Default Unlock bootloader not possible?

I wanted to unlock bootloader and therefore checked the root settings. It says that unlock is not allowed. Is that because I bought it over network provider or can I simply ignore it? Is everyone of you able to unlock it?

This has been covered a few times. This means that your carrier has blocked unlocking of the bootloader, so you will NEVER be able to unlock it. There is no way around this.

As far as I read in the net there is a paid way to unlock it. Does anyone know if it is possible to unlock without opening it to activate test point...

Do you know what is Unlock Bootlader? Do you know what is SIM Unlock? They have nothing to do one to each other.

Unlocking Bootlader will not Unlock SIM Carrier. To unlock SIM Carrier you have to pay for it.

Actually I did not say any words of unlocking SIM. Talking about bootloader... there is a tool called SETool2. With that it is possible to unlock phones that aren't unlockable. The phone needs to be put into test point mode connecting some pins on the board.
Just wanted to know is anybody has experiences with that.

Ps. .. And in most cases when unlocking the phone the SIM lock vanishes too

Well i did a test point bl unlock on my xperia play but that was easier because it had a removable back...unfortunately the Z1 does not so you will have to take the back off and find the test points
