Firstly try downloading xdaunlock copy this to your xda, go to your file explorer on xda, find the xdaunlock and double tap. If it unlocks the phone then great, if not you can use serial cable and xda manipulator , manipulator runs from the desktop and also may unlock your phone. If neither work you will need developers special edition rom , DO A FULL BACKUP OF ALL DATA AND PROGRAMS. I would suggest that before you use the special edition rom that you get an sd card, 64 megabytes is good, enter bootloader, choose ce to sd, this will backup your existing rom to the sd card in a bootable format so you can just insert the sd card, hold power while pushing reset, push action key, the rom will then copy back to the xda. HAVE A GOOD LOOK AROUND THE FORUM BEFORE PROCEEDING. Pay special attention to bootloader issues with certain revisions of bootloader. The ability to cook roms that contain extra software in the previously wasted space makes the xda a much more useful thing than in its original state. You can upgrade to an official WM2003 rom with extras if you wish, all for free. If your radio stack is working LEAVE IT ALONE, most xda's that are rendered banjaxed are as a result of botched radio stack upgrades so please dont look for the latest or best or prettiest stack, the one that works is the best and that is usually the one already residing in your xda. Have fun.
