    Benifits of unlocking?

    I just purchased an A9 for Boost Mobile. The phone is working just fine but I question whether or not I will get any OS upgrades through boost. It currently has 6.x but I noticed that 7.x id available directly from the HTC web site.

    If I unlock the phone and upgrade to nougat will it cease to function on boost?

    I'm not familiar with Boost Mobile, but with most other carriers if you unlock the device it has no effect on the phone functioning or on the network or receiving updates. Plus if your phone is unlocked you can jump carriers if need be, as long as the phone supports it

    Unlocking is basically removing the current network restriction.
    This means, including boost mobile, the phone will now work on other networks too.

    Regarding the OTA updates after unlocking, it depends on the carrier, what parameters they check before pushing the OTA to a phone.
