I saw MCC block list befire buying Now rooted so no hasardous update

I'm not trying to screw them on the phone but I would like to be able to use it on my trip.

They look like the same MCCs as set out in the list sent at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=584 except I guess that you missed out four MCCs which I have added identified with asterisks when copying it over (please confirm if guess is right - the number 63 at the top is the number of MCCs there should be - the other combinations consist of the 3 digit county code for the MCC and "BB" is wildcard for MCNs in that country):

460 China
454 Hong Kong
250 Russian Federation
255 Ukraine
401 Kazakhstan
259 Moldova
437 Kyrgyzstan
438 Turkmenistan
436 Tajikistan
428 Mongolia
400 Azerbaijan
282 Georgia
283 Armenia

525 Singapore
452 Vietnam
505 Australia
520 Thailand
515 Philipines
502 Malaysia
510 Indonesia
456 Cambodia
414 Myanmar
457 Laos
404 India
405 India
470 Bangladesh
413 Sri Lanka
429 Nepal

734 Venezuela
714 Panama
712 Costa Rica
740 Ecuador
704 Guatemala
708 Honduras
710 Nicaragua
744 Paraguay
[***748 Urugay***]
736 Bolivia
732 Colombia
722 Argentina
730 Chile
716 Peru

621 Nigeria
620 Ghana
639 Kenya

257 Belarus

I note that Australia (MCC 505) is on the MCC block list and from an earlier post that you had an Australian SIM refused.

Please can you confirm:

- what the exact CSC file name is (by dialling *#1234# into the stock telephone dialler to find the CSC file),
- where you bought the phone, and
- also maybe mention the way you accessed the MCC blocked list in the CSC in case helpful for others wishing to do the same.

You should note (ha!) that the Australian models are not region locked at all...

A number of people in this thread have mentioned looking for escape routes from Samsung's shenanigans, including phones from Sony, so I looked into Kawaisa's questions. Mingkee is right that Sony supports microSD memory-expansion cards.

I looked into Sony's line of phones with an eye to the replaceable battery feature many of us want.

Sony has 22 phones with replaceable batteries, though only 12 of them have a display with at least 228 ppi. Of those, 10 also have removable microSD cards. 5 of those phones have a minimum of 1.0Gb of RAM: 3 with a CPU running at 1.0GHz and 2 at 1.5GHz. These last two are basically the same 4.55 in./323 ppi phone... the Japanese domestic market Xperia A with 2Gb RAM & 32Gb internal memory and the ZR with 2Gb RAM & 8Gb internal memory.

I'm now joining those who've newly placed Sony's top smartphones on their watchlist... waiting for non-JDM 32Gb internal memory and, someday, a USB 3.O port... but glad to see Sony cross the thresholds of 1080p screens and 64Gb microSD card support with this year's Z1 & Z Ultra. Some of us are hoping Sony's choice not to include battery access in these two Snapdragon 800 powered flagships doesn't mean it's abandoning this convenience.

As far as I know the Snapdragon 800 is 32-bit, not 64
