    Hey i've recently bought an unlocked At&t Nokia Lumia 900 from e-bay and i wanted to do a reset to change my windows account. Will reseting my phone to factory settings remove the sim unlock ?

    Resetting is only doing changes in the factory reset part i.e if we did changes on the manufacturer part it will be resettled. While sim unlock deals with the network provider.
    But in the case of iPhone if we do a change in the OS it will affect the unlock changes.
