Default [Q] Rooting and Carrier unlock

Does Rooting the phone in any way help us to get the carrier unlock key for the device from the phone's root files?

Can this be done in an Xperia Ray?

I am Rooting an UK O2 based phone for use in India.

Root doesn't sim unlock the phone.
You have to pay.

As dimitars84 said. Also you can ask for unlock key from the contractor after the contract is over but I think it'll be difficult for u given u r in India and device is from UK. You can give it a shot to wotan server or other such methods but I can't assure you that they'll work. Even if they'll its hard to tell whether fastboot would be enabled or not.

Cheers,
AJ
