I used this www.unlock-sony.com with success. had the code after about 3 days, no need of using usb cables or to download funny programs.
the only thing was they send me 4 codes; CCK - NCK - NSCK & SPCK
but they forgot to tell me which of the 4 codes to use to unlock the x10i. but i found that answer (NCK code) on the forum.xda-developers.com site.
after inserting the non supported network SIM card and typing in the NCK code and all was fine. a well spend £28
Hello from Cyprus.
I am Chris and whatever i say about your service, it will not express my real feelings and the appreciation i have for you guys. I tried FOUR(4) different services to unlock my Vivaz but my unlocking was done only when i found this website on a google search and i was not sure if they are real. I was confident enough to try it because of the paypal payment.
I received the codes in less than 3 days time with very easy step by step instructions.
Even a company that offers great service in unlocking could not unlock my phone and their excuses were very idiot and they also didn't refund me.
I want to say a great THANK YOU and that i will also use you the next time i need unlocking service.
