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

What does unlocking a phone mean? What benefits are there to
"unlocking" my phone?

Thx

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.

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?

Unlocking your phone just removes the SIM card restriction on your phone so that you can use any other network's SIM card.........

Unlocking advantages :
--------------------------------
1.)If you unlock your phone, you can switch to any other network.
2.)If you are traveling abroad, you can use your phone with the local network and do away with roaming charges.
3.)Unlocked phones usually have a higher resale value than phones that are locked.

Using codes you can unlock it ........get the unlock code for your motorola mobile here www.theunlockspot.com/motorola/rs10wp8 , it gives the easy instructions to unlock your mobile at a safe way.......
