Unlock codes for a Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY : the hidden secrets
The Sony Ericsson PLAY is one of Android smartphones released in 2011 as part of the Sony Ericsson Xperia range. The unique selling point of the Xperia PLAY is that, as its name suggests, you can play games on it as it doubles not only as a smartphone but also as a handheld gaming console in your pocket! And not just any games, the Xperia PLAY received PlayStation Certification meaning you can use it to play Playstation developed games.
So with such unique and exciting capabilities, its no wonder the Xperia PLAY is so popular and sought after. But the issue comes with the fact that you can not necessarily get the phone on your network. But all this can be changed, with the simple use of an unlock code, and some simple unlocking instructions, you can remove the restrictions that lock the phone to one network, meaning the phone will then be available for use on any network. Not only will you have the freedom to choose any network, you will also increase the value of the phone!
To gain the unlock code you need, you should first ask your network service provider. If you have been with a loyal customer to the network for a while now, they may well offer the code to you for free.
If they refuse to help you with the unlock code, then there are other ways to obtain it, although they may not necessarily be free, and some can be risky. When you find a website or independent unlocking service, do some research to make sure there are plenty of reviews on mobile unlocking forums to reassure you that they will provide a decent and honest service.
You will also need to purchase a SIM card that is not accepted by the phone at the moment, i.e. one that is not on the network the phone is currently locked to. Once you have the SIM and the unlock code, its time to get to work! First insert the new SIM into the handset, and switch it on. The phone should display a message similar to ‘SIM network unlock PIN’, this is prompting you to input the unlock code. Once you have entered the code and it has been accepted, your phone is unlocked! It’s a simple as that! If there are any issues contact your network service provider or the source for your unlock code.
