Default Questions about bootloader

Could not find any info using search.

1. Is BL locked in pre-ordered device ?

If answer is YES:
2. Is it unlockable ?
3. Does Sony provide on demand unlocking codes in a way they did for other models ?

All phones came with their bootloader locked, some phones from network carriers will not allow the bootloader to be unlocked. However, if you have a sim free phone then you can unlock the bootloader via Sony site. There is a guide on the forum, it's basically same as Z1.
