welcome to the forums

If I where you I would have gotten a warranty replacement phone, if that is out of the question I guess the first troubleshooting step to take is re-installation of the phone OS.

Good Luck!

No it should not affect it. If the phone is unlocked, then it is unlocked

But if you want to be 110% sure, you should have the unlock code at hand, (the one you used to unlock it)

you cannot relock the device once you unlock it. you can upgrade/downgrade/reinstall the same OS and it doesnt make a difference.
