My girlfriend is selling her old Tmobile Samsung Galaxy S2 sgh-t989 that had Android 4.02 on it asked me to clean it up so she could sell it because it ran very slow so I installed Cyanogenmod because its lightweight and also assuming it would unlock it for the carriers. After a bit of reading, on this forum I discovered my assumptions we're wrong. Now my question is this, the person who she sold it to is on AT&T. With Cyanogenmod on it, if she calls up AT&T will they still be able to unlock it or should I flash it with a stock rom?

You can not unlock it on custom ROMs with apps, only from pc at a service store(perhaps), on stock 4.1.2 it is possible with various apps like GalaxSim( I recommend it, altho it's paid nowadays) and Chainfire's app(I don't think it works anymore though)

It's possible, I used the old version of galaxsim to unlock my Telstra locked i9100t and it worked like a charm. I'm pretty sure you can get it free as an apk.
