Locked sim can be unlocked as long as you didn't screw up past the number of attempts. Whether that means you get your unlock (SIM) from your carrier, Sony (not sure), or some (trusted) third party website.

Angry thanks

Thanks guys, phone is in the shop for SIM unlock/debrand and ready for pick up.
No I didn't attempt SIM lock myself, and there was 5 attempts remaining just thought about custom roms to speed it up, etc but I guess it's quick enough stock for now.
Off.to the shop pick it up now, happy days
