If you carrier unlock your phone, you will not lose your unlock status as the code to unlock your phone is partitioned in another compartment that's not where the OS is.
If you're rooted and accept the update, you WILL lose ROOT though.
Sign up with Dropbox using my referral and get an additional 1/2GB on top of the 2GB you get for signing up http://db.tt/YbULMZX
