Introduction|www.xperiaunlocked.com
What Is Sony Ericsson Unlocking?
When you purchase a Sony Ericsson W302 phone from a network carrier, it
may be locked to that carrier so it works only with their specific SIM card.
The only reason to lock the phone is to ensure you use their service for an
extended period of time. If you attempt to use an alternative SIM card in a
locked phone, you will receive an error message such as "Wrong SIM Card".
Cell phone unlocking enables you to use your mobile phone with a SIM card
from any carrier. Once the device is unlocked, the error message is removed
and you are free to use the SIM card of your choice.
Unlock Method:
Our IMEI based unlocking is reliable and safe. It requires that you provide your
IMEI number (press *#06# on your device) to us so that we can calculate the
unlock code. Once the code is ready, enter it with our unlock instructions. It
will never relock, even if you wipe or update the firmware.
