    Remember if you use your BB keyboard, sometimes you have to alternate between numbers and letters (letters most of the time). So your password could contain letters instead of numbers.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Sir If you want to unlock your phone lock code please go through the following procedure. This procedure will tell you your Unlocking lock code without flashing and resetting of any kind!
Follow these steps;

  • Open this link and download the software for your Spiro PLEASE CLICK HERE

  • Follow the onscreen instructions to install the software.

  • Once installed, turn off the mobile and remove the battery. Now reinsert the battery and insert the cable (DCU-60 thatcomes with the box) while holding the 'c' or '@' button on your mobile.

  • Your computer will detect a new device and install it.

  • Once installed please unplug your mobile, remove the battery. Now reinsert it.

  • Download xs++ from here

  • Extract this file and run XS++.exe

  • In XS++, click Connect.

  • Hold 'C' or '@' key on your phone and then insert the USB cable.

  • u can get some information about your phone when it's connected

  • click or tick GDFS at the bottom.

  • Then click Phone Lock, it will show you the code on right hand side. Note that code.

  • click Settings at the bottom, then Disconnect.

  • unplug the USB cable, remove then reinsert the battery.

  • You are done, enter 0000 or the Noted one (In the 3rd last step)

    You have done, This procedure surely helps in getting Unlock Code for Sony Ericsson Mobiles.

    But if you find this process little bit tough and unfortunately u don't get the unlocking by this then other option is to get unlocking code online


    Here select your country and the network and order the Unlocking Code, Though its an little bit expensive but Its the only site which provide you correct and timely unlocking service,
    It take 3 to 10 working days to provide you unlock code. when u will get unlock code, follow the given procedure
    Do not enter any wrong unlock codes on your Sony Ericsson W100i Spiro mobile phones. If you enter over a certain amount of wrong unlock codes on your Sony Ericsson W100i Spiro mobile phone, your phone may get hard locked and sometimes become unusable.1 - Switch ON your Sony Ericsson W100i Spiro without any SIM Card,
    2 - Press the left arrow key/button once,
    3 - Press the button * twice,
    4 - Press the left arrow key/button once,
    5 - The message "Personalize with MNC2" will appear, (or you will have displayed an unlock menu, select the lock you want to unlock)
    6 - Enter the Unlock Code.

    Try first method if you get your unlock code by this then there is no best option for you except it, Its the free procedure to get unlock code, But if u don't able to do this then to unlock adopt second method.

    I hope this solution surely helps you.
    Let me know if you have any confusion.

    Your words of Appreciation and Rating will be esteemed.
    Thank You for taking my service.

    I enter many codes when i click the real code i cant unlock my cell phone anymore

    Hi,your phone is locked already therefore the real code is no longer able to access the phone,you have to get a new unlock code.Here is a detailed solution on how to get the unlock code for your nokia phone;
    STEP 1 Before trying anything else, contact your service provider and ask for an unlock code. Usually, if you've been a customer of theirs for some time, they will provide you with an unlock code for free. This is, by far, the best way to get your phone unlocked.
    STEP 2 Download software to generate the unlocking code. Software is available on some websites for free and some pay websites that also offer support if things go wrong. See external links below.

    STEP 3 Find the Serial number of the cell phone, also known as your IMEI NUMBER. This can be done by either removing the back of your cell phone and looking underneath the battery, or simply by typing in *#06# into your cell phone. It should be something like: 010082321439976/07951780736

    STEP 4 Using the software you have downloaded, enter in your Manufacturer (which is in this case Nokia), and sliding the card out. Put the battery back in and power the phone on.

    STEP 5 You will see a message "Insert SIM Card". Enter all of the characters you see in your code, including the # symbols. To get a 'p' press * 3 times, to get a '+' press the * key 2 times, to get a 'w' press the * key 4 times. Disregard any spaces in the code

    STEP 6 In order to unlock your phone you generally need to enter only one code. Start with the first one. If your phone is not unlocked by typing the first code (MCC+MNC), use code "7" (Multilock)
    STEP 7 Once you have finished entering a code that works you should see a message that says "SIM is not restricted" or "Restriction off" message depending on your model. If not, try entering another code. Message "Cannot undo restrictions" means the phone is "hard-locked" and cannot be unlocked by code

    Thanks and take care

    Keypad doesn't seems to work - seems locked - gets incoming calls


    under tools there is a record option. erase all things that have been recorded. the button on the top screen on the right hand side allows you to record phone calls. You have probably been hitting it on accident and recording calls and such. Let me know if this works.
