I coulda swore I knew my stuff when it came to technology but now that i keep hearing cell phones in terms of locked vs. unlocked, i feel like i've been trapped in a cave for a while.

anybody know what the heck that all means?

heh, either a password or new ROM version or something (in phones that support this). you can buy a bunch of unlocked cell phones from online stores. they're full price usually, since they're not part of package deals.

all in the name of profit.

i would add that for the majority of Nokia mobiles, you can actually get the unlock codes for free (just googling is enough). then you simply input the code when the phone asks for it. with some of the newer ones (6680, N90, N70, etc), people still have yet to figure out the codes...
