All Sony Ericssons can be unlocked ny code.
Note you only have 5 attempts to enter the right ones though.
If you paid either the network, or somebody that has obtained the codes for you then type with the phone on (sim in or not. Doesn't matter) type

(left star star left)
A menu will appear with the locks shown

The codes never end in # and will not have #pw,etc in front. Lastly there is an ebay selling codes for about a fiver. These 100% do not work. We have a few people a week bringing phones to use moaning about this.

If either is Voda then £15 is the going rate for the code. If it is 3 then you are looking at about £40
If they are on another network, or they are not yet in the database then you are looking at around £40 for a direct unlock but the handset is obviously needed by the unlocker.
We do them, but there are many sites now that offer this service.

DEE, i dont know who its locked to but mine was voda so i gave em a ring, they gave me the code there and then!! even walked me thru the unlock over the phone!! i had 2 phones to do and had to get 2 seperate codes for em..
The upshot of it was that it was FREE.. also they didnt use a universal code..
Im not pay as u go btw.. mayb this why they dont mind giving the code.. as im stuck with a contract..

Good luck m8..

BTW iv been looking around and iv had prices from £15 - GET THIS.. £70!!!! robbing b'strds..

Yes I reckon I could some server credits. They cost me £100 for 10 at a time. 10 is the minimum amount you can buy (to get the discount).
Thats why most vendors are now selling Voda unlock codes for around the £15 - £20 mark.

If you want to buy a bunch, then let me know.

Mr Blartiartfast , thanks very much mate.

i just got my daughter to put her voda sim in my 800i so she could phone vodaphone to get me the unlock code, they said it will take up to 3 days, and it was free.

anyone needing help unlocking sony phones try mr Blartiartfast
first , he is a Star.He bent over backwards to help me out and we got it sorted in the end.
