Unlocked: Can switch to any GSM network
Still branded to AT&T (meaning you're reliant on AT&T to release updates)
Unbranded: Can switch to any GSM network
Can download updates as soon as they hit the server regardless of carrier

I just spoke to ATT and was given the unlock code...but I have no idea how to apply it. I tried searching and just got tons of unlocking sites, but no good instructions that I could find.
Is there any benefit to unlocking it if I just plan to stay with Straight Talk (ATT)? I don't currently have any other sim cards.

It really is a shame how annoying it is to switch carriers. And as much as I want to lower my monthly bill, I simply can't give up MMS. I use it all the time. Then again, I'm also not excited about being on Edge until the re-farming is done. Nor am I sure how being on Edge will affect battery life as I assume the phone will still look for a 3G/LTE signal.

The Connection Setup App even has the right data/MMS settings onboard for T-Mo...
