A locked phone is one that has been programmed to only work with a
specific carrier. If the carrier is subsidizing the price of the phone
by selling it to you below cost or giving it for free they don't want
you to leave and use the phone they just paid for on another network.
As long as you stay with that carrier it makes no difference. An
unlocked phone will work on any compatible network. To unlock a locked
phone you need either some hardware or code - it varies by make and
model. Searching google for "unlock v300" for example, will find you
options for unlocking a Motorola v300.
