I recently bought my Xperia Z1 online and Love the phone but can't unlock my boot loader. When I bought the phone I hoped that unlocking would be allowed but sadly it was locked. I found out that my device is from Canada and under the carrier Telus. I spoke with Telus and they told me that they charge 35 bucks to unlock boot loader and since I am with At&t with the C6906 they told me that I would need an active account to unlock but I was going to buy a sim and get a prepaid plan but they ship no items to the USA. So Im aware that it is $35 but I will pay whomever does this for the 35 dollar charge plus 40 dollars for your time and it should not even take an afternoon to help me unlock. So if you are a Telus user and able to invoice me the 75 dollars via PayPal or some other means I will gladly pay. 😋😊😊
I don't think they would really unlock your bootloader though... As far as my experience with sony since 2011 nobody has yet manage to unlock a locked bootloader even thru network operators. I think what they are talking about is network unlock which reps usually mistake between bootloader unlocking. So better sell it and get a real unlocked version instead.
It's already a SIM unlocked phone and I already spoke with Sony and they informed me to talk with Telus because it's carriers that request that bootloaders come locked. I called Telus and they told me that they had no problem providing the boot loader unlock code but I needed an active account to charge the fee. It's even on the Telus page somewhere where it states the fee for unlocking the boot loader.
