And might some of these problems people are referencing be due to their buying an unlocked one?
And what are the advantages, if any, of getting a locked vs unlocked one?

There is no issue other than whether you want to deploy the device on a carrier other than the one for which it is branded... i.e., buying from AT&T and using on T-Mobile. The advantage is simply choice. As long as you keep it on the correct network (CDMA=CDMA, and GSM=GSM) you will be fine. For instance, a Verizon device (CDMA) can not be used on a GSM network (in the US) except in Europe and some other Asian nations.
Using an unlocked device will never present a problem.
