    If you purchased it unlocked, flashing the device won't re-lock it. If you had it unlocked, you can just re-enter the unlock code to unlock it again...

    Whats the general rule, if you had your device unlocked via a service like www.imei-check.co.uk ?

    I think it would re-lock! Am i right?

    Yup...I'm pretty sure it would revert back to locked.

    I'm pretty sure it won't. On some older devices, the lock status was part of the firmware but in more recent Treos, it is separate.

    I have heard that once you unlock it, it stay un locked for good.

    That was a good question. I bought mine unlocked off eBay- so I wanted to be absoutely sure that upgrading won't affect this.

    On the off chance it does, what are my options?(does anyone have anything that I could borrow-i.e. unlock card or code or?)

    You can't borrow a code - the codes are unique to your IMEI. But in general once unlocked it stays unlocked.

    If you follow this thread:

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...d.php?t=140536

    it starts about the Treo 750 price drop, but the last several messages are about your question, OS upgrades and unlock status.
