Re: pin code for sony ericsson z525a

The code was originally set to be 0000...if you haven't changed it then that should work...unfortunately you'll now have to take the phone to your service provider to get the PUK code.

If 0000 isn't the code any longer because it was changed and you don't remember what the code is, you'll have to send the phone back to Sony Ericsson and have them reprogram it for you. Unfortuanately that also erases any pictures, ringtones, etc. you may have added.

How to unlock sony ericsson w580i usa mobile to use in india

When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country. This maybe a free service.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code” companies in your area.

Insert Smartchip

You have to insert the smart card all the way in on these phones. You can use a pen cap or something to push it all the way in there until it goes all the way in and click and stays there. Then it will not say " insert smart chip" anymore.

Turning on bluetooth on a z525a

The Sony Ericsson Z525a features bluetooth. To turn it on, enter the main menu and go to CONNECTIVITY, BLUETOOTH and there turn bluetooth on. Now that the bluetooth is on you can send music files to your phone via bluetooth.

Blank Screen - Sony Ericsson Z525a

The fix for the Ericsson z520/z525 White Screen of Death (WSOD) is to buy a new flex cable and replace it. You can get one off eBay for like $10 after shipping.

Taking apart your phone can be a little tricky. You'll need a T6 Torx bit and a little courage. You can use this site as a start. After that, a pair of tweezers and a few photographs to get you back where you started is all you need. I can post a couple pics I took, if there's interest.

Note this only fixes the WSOD case where the phone still can make and receive calls, you just can't see anything on either screen.
