Default [Q] Please help a newbie

Hi, i just got my first HTC phone [Used - HTC One T-Mobile unlocked - i'm in Africa btw] so i don't know how it was unlocked!
my concern is if i managed to root and install CM, will i lose the unlock ??
how to know my unlock code ??
what if want to return to stock ROM or what if want to update to the upcoming Sense 6 [what ROM should i install International ROM or Tmob] and will i lose the unlock?? is there any possibility i lose the unlock??

find below the software info i found in the phone:
Android = 4.4.2
HTC Sense = 5.5
software # =4.19.531.10
HTC SDK API Level = 5.68

Also if you know any easy way to unlock the screen with other option than the power button i'll love to know it. and the Led indicator don't blink when i got whatsapp msgs too..

Sorry HTC newbie

If you root your phone, I don't think you will loose unlock. I also on T-Mobile, but I'm in the States, I'm using Insert Coin Sense 6 Rom. It's international, there is options when installing the Rom for different carriers. Don't use CM recovery! The best one to use is TWRP. There is instructions in the international section of this website on how to go back to stock. There so many roms to choose from, I don't think you will want to go back to stock. Nobody really comes in the T-Mobile section. You're best bet is to check out the international section.
