Just buy an unlock code and then your friend or relative can put in a sim card for another carrier.

I don't think that is 100% true. Cariers now share blacklist. I had tmobile phone I bought off craigs list that was blacklisted shortly after I bought it. Even after I unlocked it, it would still not work on tmobile or ATT. I was able to modify the IMEI on the phone, only then was I able to use it, kinda.
Phone: I can never just pick one..



Partial List

LG G2, LG F3, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3, iPhone 2G, LG Optimus G, Nexus 4, HTC One, HTC One S (x3), Galaxy Note 2 Verizon (2x), Galaxy Note 2 International, HTC 8X, Nexus, Galaxy S3, HTC One X, HTC Rezound, Droid DNA, LG Optimus V, HTC Sensation, HTC MyTouch 3G, HTC Hero, Palm Pre (ya, I said it)
