Newer Sony Models (Xperia Range) Most new Sony will ask for the unlock code when you put a sim in it wont yet accept because it is locked. When you receive your unlock code(s) they will look similar to the example below: Your unlock code is : CCK: 260704XXXXXXXXXX NCK: 221877XXXXXXXXXX NSCK: 40710XXXXXXXXXX SPCK: 34120XXXXXXXXXX The letters CCK, NCK, NSCK, SPCK indicate which code to use the different locks on your handset. So you need to find out which lock is active on the handset ( But usually you'll only need the one marked NCK). To do this you need to look in a secret menu on the phone Tap the following in as if you were dialing a number to make phone a call... *#*#7378423#*#* A new hidden menu will appear. Tap on service info Tap on SIM lock If you have [x] Network 5 - this means your phone needs the net NCK Code If you have [x] Service provider 5 - this means your phone needs the SPCK Code
Jim-The NCK code is the network lock code for your phone. Does it show the padlock as closed or open on the front screen Have you definitely used the same sim card for the network that your phone is locked to Please remember that the update service does not unlock phones, it only updates the phones software.
All in all I think they did improve the update service of the phone and it all worked fine for me. I must say at first I was hesitant and did not want to do it but I think if you follow the instructions you should be OK>
hello. cool article.. I am having with my phone w580i right now. Yesterday i tried updating it through the SE Update Service, I followed all steps but I forgot the most important one. My phone wasnt fully charged, it was around 50%. It was going to start the update process when the program asked me to charge my phone. I disconnected the phone from the computer and I connected it to the power outlet. The phone was still off, no sign of anything, so i tried turnin it back on, then the phone didnt do anyhting,, the phone didnt want to turn on, i still left it chargin the whole night just in case. The next morning I repeated the process of SE Update Service and it told m e that i needed to charge my phone. Obviously the phone didnt charge, and i think it is because the phone is not on. I called SE support and they couldnt help me. My hope is to charge my phone externally with the help of another alike phone or something like that. Unfortunately I dont know anyone with this same phone. any advice thanks
