Unlock codes for a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini: astonishingly simple
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini is part of Sony Ericsson Xperia range of smartphones, and gets its name from being a pocket sized version of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. It is the smallest Android smartphone on the market, and boasts a full qwerty touch-screen keyboard. Despite the Xperia X10 Mini being a pocket version of the Xperia X10, it is in many ways very different from the Xperia X10 that it is supposedly modelled on. They got the mini bit right though, as the phone is the same size as a credit card, making it the smallest Android based smartphone on the market. The phone handsets also come with five alternate-colour snap-on back panels, allowing you to personalise the handset anyway you choose, with your colour of choice. The colour of the snap on back panels provided with the phone will vary between networks and countries, but are available to buy in other colours. This article will teach what to do when you get an Unlock code for your Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini mobile.
One thing that doesn’t differ is the SIM lock placed on the phone at the time of manufacturing, to prevent it from being used with any service provider other than the one it was purchased from. This is easy and completely legal to remove, all you need is the unlock code, a specially made code created at the time of manufacturing to remove the SIM lock when desired. The best part is, removing the SIM lock not only allows you to choose any network, but also increases the resale value of the handset!
If you are a long time loyal customer of your current network, they will most likely give you the unlock code you need for free, and may even offer to unlock the handset for you in one of their stores.
If your carrier refuses to help, you can purchase the unlock code you need for a very small charge from a third party reseller. The resellers purchase the unlock codes from manufacturers and sell them on for a small profit to people who can’t get the code through their service providers.
