Step by step instructions:

1.> Get your cell phones IMEI number. Press *#06# ( 5 key press) and you should see this number displayed on your phone. Note down all numbers except the last two. You will need this when you call your providers customer service to ask for subsidy unlock code. You can also get IMEI number by removing the battery cover and battery. You should see the IMEI number written on a sticker. This number is the correct IMEI number and should match the one displayed when you pressed *#06# on your phone except for the last two digit. AGAIN DO NOT GIVE THE LAST TWO DIGIT WHEN ASKING FOR SUBSIDY UNLOCK CODE.

2.> Call you cell phone customer service and give this IMEI number. Ask them to give you SUBSIDY UNLOCK code. Subsidy unlock code is 16 digit long number.

3.> Once you have unlock code, press <**< ( < is left navigation key) key combination ( 4 key press). Select Network to unlock network and enter the subsidy unlock code. Press OK. You will see Network unlocked message displayed. Inputting incorrect unlock more than 3 times will permanently lock your phone to your provider. So beware when you enter the numbers.

You now have a Sony W580i phone that is unlocked and can be used with any GSM based mobile providers.

Good luck. Hope it helps.

Mproblem with my sony ericson w580i


This is due to the fact that your phone is simlocked for one provider, in your case Orange. You have to ask them for the code to unsimlock it According to the countries, this can be done for free (in several european countries, you have to prove you've been owning the phone for at least 3 to 6 months and your provider has to give you this information). There are other possibilities to have your phone unsimlocked : some shops do it, sometimes legally, sometimes not, with costs that may vary..

Unlocking my sony ericsson w580i


IF U ARE USING THE SAME CARRIER AS BEFORE (ATT FOR EXAMPLE) IT WONT NEED UNLOCKED. IF U WERE GIVEN A NEW SIM CARD FROM UR CARRIER WHEN THE NEW PHONE WAS BOUGHT, THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO USE THE SIM CARD. THE CARRIER ATTACHES THE SIM CARD NUMBER TO UR ACCOUNT. YOUR OLD ONE CAN BE USED ONLY TO ACCESS YOUR CONTACTS, BUT NOT TO MAKE CALLS.YOU CAN HOWEVER PUT THE OLD SIM CARD IN UR NEW PHONE FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF TRANSFERRING UR CONTACTS, THEN REPLACE YOUR NEW SIM CARD INTO UR NEW PHONE
