The following is based on an assumption that you are referring to Sony-Ericsson w995 cellphone and that you are in need of an unlock code.
Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This is generic because I don't know your carrier. I'm using ATT as an example.
Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them
When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.
Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.
Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.
Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.
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 your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:
? logging in to your my wireless Account online ? using their Technical Support Chat ? calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500
To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:
? Log in to your my wireless Account. ? Select My Services under My Account. ? From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device. ? Select Unblock SIM Card. ? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.
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 ATT 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."
There are three other ways to unlock a phone:
? The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets; ? You can do it yourself by clicking on this link Free Unlock Codes , ? Pay $3.89 at the following website: www.theunlockshack.com/. I have absolutely no affiliation or relationship with The Unlock Shack or its principals.
I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best
To unlock a phone, you'll most likely need an authentication code from your phone service provider. Try contacting whoever provides your phone service, and requesting a code to unlock it. This may take a few days (I have had to deal with this recently myself.)
As you have not specified in particular what is the unlock code required for you, i am giving the ways to unlock all the codes
NETWORK UNLOCK CODE:
You can unlock it by flashing your mobile if your mobile is a CDMA mobile... The procedure for flashing your mobile is in the link below http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Flash-your-cell-phone It has an video explanation.
your mobile is not an CDMA mobile , you can get the network unlock
code(NUC) by just contacting the current network provider customer care
department.It is free of cost.
The restriction code can be got
from your old service provider..This restriction code is kept to prevent
someone who stole the mobile from using it with another provider...
They will have a security check done with your date of birth etc..to verify whether you are the exact owner of the phone..
After that they will provide you the restriction code to unlock it and use it with another service provider..
Do not pay anyone for this seeing some advertisement over internet . That is all fake ads.
The above procedure works and you can verify that by seeing the rating of an happy customer here.. http://www.fixya.com/support/t4979448-need_unlock_motorola_razor_v3_from_optus
PUK code can be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and every mobile number. Contact
your sim customer care department over phone. Its free of cost to get
the pin or puk no. If you cant contact through your phone get some other
phone and contact them. 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... Go
to the below link and you can confirm that the above procedure works
and there is a testimonial given by the customer too.

you are talking about the security lock code to enter into the phone
then once it is lost nothing can be done except flashing the mobile .
Because if anybody can give the security code created then who ever who
steals your phone can get into it and get your valuable information.
So as safety precaution to avoid that they have designed it such that if
you forget the security lock you have to reset the mobile memory by
flashing the mobile at an authorized service center.So while flashing
the mobile all the data in the mobile memory will be lost and you can
again start using the mobile.
