If you aren't planning on switching carriers, than the only real advantage to an unlocked phone is for traveling. You can go to anywhere GSM is used and buy a prepaid SIM from a local carrier. You'll have a different, local phone number, but won't pay huge roaming charges. If you travel back to that location quite a bit, you can just charge up the SIM and be all set.
