    If it has been factory unlocked, no, it can not be locked again even if you update it.

    If the bloke unlocked it through iTunes, it's factory unlocked. If he unlocked it through a jailbreak, you'll lose it when you update. Perhaps more detail on who the bloke is and what market you're referring to?
