Default [Q] Xperia p network unlock (sim unlock)

is anyone working on unlocking this device. my network won't let me unlock it and i don't want to use a website to unlock. i need to unlock it to use a different sim card and unlock bootloader for cm11 and other rom.

For the sim card I believe you need the assistance of a 'website' (although I dont know if they actually work)
Or your network provider.
Who are you with?

As for the bootloader, head over to this website to unlock your bootloader with sony.
Note that it will probably void your warranty.
... Ok scratch that I cant post links

google this:
Sony unlock Bootloader.

the bootloader allowed is set to no, so i presume i have to unlock the phone before it will allow me to unlock bootloader. how come no one is working on to unlock this phone?

Unlockinh the bootloader is unrelated to network unlocking the phone, as far as I know. But unlocking the bootloader will allow you to network unlock your phone by flashing a custom ROM i think, so I guess they kind of are related. I think you need to talk to your network provider first. That'll help. Otherwise

Try rooting it and go from there. If you can

If your bootloader allowed status is set to "no" you can't unlock your bootloader

according to this thread it seems that i am able to unlock bootloader by sending it to sony if i have a sim unlock code.

Guys What do you thing about placing a bounty for unlocking our devices? Maybe it will encourage devs?

If a problem doesn't affect a dev, it is not his problem, devs also have their private life /job. Thats why a gratifocation might help (as amply as our pockets can afford it)
