It definitely shouldn't.
Unless it was an Android.
Not sure how they do their unlocking etc.
Every other phone I have ever unlocked never locked after reboot etc.

Hah it was an android.
And we don't have T-mobile anymore so I doubt they will help us re-unlock it.

Well i have a G1 with a AT&T sim and i've rooting and factory restored and everything. Never lost my unlock...

Try sending their customer services an e-mail or something, even if it's not in your area.

You should be able to get it re-unlocked anywhere though (paying a small fee), we've got shedloads of shops that'll unlock (got my Samsung GT-i5700 unlocked from one), failing that Davinciteam will be able to do it for around the same price.

I had one phone lock up after restoring factory defaults before, the bloke that did my Spica said it'll lock if I reset it, glad I reset it after my Uncle gave it to me, before the unlocking. tongue.gif

A factory reset would never cause an unlocked phone to become locked.
post #10 of 22
Factory reset should just wipe the /data and /cache partitions and shouldn't effect whether the phone is unlocked or not
