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.
