Please help with updating my Gnexus
Hello guys I just switched from an iphone 4 to my first Android phone.
This Gnex rocks and it makes my old iphone look like a toy
I need your help with updating my phone to the latest version of the software , I am a beginner in this
1/ Should I really unlock the phone to get the updates fast or wait for them from google which seems to take a long time ?
2/ What data will be erased ? I mean my photots and emails , ... , are synced with google so will they be back later ? and what about the apps i have previously purchased ?

One thing at a time.
You do NOT need to unlock the phone to receive an update fast. Being unlocked will have nothing to do with how quickly you receive it. All you need to do to make sure you have the latest (officially released) updates is go to Settings>About Phone>System Updates. If there is anything available, it will start downloading/prompt for an install right then and there. Otherwise it will say Your system is currently up to date.
Nothing will be erased with the system update. EVERYTHING will be erased when you Unlock the Bootloader.
