I have been fighting over this for several days now but I can't seem to find the information I'm looking for: how to unlock the network lock of a Sony Xperia Z Ultra so it can be used with a SIM card of any network.
All I have found is how to unlock the boot loader or root the device. Does doing that also unlock the network? I'm not sure...
Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
Best,
Hayssam

Put another sim in the phone and itll ask for an unlock code. You can get it from your carrier or go to unlockanyphone.com I think it is and its 13 or $19 as I've already looked just to see how much it'd be but I already have a unlocked phone

I don't know if it will work for the Xperia z ultra but it worked on my girlfriends note 2. I just flashed a generic firmware from my location in which case a generic UK/EU firmware

If any of you are in the UK and your phone is locked to 3 network, they will unlock it for free now. This applies to any handset on 3, whatever make and model.
