Default Help about unlock (I have use the search but I cannot find a Sticky thread to trust).

Hi,
I have received a SIM locked SGS3 and the Firm is using is 4.1.2

It seems after reading a little that it is possible to unlock it on this firm, but i couldnt find the answer to these questions:

1 - Will the unlock be forever or do I need to SIM unlock every time I put a new firm on it?

I was thinking to use a 4.3 or 4.4 firmware.

I want to root the phone, change the actual firm and SIM unlock the phone. Which step should i make first?

Maybe I can get a unlock code from the company, will this last forever?

A link to a newby thread will be ok too. I have been looking one hour and I was not able to find the correct answers.

Thank you very much

Buy a code, the 'free' unlock doesn't work on latest firmware.

Go read the sticky thread in general forum.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

I did but I did not find the answer to these questions related to SIM unlock. A link to the thread will be ok if you know it.
