    Hi Guys,
    Maybe someone can give me some advice.
    Im the proud owner of an unlocked orange uk hero running on t mobile austria network.
    I have heard that the newer heros cant be unlocked because orange have made a deal with htc and changed the codes. I must have been lucky because mine unlocked no problem with the code recieved from the imei number.
    My question is if i update the rom with the orange rom version on the htc homepage will my phone become simlocked again, and more worrying will i not be able to unlock it again when it has the new rom on it?

    Nope. Once unlocked, always unlocked. ROM updates have no bearing.

    Not first-hand but I know it's worked this way for many others. The unlock is definitely not affected by ROM updates.
