Does flashing a phone remove SIM lock?
After getting more involved with the “aftermarket” community, I have this question that’s been on my mind for a while now.

Does factory reset unlock phone?
Performing a factory reset on a phone returns it to its out-of-box state. If a third party reset the phone, the codes that changed the phone from locked to unlocked are removed. If you purchased the phone as unlocked before you went through setup, then the unlock should remain even if you reset the phone.
