Just purchased a used Samsung Galaxy S2 and the previous owner did not want to do a hard reset just in case it would remove the unlock (it's originally a Virgin Mobile device but I'm on Rogers). So I was just wondering if a hard reset would remove the unlock or no? I really want to start everything from scratch especially since this will be my first android phone. Thanks in advance
If the device was unlocked properly, whatever tool edits the NV files correctly to simulate a code unlock OR even if the device was unlocked via subsidy code, hard reset will have no effect on the sim lock status.
