Default [Q] factory sim unlocking and root

wondering if anyone can please help me urgently

I have a Sony Xperia Z1 Canadian model C6906, rooted kitkat 4.4.2 (Build 14.3.A.0.757).

I am traveling abroad to South America. I plan to factory sim unlock the phone with Rogers' Carrier so I can use the phone while I am in SA.

Will I lose Root or will this affect my rooted Z1?

thanx.

sim unlock and root are totally separate. they will not effect each other

And don't worry, I have already asked the mods to move this QUESTION that I have ANSWERED to the QUESTION and ANSWER section

If you are unsure, then read this.
If you are still unsure, watch this.

thank you for getting back to me so soon.

I just don't want sim unlock to kill my root!!!

so I can just go ahead pay Rogers $50 to get the phone factory unlock while still keep my root........

If you want, it will not touch root, but even if it does, just root it again

Hehe, you won't lose root after Sim Unlocking.. I've unlocked my phone today and everything is working fine, no issues with root or whatever.. I'm quite happy because I got my unlock code from Three UK for FREE!!!! They have new policy, no more sim-lock's and if have one, they'll unlock it free of charge. Happy days!
Good luck with unlocking
