SIM only plan lock phone to Virgin?

Hi,

I am going to be studying in the UK next semester, and am considering unlocking my iPhone 5c from my carrier here in order to use a Virgin SIM-only plan while abroad. After the semester, though, I'll be returning home and will need to be able to use my phone on my network here. Will using a VM SIM while in the UK lock my phone to the VM network? If so, will I be able to unlock it within 5 or so months of starting use of the VM SIM?

Thanks!

Hi starcarnivals,

 

once your iPhone is unlocked I believe it is necessary to log into iTunes and register it as such with Apple.

It should then remain unlocked and open to all networks.
