Question Help about updating my i9506 to kitkat

Model no. : SHV--E330s.
I would just like to ask if i update my firmware from 4.3 to Kitkat,, will it lock my phone again from other networks? This is important for meas Iuse it inthe Philippines. Do I alsoneed to have the knowledge in understanding korean language to be able to update the phone?

For those who tried to upgrade it, are there any issues like battery life? Do they also work on all carriers in the Philippines after updating?

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR THOSE WHO WILL RESPOND!

battery life is better, touchwiz is better and smoother, color improved, ya KitKat is a Good deal
but there maybe some trouble after updating an unlocked phone
maybe it will go back to sim-locked or not
it depends on the method you used

What I mean by Method is :
That there are different ways to unlock your phone, if you use an app to unlock your phone, after the update it will be locked again
If you use the dialing screen method, maybe it will remain
And maybe there is a difficult
