Default [Q] Bootloader/Sim unlock via Wotan Server

I want to unlock my bootloader(SK17i), but in service menu it tells me Bootloader Unlock Allowed: No.

So I assume this is due to the Simlock.

Now I wanted to ask if it is enough to go to any Phoneshop to get an unlockcode for my carrier and afterwards it will be possible to unlock bootloader via S1tool/SE?

Or do I have to use a service like Wotan Server?
If so, can you please explain which service exactly I have to use or what it will cost?

Thx a lot in advance

Use wotan server.. It will unlock your phone and bootloader, no need to use s1tool after that..

yeah I knew that, I just wanted to ask if it has the same effect if I just sim unlock my phone ;D
cause I don't have a paypal acc. and CCs are also not that wide spread in austria...
So if its possible to just sim unlock the phone and do the rest via testpoint mehtod, I would prefer that^^

Carrier unlock doesn't enable fastboot, which is needed for bootloader.

OK thank you, that's what I wanted to know

So Wotan Server is my only possibility to unlock the bootloader, isn't it?

Edit: Just to be clear. Do I have to use the first or the second option?

You can unlock the phone on your operator and then you can use s1tool..
