    locking mobile phones ( opposite of unlocking ;) )

    hi guys, any help will be appreciated

    got a sony erricons c905, and its just gone boom, phone is not getting any signal so now its useless, however the phone is unlocked, i did this with the aerix unlocked posted on this site a while ago

    anyone know if its possible to lock the phone again? reason being i know unlocking a phone will not break it ( its been done for 2 months besides, not recently when the problem has occured ) however who i bought it off ( dodgy company ) will not take it back unlocked as they have said any unlocking is tampering with the phone, any way of locking it back so i can send it back to them to fix? or is it not possible?

    not sure if restore to factory settigs would help???

    Not sure you can now on a sony ericsson. They say that, just to put you off doing it. Sure they wont know or check.

    You mean changing the IMEI? its not possible with a M2 handset,plus what happens when you try and make a call and what does it say on the screen

    Friend had a sony ericsson unlocked,was working perfectly then they updated the firmware from SE site and phone relocked

    They got theirs unlocked by a shop,it was a w350,the seus relocked it as you've said,so that should work for OP
