My question is, would there be any advantage of going to a shop and having them unlock it using a cable or another method?

I plan to "hack" the SymbianOS using HelloOX or another method, would there be any difference if I had it unlocked via code?

If it is locked and Vodafone will unlock it for free, then do that.
Unlocking by cable/hack box invalidates the warranty - IF Nokia find out.

Once unlocked, HelloOX etc will work fine, regardless of how it was unlocked.
