W580i - Problem in Unlocking the Phone

I got W580i mobile from US. My brother was using it over there. The network provider was AT&T. He was using the mobile for the past 4-5 months. He gave me the 16-digit unlock code for unlocking the mobile in India. He said that when I insert a sim card over here I will be asked for the unlock code. Once I enter the correct code the phone gets unlocked. But, when I inserted the sim card over here, it didnt ask for any unlock code. What I am getting on the screen is a status message called "Please Insert a Correct Smartchip". Kindly help me in unlocking the code. You can mail me at I would be really thankful if someone can help me!!

Re: W580i - Problem in Unlocking the Phone

Press the following sequence when your phone is on: Left(joystick), *, * left.

Either a menu will pop up where you have to pick NCK or you will be able to directly enter the unlock code.

Good luck!

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.
