How to unlock your SonyEricsson
How To Unlock Sony Ericsson:
Model: All SonyEricsson
1. Turn ON your phone without Sim Card
2. Press left arrow ONE TIME
3. Press * button TWO TIME
4. Press left arrow ONE TIME
5. The message "Personalize with MNC2" will appear
6. Enter Unlock Code. It may be necessary to PRESS ENTER or OK
NOTICE: If your phone have a "JOGDIAL" (Ex: SonyEricsson K700i) you must press "down arrow" instead of "left arrow" for step 2 & 3. We mean by "Down Arrow" to direct the Jogdial down.
To save time with Sony Ericsson unlock codes it helps to provide the "lock status" of your SE phone. You do this by typing:
into the keypad (left star star left)
If your phone has a joystick to control the menus do left star star left
This will the show you the lock status of your Sony Ericsson Phone.
It should show a list like
1 = Network Lock (NCK)
2 = Network Subset (NSCK)
3 = SP (SPK)
4 = Corporate Lock (CCK)
% = Extended Lock (ESL)
You will see a little LOCKED padlock next to the lock of your Sony Ericsson phone. Sometimes you will see 2, if you see 2 provide both locks. Occasionally all 5 will be locked, if this is the case provide all 5.
The padlock will be next to the lock that your phone has. This will correspond to the code you will need to be given. When providing the lock status information please state the number AND the name the number of the lock the padlock is next to, alone is not enough as sometimes this can vary from phone to phone.
The example below shows the menu, these all show UNLOCKED padlocks, which means all of the locks on this sony are unlocked.
With Sony Ericsson phones you usually only have 5 attempts at entering an unlocking code. With most phones when you enter the lock menu you will see a number - 5 or below, this is the number of attempts you have left to enter an unlock code. If you have a 0 you have no more trys and must now take your phone to be unlocked with hardware. Please make sure you dont order an unlock code if you have 0 attempts left as the code will not work, and you will not receive a refund if your code has already been sourced.
