    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.

    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.
