    Hey. I have an unlocked 9780 running .2xx and wanted to throw on a new version of the OS.

    If I run BBSAK first or either wipe the device, will that "erase" or undo the unlocking that was performed on my phone?

    What about loading a new OS? Will that kill the unlock?

    NO, wiping and installing a new OS will not relock your phone.

    Nothing you do to your phone will re-lock it, unlocking is permanent.

    Just to confirm with everyone else that upgrading, downgrading, wiping, reflashing os will not relock your device once unlocked.

    Once unlocled its unlocled forever no matter what OS you install.

    The only thing u will net be able to get rid of (at least legally), is the carrier splash screen, even if u wipe ur phone u will still get it.

    Once you have unlocked your device means that it is it is unlocked forever....
    Updating or degrading does not effects the locked/unlocked status of your device....

    There are alot of other speculations as well i guess. Let's remain to the point of answering questions rather standing up out of no where and blaming each other for spamming.
