I was wondering if I unlock this phone, is there a benefit? I thought I read once that if I am "locked" to cingular, that my phone will search for cingular towers, even if i'm standing by a t-mobile, or att tower (cingular blue). does unlocking it permit me to access the strongest tower available, or since my sim card is cingular, am i still going to default to cingular towers first.

if it's not going to change anything to unlock the phone, i'm not going to monkey with it. although changing the settings does intrigue me, for sake of curiosity if for no other reason.
