First of all get your self on .532 and root and then back up the TA partition, may save some grief at a latter date.

Then all I can say is try and try again, and make sure that you submitted the correct IMEI to Sony

Type in *#*#7378423#*#*
Go to Service Info > Configuration
And check the Rooting Status

Does it say Bootloader Unlock Allowed: No?

I should read your first post better

If it is unlockable then I don't think there is any thing you can do

Because your device is probably a carrier-linked one... almost every phone bought within the US, if it's not from the manufacturer itself, is locked.
You either will have to live with it, or just sell it and buy an unlockable one directly from Sony.
