I'm afraid to say I'm happy with AT&T. I have no intention to watch it explode.
Unlocking can be attractive even if you're happy with your carrier. When you travel abroad, roaming is expensive. Using a local SIM card from a local company can save you a lot of money. I was with t-Mobile for many years and was very happy with them, yet I asked them to unlock every phone I used and they happily did (that's their policy). When I traveled, I purchased local prepaid SIM cards and used them.

Wish I had done that in Costa Rica last year on my honeymoon. Cingular did not have any service in the area we were staying, but there were 4 Cell towers surrounding our area... Couldn't ever roam on it.

Alternately, you can pick up a cheap cell phone in the country your visiting at the airport and load it with a prepaid SIM. I paid about 60 euros for a small motorola and a prepaid sim with roughly 100 minutes during my trip to Greece last year. I never had to refill, that was more than enough time for calling cabs etc.
