    Just a quickie question... I really want to root, but am destined for europe in the winter so i will be unlocking my SIM with verizon. Does anyone know if the SIM unlock capability will be lost when installing a custom ROM?

    Thanks

    Once unlocked, phone remains unlocked. ROMs will not relock it

    Make sure you unlock while stock. Most custom roms that tries to remove blur break the subsidy lock interface (sim unlock screen doesn't show on them). If you flash other rom and subsidy unlock screen doesn't pop when you insert foreign sim, you will need to flash back stock ROM in order to unlock. Once you unlock, changing roms will not relock or affect sim unlock in any way.

    You're welcome! Make sure you follow guides carefully, it is quite easy to get some serious headaches with the power of the root.

    If you factory reset your phone, does it lock the SIM card again?
