Is there anything special I should know about buying an unlocked phone

and using it on my network provider?

(ie my plan is on ATT and I want to buy an unlocked Galaxy Nexus)

Make sure it uses the same frequency/bands as your provider or you may not be getting 3g/4g whatever the case may be.

If you don't currently have a data plan with AT&T and you start using your SIM in a smartphone, AT&T will start charging you for a data plan even if you only plan to use WiFi for data.
