You can't unlock bootloader if your device service info says "bootloader unlock allowed:no"

I was reading on the Sony forums a while back that you can. It was in the support for the Z forum so I don't know if it will work on the M. If the phone is locked to a network (the most common form of bootloader unlock:no) and you unlock it and THEN flash an unbranded firmware the bootloader status will change from no to yes. That post was made by a Sony support person too, but as I said, I have no idea if it would work on the M.

My Phone: Sony Xperia M C1905 | ROM: Modified Stock | Base Firmware/Build Number: 15.4.A.0.23 | Android Version: 4.3 | Kernel: Stock (Permanently Locked Bootloader) | Network: GiffGaff
My Tablet: Google Nexus 7 (2012) | ROM: CM11 | Base Firmware/Build Number: 11-20140527-NIGHTLY-grouper | Android Version: 4.4.4 | Kernel: CM11 | Network: N/A

Hello New-Moderr,
You could contact Sony Support and ask if they could change the status of your phone after you've unlocked the sim of it. That might just do the trick, some people have reported that Sony will do it.
My devices:
  • Xperia X8 ➜ CM7 ➜ nAa kernel
  • Xperia Ray ➜ CM10.1 ➜ nAa 3.4 kernel
  • Xperia U ➜ CM10.1 ➜ Unknown kernel
  • Xperia Arc S ➜ CM10.2 ➜ nAa 3.4 kernel
  • Nexus 7 ➜ AOKP ➜ M-Kernel
  • Xperia C ➜ Stock ➜ Stock kernel
  • Xperia Z1 Compact ➜ Stock ➜ Stock Kernel
