    my phone say sim locked

  • kanojiark Apr 23, 2009

    Last year I purchased a Sony Ericsson W580i mobile phone. I never changed its phone lock code (which is by default "0000"). Recently I tried to change the code. But my phone is not accepting the default old code as "0000" and displaying a message 'wrong code'. Can you help in resetting the phone lock code.

all the phones have security on them to prevent them being used after a contract insurance claim is paid out and in the event of being stolen.

basically you all have glorified paperweights m'kay

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

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.

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.
