Of course and when people screw around with the OS on their unlocked phone and brick it or mess it up some other way they'll blame the carrier and demand anew phone for free.

This has nothing to do with unlocking your phone. Unlocking allows consumers to use their phone on any carrier that supports the phone.

Even more pointless. You can't bring an unlocked at&t phone to Verizon or a unlocked Verizon phone to at&t even if they supported all bands of LTE. Unless the only thing you wanted to do is use data. Verizon's till uses CDMA for calls and texts and at&t still uses GSM for calls and texts. So you'd need a separate device for those things.

Au contraire. The point of unlocking, for the bulk of users, is so that when they travel internationally, they are not forced to use their carriers exorbitant roaming rates. Unlocking phones would allow users to purchase a simcard and use cheaper roaming charges through a local wireless carrier in the country they are in.
