    Another thing is if your phone not sim unlocked this will not unlock the sim , you can flash it and use the unlocked firmware but wont be sim unlocked unless you already have done that .

    OK.
    One last thing, my current firmware code is ATT, would it be OK for me to flash my phone with an XAA (unlocked) firmware? REMEMBER THAT MY PHONE IS BOOTLOADER LOCKED!

    Are you sure it won't mess anything up in my phone

    Yes , all files will be unlocked version
    Bl
    Ap
    CP
    CSC you can use home CSC might save data but not sure when going to unlocked version

    It will wipe your phone(factory reset) so back it up first

    And you can reverse back if wanted to

    I did exactly what you are doing starting from a Verizon version. Changed to a U1 with no issues, get OTA updates, etc. All's good
