Default [Q] r800at question

Hi, Im new to the forums
I have an at&t xperia play r800at that im using outside the US the phone is unlocked with a code that i dont have anymore, i want to remove the bloatware, free up space and make my phone run faster, i want to install the generic r800a rom to get 2.3.4 on the phone, the question is this:
if i flash the phone to r800a rom, it will lock back to at&t?, or if at anytime i want to restore it back to stock it will lock back to at&t?
Thanks in advance for any help that you guys can supply

I'm pretty sure that onces it's unlocked its unlocked no matter if you flash another rom or not. I need to find another sim so I can unlock mine (got the code the other day) and I could test that for you.

I'll seek out a non-att sim so I can unlock this week and let you know. Maybe during that time someone else that knows for sure will respond.

Current Phones/Tablets:
Xperia Z2 // OnePlus One // Xperia Z Ultra // Lumia 1020 // Surface Pro

Sony SmartBand // Sony Smart Wireless Headset pro MW1 // Smart Bluetooth Handset SBH52 // Z Ultra Power Cover CP12
