    OK. So Ive bought an unlocked Storm that is coming with OS 5 on it, but I like sticking to official builds/releases. So my question is if I put the latest official 4.7 on the Storm, will it relock it to Verizon? Thanks in advance!

    No, the OS has nothing to do with it.

    So even if I do a wipe before loading 4.7, Ill be ok? Is there an OS thats proven to be better than the others? Im going to be a new Storm user and want to make sure I get the most out of it! I do like full use of all my applications like facebook etc....

    Yes, it is fine to wipe. The unlock cde information is stored on the board and not in the OS. You said you want an official release, so that pretty much leaves you with .75 or .148 unless you want to use an OS from another carrier besides Verizon. I would probably recommend the .151 or .167, I think. You should spend some time searching the OOS forum for details on what is best for AT&T. All I know is that the latest 5.0 releases are causing trouble for some folks using the GSM radio.

    Unlocking is permanent on Blackberry..even if you upgrade/downgrade OS or wipe handheld, blackberry will never relock
