Default Unlocking Sim while on custom rom?

I believe I got the unlock code for my One S while it was stock/rooted, but Im on a custom rom and was wanting to switch carriers to an ATT MNVO.

Can I just pop the new sim in and it will prompt me for the sim unlock code on the custom rom Im running right now? Its with 2.16 hboot using the Viper Rom / Sense 5. Or will I need to do a complete reset of the phone to bring it back to stock first?

As far as I know, it's best to unlock your device on a stock rom. Once it's unlocked you won't need to do it a second time since it's permanent.

I had some trouble unlocking my device on different custom roms, just as i went back to a rooted stock rom the unlock worked.
