    I have a Bold 9930 (Verizon) unlocked and a 9700 (Rogers). I will be upgrading my Verizon line to the Z10 (hopefully soon!!) and then will stick my Rogers sim card in the 9930. I've already looked into it, and it seems like the phone will work on the network, but my question is, if i wipe the 9930, will it lock it back to the Verizon network?

    I can also confirm it will remain unlocked even if you wipe it

    The only way a phone will ever relock is if the IMEI is changed. That usually only happens if the phone is officially repaired.

    I am in the same situation as the OP, and part of the question has already been answered here, that after wipe z10 will not revert back to its locked state. However, if I update the device from the pushed update notification, will the device again get locked. Has anyone been in this situation and tried this. Also my device is already unlocked, but I don't know the unlock code, any ways I can check in my device what unlock code has been used to unlock the phone.
    Thanks

    Unlocked once is unlocked. No matter the OS updates. Only an IMEI change by official means would lock the phone again.
