When you try to unlock the phone more than 5 times it locks the phone but only for 30 seconds and you can try again, this is right from Sony's site, you will have to call them for the only way I know is to either try to remove everything from the phone, Sim, Battery and leave it for 10 minutes and try it, if not then you can try Sony's default unlock code 0000 . other than that see if you can get into the phone menu somehow to turn it off or do a Factory Reset.

I had the same problem with my x10, i tryed everything even turning it off for a while then back on. I entered in my google account info over twenty times and it still never let me in. I have managed to now unlock my phone without having to send it away, i went on to sonny ericsons website and upgraded the software on my phone. The only thing about doing this is that it wipes off anything saved to it. Just remeber to take out sim card and memory cards.

could you please provide me the link from which you downloaded the software?

I downloaded the PC Companion from Sony's site but that didn't work for me. I inserted the USB cable while holding the Back key, nothing happened and the phone just booted into its previous 'enter google acct' info again.

i dont understand why they have that screen if the phone refuses to take the google acct info

There was a suggested cheat... try typing 'null' into the password box. It worked for some people so might be just the thing for you! Let us know if it does.

Thanks for the feedback. I think you were lucky cos it hasn't worked for a lot of people and they have had to do the whole reset/repair thing. Its worth advising people to give it a try first tho just in case.

If you have tried the suggested cheat of typing in 'null' and that hasn't helped then the only thing you can do is a repair using Sony Ericsson Update Service, link given above. It will wipe your phone tho but its the only thing that will sort it out.

Default Unlocking a Sony Ericsson x10

I am having difficulties with my x10. I have read all of the other forums on how to bypass the gmail account and I have tried to do that with mine. I have tried updating my phone numerous times and I have the newest firmware on the phone. I have also put "null" as my password to see if that would help and I still have the same result. If there is another way I can unlock it without having to send it in, may you please help me out. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

You need to do a repair not an update on the Sony Ericsson Update Service programme downloadable from their website. It is the only thing that works but will wipe your phone. If this does not work then I guess your only alternative is to have it seen by SE service centre.

I have tried to repair it several times and each time I have no luck. Do you think when they release the upgrade to the Android 2.1 it will take care of it? I went and found out that that might occur here in the next week to three weeks depending on how long SE takes to add the new HD feature to the phone

No if the normal repair doesn't fix your problem then I can see that the update will. I suggest it needs looking at by SE or your telco/retailer.

The information that you need is all contained in the thread. Have a read through, basically you will have to do a reset/repair via Sony Ericsson Update Service.

You need to go to Sony Ericsson's own website and search for Sony Ericsson Update Service. The links above don't seem to be working - I will try and fix them but the website is based on your world location anyway so probably best to get the download applicable to you.

You will need to run a reset via Sony Ericsson Update Service, not PC Companion, as the SEUS does not ask you to mount the phone.

I tried doing the same as you guided but there is no pattern appeared. Plz help me out of this situation.please guide me either there is specific area of the screen where you have to touch or there is unique way of doing it. Or please suggest me some other possible solution to unlock my phone. Please your help will be greatly apprecaited. anxiously waiting for your reply...

Try the following link to hard reset your phone. There are three ways to hard reset your cell phone mentioned in the link. I use the option 3 and got my problem solved.

I had this problem only I forgot my gmail password cuz I never use it. I fixed it. This only works if you have a shortcut to your settings on your home screen.
When on the screen with gmail and password theres a emergency call option, select it.
on the call screen press back, you have a split second to select settings.
do it again when you press back it should show your settings menu
you have to be quick and press security
do it again and you should see the require pattern option at the very top.
the next time your on that screen you have enter your pattern as quick as possible, and that should solve the problem.
this will take a few attempts and be very frustrating, but be patient and you wont have to wipe your phone

This also worked for me and was so quick too. Can't wait to get rid of this phone though.

I just managed to unlock mine (eventually).. just switched off, removed sim card, switched back on and entered the correct pattern, then put sim card back in and switched it on again and it worked. This truly is the worst phone of all time, last time this happened I had to have a factory reset done and lost everything so thanks all.

Here is a tip....turn the pattern off.

Second tip....remember the pattern if you set it.

I am still amazed how there are at least 2 or 3 people a week that come on here to complain about how they set a lock pattern and forgot what it was.....somehow I don't think the problem is the phone's fault.

Thank you so much!! to every one else yuo must have alot of patients. i almost broke my phone i wanted to slam it on the wall from the irritation. This works even if you dnt have a shortcut on your home screen.

1) open slide, go to account info screen

2) go to emergency call (now heres where its frusterating BE PATIENT)
press the <- back key

3) very quickly press menu, Repeat 1 and 2 then hit security.

4) after this keep reapeting until you complete the patern removal.
the screen will quickly in a second keep going back to the slide screen keep repeating step 1,2. When the phone takes you back to the slide every time you repeat step 1 and 2 when you hit the bak botton the screen will be exactly where you left off.

what you got to go to is Menu, Settings, And Uncheck the (require pattern box) then the tricky and most hard part is entering your pattern You only have 1 second to do so.

*This only works if you know your pattern. My phone got locked because my nephew was messing with it.

More specific if my instructions werent clear. Txt or call 510)367-2118
totally free lol.

You are brilliant - password of Null did not work for me and i have been going around in circles for past 4 days. your suggestion of trying the emergency button and the back key through settings took a few attempts but has worked ! I could bake a big apple pie for you!!!!! thank you!!!!

This security feature in X10 is a joke . My x10 got locked and was not accepting my google account password . I typed 'null' as password and it worked .............. freaking ????
