You will need phone to computer usb connection to reset a Sony erikkson, general procedure is holding down the c button or the 2 button while you connect the phone to computer.
If you do not have usb cable you can have this done at any phone repair shop.
If this worked do not forget to vote the solution.

    The fact is , default codde is 0000, more zeros does not make any difference. This means that if nobody changed lock code you unlock it with 0000, if it does not work it means somebody changed the code.
    If 0000 does not work and code had been changed you need to connect phone to computer to unlock it, the unlock is done at any phone shop for about $10/$20 in five minutes or so.
    If you do not have computer connection find the phone shop nearest to you.

    To figure out if you have a DB2020 phone, type -> * <- <- * <- * to reach the Sony Ericsson Secret Menu screen. Enter the Service Info screen followed by the Software Info screen and look for EROM. If DB2020 is in the EROM name, the method should work.



    Here's some other Sony Ericsson Secret Codes we tracked down:



    To reset the theme: <0000>



    Lock Status: <-**<-



    Get network information: <**<



    programming checks: >*<<*<*> or >*<<*<*>



    You can check more info at part one of our Sony Ericsson codes post, and here, or here for where I got this info.

My sony ericsson w580i is asking for a phone lock code when you switch the phone on ive tryed 8 zeros but it just said i have 9 tryes left i there a reset code or any thing else that i can try


Yes sure you can get the code which is actually being set right now, without loosing / damaging any data/contacts.. anything.

All you need is the USB Data Cable, which comes with the new phone.

IF you have one, no need to worry, just follow the steps described by one of out experts, here.

This is a standard procedure and works 100%, I've tested it a number of times with full success.

Read it carefully, if you have any confusion, ask me before doing anything.

I hope this will help you out.


If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.

MY Sony ericsson W580i cell is locked


Well, the default code of your phone is ' 0000' because that is the code which is changed to a 4-8 digit lock code wehen setting a phone lock code.
 Else, your phone must have been entered witha code without your knowledge by somebody else. In this case, it is possilble to unlock the phone with a unlock code software...

Phone lock code sony ericsson w550i


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 menues on your phone. Also unlocking it and debranding it. GOOD LUCK!
