    Yes, rooting your device gives you access to some of its restriction i.e. by rooting your device you can over the restriction of network unlocking, but one more thing rooting has its disadvantages too, as your device may get bricked. so I must say before moving forward with the rooting make sure that you know almost everything about it.

    Rooting also voids all warranties on the device.

    Rooting in and of itself does not unlock the sim. Depending on the device, with root, certain devices can be sim unlocked using certain methods.

    Rooting a phone does not automatically void warranty on the device. It could certainly impact warranty, but not an automatic void. I had rooted phones before, all I had to do was to unroot the device to send it back in for warranty service. I know some have even sent in rooted phones to get warranied without issue, though I personally would not recommend this.

    Bricked, possibly, but only if something obviously wrong is done. Like using an HTC root method for a Moto. As long as a root method is followed for proper carrier and device, everything should be fine.

    S2, S3, Moto X, Nexus 5, and Galaxy Tab 2 all successfully rooted.

    Yes, you are totally correct that is why I have told @Aizu to first know completely about what rooting is then move forward with rooting the device. Rooting can be fruitful as well as sometimes for some user it has been a pain, I remember one of my friend has root his new devices and the good thing is he don't know how he does that and like I say he don't know how he rooted the device, he also don't know how to unroot it, problem occurs go to the servicing centre and end up paying Warranty voids customer care rocks and my friend shocks !!
