How to Unlock Sony Ericsson W580i


The Sony Ericsson W580i is a cell phone manufactured by Sony Ericsson that is part of their Walkman line of phones. An odd combination of a cell phone and a music player, they were clearly targeting people who wanted to carry both devices while working out, since one of the phone’s features is a built-in pedometer. We will tell you where to get an Unlock Sony Ericsson W580. The keypad slides out to dial or text, leaving only the screen and navigation buttons when talking or listening to music.

The W580i is a GSM phone, so you can get and make calls no matter where your workout takes you. If your phone has a SIM lock, forcing you to use one exclusive carrier, it’s easy to unlock your phone. All you need is a little information about your phone – the make, model, current carrier, and IMEI number exclusive to your phone. With that information, you can get free codes for unlocking phones from most carriers. Just let them know that you need the unlock codes for the cell phone because you want to use it with an international SIM card when travelling outside of their coverage area. Most carriers have no problem with this. Some even have a dedicated service representative that does nothing but handle requests for unlock codes for cell phones.

Where can I get an Unlock Sony Ericsson W580i

If you can’t get free codes for unlocking phones for whatever reason, you can still buy the codes to unlock your phone from an online cell phone unlocking service. These cell phone unlocking services will give you the exact same code that your carrier would have given you, except they’ll charge you for it.

You’re also going to need a new SIM card. This card needs to be the one that you will use to make and receive calls when travelling out of country. You can either get one locally at your destination, or you can get an international SIM card before you leave. If you’re planning on getting a local SIM card, you can pick up a cheap SIM card from any local cell phone store to use while unlocking the phone.

After you get the unlocking code and the new SIM card, follow these steps:

1. Power off your phone.

2. Take out your existing SIM card. Put in the new SIM card.

3. Power on your phone.

4. The phone will request the SIM network unlock PIN.

5. Enter the specific code you received.

That’s all you have to do to unlock the W580i. Once you’ve unlocked it, you can use it with the GSM network of your choice, and it will remain unlocked no matter what new updates are rolled out to it. The phone will also have a higher resale value, compared to a phone that is still SIM locked.
