    It shouldnt. The only thing that rooting does is gives you superuser permissions. Changes nothing in the software. Now if you flashed a custom ROM, I cant vouch for anything

    An unlock code allows you to use a SIM card from any carrier in the phone and use their network. Thus if you have an AT&T Aria and you unlock it, you could put a T-Mobile SIM card in it and use on T-Mobile's network for phone calls and EDGE-only data access.

    You would also want to unlock your phone if you take it out of the country and want to use a pre-paid SIM while traveling.
