    No. Unlocking the bootloader is unlocking part of the OS, typically needed for rooting/flashing ROMs.

    Nope. Unlocking bootloader means you can flash custom recoveries and the like, but not use a different carrier.

    I used to have an iPhone. To unlock carrier, I have to jailbreak(root) and install a app to unlock. Is an android device the same way?

    An unlocked bootloader can help you unlock the sim though, depending on the situation

    You get the unlock code from the carrier (or buy it from one of many places that advertise on eBay). When you put in the "foreign" SIM it'll ask for the unlock code. Put it in and the phone will be SIM-unlocked. It doesn't have to be rooted (the Android equivalent of jailbreaking).

    Is there any apps that will unlock network just like ultrasn0w for iPhone? And now, I have another problem. I'm on custom rom and it stop asking to enter unlock code. I don't know how to enter the code.

    Did you put in a sim from another carrier?

    Yes, I do. However, now I want to restore Stock Firmware from LG in kdz format but I can't, because I have CWM Recovery Menu installed and I can't get back to original Recovery Mode. What should I do?
