[kwlug-disc] Android: rooting and carrier locking

Hi all,

Despite all the chatter and the excellent presentation recently, I'm 
still unclear as to how rooting and carrier locks work together.

Is it possible to have a rooted device which is still locked to a 
carrier? If so, is unlocking as simple as rooting (supposing I pick an 
easily rootable and/or very popular device). Are there any downsides to 
unlocking a phone?
