    Default TMobile HTC m8 questions

    Hi everyone,
    I bought an HTC m8 a week ago from a store in ny.
    The phone is TMobile branded and the store unlocked it for me with a code, so I could use it at my country with
    the local carriers (im not an US resident).
    Im having an issue with SMS messages being sent after 20-30 seconds, and MMS messages not being sent/received at all (I trired configuring
    everything as the carrier instrcuted).
    I wanted to Factory reset the phone, but after reading online I found out that factory reseting the phone will also mean the unlock code will disappear making my phone locked once again.

    So, I have a couple of questions:
    1. Is there a way to fix the SMS/MMS problems mentioned above without reseting the phone?
    2. Will factory reseting my phone lock it again?
    3. Will I be able to use the already used unlock code once again? If so, is there a way to extract the unlock code used at the store from the phone?

    Thanks !

    A reset will not re-lock the phone. I reset my M7 before selling it and it did not loose the unlock.

    As for MMS problem, all I can think of is your APN settings. Data is working fine, right?

    Yes, Data works fine.

    I didnt mention that I bought 2 phones from that store, one of which was factory unlocked, without any carrier branding.
    The factory unlocked one works fine with MMS and Data, so i copied the same exact settings in the APN settings, but it didnt work... which makes me wonder
    about the firmware/reset ...

    Edit: Anyway, just to be on the safe side, Is there a way to get the code used to unlock the phone, so incase
    it does reset I could unlock it once again ?
