Unlocking... allows the phone to be used on another carriers network. Unlocking costs carriers money (loss of a customer by the old carrier and loss of a cellphone sale by the new carrier) that is why they (all carriers) lobbied to make unlocking illegal. What the carriers want is that your cellphone be used solely by one service provider (ATT, Verizon etc.) and not be interchangeable.
