    When phone is locked, you can now switch between providers. For example if you have AT&T locked phone, you can not use this phone with other provider, only with AT&T

    That's not 100% the same thing. You can get a GSM phone unlocked so it will work on another carrier, but it still can have some of the features disabled due to the original carrier's preferences.
