Model : All SonyEricsson

1 - Switch ON your phone without SIM Card,
2 - Press 1 time the left arrow,
3 - Press 2 times the button * ,
4 - Press 1 time the left arrow,
5 - The message "Personalize with MNC2" will appear,
6 - You can now enter the Unlock Code we send to you.

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 !


We might send you more than one single unlock code, i.e. NCK, NSCK, SPCK, CCK codes. If this is the case then you first need to find out which one of these locks is used on your phone by following the below instructions:

Type the following in to your phone: >*<<*<* (right, star, left, left, star, left, star). A menu will appear on screen, scroll to 'Simlock' and check which lock type has a locked padlock status (e.g. NCK, SPCK, etc).

Whichever lock type has the 'locked' padlock status, use the correct code given to you accordingly to unlock your phone, using the instructions given at the top of this page.
