Troubleshooting steps

My phone prompts for the unlock code but I get an error when I type it in (Sony).

Do not retype the unlock code if you get an error message. Reply to the e-mail we sent you with the unlock instructions with the following information: A photograph or screenshot displaying the IMEI number of the phone (type *#06# on the keypad). The network provider your Sony is locked to. The number of unlock attempts remaining, following these steps: Turn on the phone with a SIM card inserted (this is IMPORTANT, because without a SIM card you may be told you have unlock attempts remaining when in fact you do not). Type the following: *#*#7378423#*#* Select Service Info/Sim Lock. Look on the first line (Network): [X] Network 10 [0] Network 10 Send us the number you see after the word Network. If there is an X and a number that is not 0, you can unlock your Sony. If instead you see a 0, you will not be able to unlock your Sony even if the unlock code provided is valid. This is why we recommend performing this check before making your request. Also, check that your Sony hasn’t been rooted or modified at some point in the past. If your phone’s software has been modified, we recommend restoring the phone to factory settings so it responds correctly to the unlock instructions.
