    Default I bought an unlocked phone... When i upgrade software will it re-lock?

    It comes out of the box with gingerbread 2.3 but can upgrade (legally) to 4.0

    When i upgrade the software, will the phone be locked again?

    its the samsung captivate glide. it will be an official update though, through samsung kies from what ive read. the 'official' part is good, but at the same time its what makes me nervous about the locking.

    After SIM-unlocking a phone, a software update should not (and I'm 99.9% sure will not) re-lock the phone.
