SOURCE: unlock sony ericsson w200i
I need the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. Type this code in your phone to get it: *#06# you can also find it beneath the battery.
I also need to know the network that the phone is locked on, and the country you’re in. Then I will give you the codes.

Because I am a longtime good customer, Cingular kindly provided me with the subsidy unlock code so that I can use my new W300i on my upcoming several-week trip to Europe, with a local SIM card that I purchase in country. They claim to have sent me both the code and the instructions for unlocking the phone by email, but I didn't get the email. After several calls back to Cingular support, I talked to a customer service rep who found and read me the instructions for entering the subsidy unlock code for this phone model. (This may be the same for other Sony Ericsson phones, I don't know.) Here they are... 1. put a non-Cingular SIM card into your W300i and power it on. 2. the display will indicate that the phone is locked, telling you that you cannot use the phone on this network. 3. disregard this 4. hit the left arrow (the left side of the navigation doughnut, I assume?) 5. hit the star 6. hit the star again 7. hit the left arrow again 8. this should result in you being at the Unlock menu. If not, start over and carefully repeat the steps. 9. the display will say "ME Lock", and in a few seconds it will change to say "Network" and show a picture of a locked padlock 10. Press Yes 11. The display will say "Unlock?" 12. Press Yes 13. The display will say "Enter NCK" 14. At this point, type in the subsidy unlock code that you received from Cingular (16 digits, probably) 15. Press Yes 16. The display will say "Network" and show a picture of an unlocked padlock (Note: if after doing this, you don't get this result, your subsidy unlock code may not be correct; do not try this more than 2 times total, as I've heard that the phone may be damaged permanently if you try a 3rd time.) 17. After doing this, the phone is permanently unlocked, and can be used on any compatible GSM network on any of the 4 bands this phone works on (which in the USA includes T-Mobile, and in Canada includes Rogers and Fido). The phone is still running software loaded by Cingular, so there may be a few menu items that may not work correctly, since they may be customized for the Cingular network service. To change the software, you have to flash new software into the phone, and I have heard that is possible, too. Someone else's post may cover that procedure. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY YOU NEED THE SUBSUDY CODE FROM YOUR PROVIDER. I hope this helps some and GOOD LUCK!!! :-)

going that route is pritty much a ripoff what you can do is call the service provider for that phone and get the unlock code b\c by law they have to give it to you but only if you are or were a customer with them and if not find a buddy that has service with them and get your buddy to do it for you. they will ask why you need it just tell them some bougus story like your getting ready to with another service provider. but be sure not to cancle your buds account lol
