    Hello! Before I begin, I'm new to this forum so if I've posted this in the wrong place I apologize. Feel free to reprimand my noobness :)

    I'm about to get my new android phone, the HTC Aria (its not as snappy as the Galaxy S3 but I thought I'd better start small and work my way up).
    When I get it it will already unlocked and its "operating system" is at 2.1
    I did some research and found out that I could root the phone as well as flash different operating systems, or "roms" (I'm not an expert on the terminology so please correct me if I'm wrong :)). This overly excited me because I love tweaking things and making them my own.

    My only question is, if I flash a new rom to the phone, will it remove the carrier Unlock currently on the phone?
    I also lied seeing that I have one last question. In anyone's opinion what is the best rom for the HTC Aria? Thanks :)
