    Smilemaker Thanks, have tried this and no good. Possibly previous owner I bought from,may have put his own code in? is that possible?
    When I turn on it asks for unlock code? and was told phone was already unlocked.
    Any more ideas pls pls?

Pin and PUK phone security codes functions are used to prevent and discourage theft. Default pin code is 0000 or 1234. If you lost PIN code, you are asked a unique code assigned to the phone from factory, called PUK code. The PUK code is printed either in phone box or on a sticher on manual. If the old owner does not know puk code then the phone may be a lost or stolen one.
If you do not know either PIN or PUK there is no way to access to your phone, as this will make life easy for thiefs.
At your local phone service shop they can override the PIN/PUK and have your phone flashed to factory setting. However , if your phone results stolen they may decide to contact the authorities.
Best solution is patiently waiting for old owner to give you PUK or PIN code, so that you can start using the phone.
If he lost both of them, ensure the phone ownership is genuine, then go to a local service shop and have the phone flashed, it is not expensive(£20 in UK, must be $30 in US).

Regards

Sony Ericsson W850i Locked, no code.


Ok, THIS WILL WORK! It worked on my W580i and it wasn't even supposed to. FIRST! Download (8.8MB) XS++ From HERE:http://forums.se-nse.net/index.php?showtopic=16338
SECOND! No install. It just runs.
Make sure you have ALL drivers for YOUR phone. That should be under the bettery. Under model... or something like that. HERE! http://www.nodevice.com/driver/company/Sony_Ericsson.html

Take your phone, turn it off. Start this program and click on connect. You'll have 30 seconds to plug your phone into your computer and HOLD C The entire time! (the delete button or 2). If connected, then click at the button: GDFS. There will be a phone lock reset to "0000". Click it. It will take no more than 45 seconds. I promise. Unplug your phone, and vuala! If your phone won't turn on, try pulling out the battery, putting it back and trying again. This program is also good for flashing phones, and putting flash menus on your phone. Also unlocking it and debranding it. GOOD LUCK!

To open the country code Sony Ericsson W850i.


Your phone relocked as a result of upgrading its software. You will have to search the internet for a way to patch unlock the phone again or pay someone to permanently unlock it. Sorry but I cannot give specific info as I do not know if unlocking your phone is legal in your jurisdiction.
