i recently bought an unlocked 8700c to use on T mobile. I have been reading all the reviews of the different OS's like Bharti and so on... my questions is if I try out an OS upgrade will my phone remain unlocked? is unlocking actually a software unlock? or a hardware unlock?

thanks

Yes the phone will remain unlocked no matter what OS you use.

can anything make an unlocked phone revert back to being locked?

no once a phone is unlocked thats it, all unlocking does is enable you to use other networks, it doesnt hurt the phone at all and you will not lose any features. it actually make the phone worth ALOT more since you can do so much more with it.
