I have an iphone 4 (5.0.1, 9A405) with 4.11.08. I unlocked the iPhone originally using the SAM method. Is it possible to upgrade to ios7 without loosing the unlock?

I think he's right about losing your unlock. iOS 7 completely removes all JB tweaks. You can't do iOS 6 either UNLESS you do a semi-tethered JB using Redsn0w. Because 6.1.3, the latest firmware, doesnt have an untethered JB availabe. But if you're cool with a Semi-tether, then you're in luck cause it only works on 3 devices. The iPhone 4 is one of them.

jit is right
and assuming you have a developer's account, you can beta test on iOS 7, but indeed you WILL lose your unlock.
is iOS 7 really worth the loss of your unlock?............In my opinion, NO
but its your phone and you can do whatever you want.....IF you do upgrade and any issues arise, if you want to go back to "any" iOS 6 version, you MUST have "valid" shsh blobs.
That means you must have saved them "locally" on your computer when Apple was still signing them, otherwise if you saved them from tinyumbrella, then they are useless.
For iOS 5, you can still use SHSH blobs from tinyumbrella or other resources.

Actually, you can Beta test iOS 7 without a UDID. There's a very easy work around. And you CAN downgrade to iOS 6 without blobs, because Apple is still signing 6.1.3.
I say all of that from experience. I have an iPhone 4 also.

yah you are right, it's weird because typically only devices registered with a developer's account are able to beta test ios 7
HOWEVER, please be cautious if users ask where to obtain the iOS 7 firmware

Where can you get a legit iOS 7 beta two firmware?
Does anyone know if Instagram Facebook Twitter and other common apps work on iOS 7?
If I update to iOS 7 beta-2 on my 4S can I use iOS 6 backup for contacts music etc.?

Yea but can't you get it free online? YouTube vids show you how to install it with out a dev account but not where to download it.
