What does an unlocked phone mean?

An unlocked phone is a phone that you can use with any SIM card from any network carrier in the world. There are many benefits for owning an unlocked cell phone:

  1. With an unlocked phone you have the huge advantage of easily changing your network provider and being able to choose a better plan to suit your needs.
  2. You can save hundreds of dollars when traveling abroad if you have an unlocked phone. Just buy a local SIM card and start making calls at local rates, avoiding roaming charges.
  3. Unlocked phones tend to have higher resale prices than locked phones, and you can easily sell your unlocked device internationally.
