Default Unlocking question

I recently unlocked an S3 for a friend, I did the whole downgrade to 4.1.1 method then the *#197338640# now my question is this, if she upgrades the phone when she's on the new network back to 4.1.2 will it ruin the phone being unlocked? Thanks, first time I've ever done this.

gt i9300 international SIII has no locked bootloader (only one I know is verizon one). so either you are in the wrong SIII forum or you have done something unnecessary...
Samsung Galaxy SIII I9300 Pepple Blue

File system: /data on F2FS
Recovery: arter97 f2fs enabled philz touch

Your right, sorry. Like I said I did this for a friend I don't own an S3 so I didn't know where to post. Thanks

No, SIM unlock is permanent and can not be reverted by flashing OTA.
