    "unlocking"

    I know this is a total n00b question, but what does the term "unlocking" mean when it comes to cell phones?

    do you Google ? :}

    unlocking is at least 2 things;

    1) some carriers "lock" the phone so applications can not be installed.. un-locking provides the ability to install 3rd party apps. (rather simple with the right software)
    2) un-lock to use device on other carriers (a usually more involved process)
