only reasons I can think of to unlock are if you are changing carriers, would like to use a SIM from a local carrier while overseas, or to make it easier to sell.

there's really no downside

The only downside is, AT&T will no longer "officially" support your phone, and any issues that arise, they *may* blame on your device being unlocked. The only real benefit is to use any SIM card you want in your device.
