Default Unlocked phones... what's the physical difference

Physically, what is the difference between a locked and unlocked phone?
Perhaps I'm under the wrong impression, but I thought that if you had a
T-Mobile phone and wanted to switch to, say, ATTws all you had to do was
get a ATTws SIM card and remove the T-Mobile SIM card.

Thanks,
Curt

There is no physical difference. It is a programming change!

You are correct - as long as the "new" phone is unlocked.
