Dangers of unlocking cell phones

Unlocked cell phones can become non-functional, but that only happens under rare circumstances. The iPhone is a good example. When you purchase a new cell phone it may sometimes carry specific services that might not work with an unlocked cell phone. You might need to configure your unlocked phone when changing the carrier in order to use features such as web browsing or multimedia messaging. You might also encounter compatibility problems with foreign phones because of differences in the cellular networks.
