    Sony UX280P – Unlocking

    January 27th, 2007 byPhilip Nicosia

    One of my brothers recently bought a Sony UX280p as a treat to himself for giving up smoking after seeing my Sony UX180P. The main differences between the two are more ram and a bigger hard disk drive in the UX280P.

    When he got it he didn’t realize that he had a sim card in it and could use it to access the internet on a 3G connection in the UK. He even deleted the Cingular Connection Software that came with it.

    Anyway, after pointing out the error in his ways he was able to download the Cingualar Connection Software from here.

    Once he had done that he was able to unlock the Cingular Edge Card so he could use it on another network and then got it up and running with a payg T-Mobile sim card taking advantage of their unlimited internet access for £1 a day.

    To do this he followed the instructions that I had previously written for the Sony UX180P and these worked just the same for his UX280P so if you need to unlock the Cingualar Edge card on the Sony UX280P or use a T-Mobile sim card with it then just follow the instructions on the pages below:
