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!

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave' for today.

PUK Codes

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

Since I don't know the name of you carrier, I'm using AT&T as an example. Most carriers use the same methodology though the wording may be different.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T in one of these ways:

• Log in to myAT&T online
• Use our Technical Support Chat.
• Contact Customer Care


To get your phone's PUK code online:

? Log in to myAT&T.
? From the myAT&T tab at the top of the page, hover over the Wireless link and select Phone/Device under the My Wireless Service heading.
? From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.
? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

You can also do it without any assistance from anyone, However, be sure to read the following carefully because there are pitfalls.

Although most people remember their primary SIM PIN code, those other codes - used for various verification purposes - are never to be found when needed. Below we've included a set of short codes which, when entered on a handset's standby screen, will let you easily change PIN and PUK (short for Pin Unlock Code) codes - but keep in mind, they may not work with all handsets and mobile operators. If you are interested in a software fix, click on the following link: Universal SIM Lock Remover

More importantly, when changing ones PUK codes there'll be no help to get from the mobile operator if the new codes are forgotten, so make sure to write any changes down alongside the old PUK codes. Also, please note that the codes should be entered without the spaces shown below.

Change SIM Card PIN
** 04 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PIN 2 (Write down the new code)
** 042 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PUK (Write down the new code)
** 05 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

Change SIM Card PUK 2 (Write down the new code)
** 052 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

Display Handset IMEI
*# 06 #

This was wordy but hopefully it helped you.

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave'.for today.

As you evaluate my advise and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

• I did not diagnose your problem and am therefore only able to evaluate what you tell me. For example, if you ask me a fuse location, that doesn't mean that I can tell you the reason why the fuse blew.
• A thorough diagnostic approach involves the use of technical equipment, such as voltage meters. scanning equipment and other sophisticated devices.
• Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. If that happens, you might want to view me as being incompetent.

"Phone locked" or "Enter PIN" Your phone is locked and you must unlock it with your personal PIN. The default PIN is '0000', but you or your network operator may have changed it.

I want to change phone lock code on T280i i have forgotten original code. i dont want to change sim lock code only phone lock


HI If you are asking for pin contact your service provider ,
he will give you a default pin .
If you try pin more than few predefined no of times your phone will ask PUK
code which can also be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and
every mobile number . Do not try PUK(new pin code) code many times or else your sim will be
blocked and you will need a new sim.
Contact your sim customer care department over phone. Its free of cost to get the pin or puk no.
Go to the nearest service outlet of your service provider they can also help you.
There is no other go than the above procedure only your service provider can give it nobody else
in this world nor any software.

Hope this helpout......

Sony ericsson k800i


If its the phone lock code and you have forgotten it, only Sony Ericsson will be able to unlock the phones lock code. Have you tried the default code which is usually either '00000' or '00000000'? If you have changed it from original default, unfortunatley there is no master code available! It has to done by manufacturer.
If its your SIM pin that is unknown then make sure you have your mobile number and call your network provider for a PUK code. Once you have this enter any code and after 3 attempts it will lock sim and request PUK code. Enter this and it will prompt you to set new pin, and repeat to confirm. Done.
