if my phone is locked? i have a siemens s66. I would like to buy my friends phone off him which is a motorola A630 but that is for tmobile. If his is locked how would I go about unlocking it. If its unlocked does that mean i simply can put my cingular sim card into it and it will work?
