    I am new to both android and this forum but am loving them both so far . I want to unlock my x 10 i so I can change operator and I will be able to get 2.1 update from se instead of having for my operator to filter it through. Can anyone advise as to how to do it or where to find the software to do it, any help gratefully recived

    Hi Jonseyboi

    Unlocking your phone will not give you access to the updates anytime sooner, it will let you use a SIM card from another carrier. To unlock your phone you need to get the code (it costs money, shop around!) and a SIM card from another carrier.

    What you want to do is called debranding. It is possible and very easy to do, you need SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Service) and a Windows PC or a Mac with BootCamp installed.

    You can find the instructions here: Debrand your Xperia X10 [Tutorial] | Xperia X10 Blog

    Let me know if you need help. Make sure you follow the instructions and it will be easy, you might have to start 2-3 times though, but no damage can be inflicted to your phone.
