Good news for all of you R800x users. Sony Mobile has finally added MEID support for unlocking your phone through their website (this could apply to other phones that use MEID as well).


I just went through the instructions on the Sony's website for getting the unlock code and then followed Ridder's guide and the install ran without any trouble (I'm not entirely sure if his process will work with other roms, can someone confirm this?)

I'm now off Verizon's horrible rom and running CM9 .

Anyways I just wanted to let people know, enjoy

*If youre having trouble with flashtool, try doing it using using the methods discussed in the links I provided above (Sony Instructions and Ridder). Alsomake sure you have Sony's Fastboot drivers installed.

Awesome I guess, can anyone confirm this for Locked R800i models? Mine is a factory unlocked, I'm just curious if Sony decided to provide a free unlock for everyone since they abandoned us on Gingerbread.

Its worth a try. Follow the steps on the unlockbootloader link I gave above, it tells you how to check if you can unlock, and what else needs to be done.

Although my phones bootloader was unlocked over a year ago via the unlock code (thank you ashergrey) I have embedded a screenshot of what I see if I follow the prompts to unlock my phones BL, even though it is....

I just went ahead and listed my phones MEID # in the sony website and 3 seconds later had this in my email inbox.


See attachment.


As I am already unlocked it appears that Sony really is now unlocking VZ Xplays. My contract ends in 2 months and I am thinking of just getting an AT&T XP and unlocking that, can anyone with a AT&T XP see if it will work for them? That would be fantastic news if it will unlock AT&Ts as well.

I cannot as my phone is factory unlocked, and even if I did relock my bootloader it isn't network locked so I could have always unlocked it,

My Att play still has a locked bootloader and apparently my MEID is 1 number too long. Eh, it was worth a try.
