Okay, so I have a GT-i9000 with which I flashed Cyanogenmod 11. Now I only SIM-unlocked it AFTER I flashed the custom rom, and it works. I can make calls and text other people. Now, if I decide to flash ANOTHER rom, should I do so? Will it "re-lock" or remove the unlock from my phone? I've read other posts that say that you should unlock the SIM with a stock rom, but that's not the case here. I flashed CM11 before the unlock..So should I just leave it or can I flash a new custom rom without the phone being re-locked.
- I understand that SIM unlocking is more of hardware programming than software, but why then should the ROM (whether stock or custom) matter?
