Looks like Carrier unlocked .... BUT this is no garantee that the bootloader is unlockable. Anybody is being warned! If a user wants to use it for SFOS-X - please mail them befor placing an order and ask if the bootloader is unlockable!!!!!!!!

I don't think that the seller knows whether it can be unlocked or not. Usually they should all be unlockable. However, it seems that later revisions from 4 cannot be unlocked since another feature introduced blocks it (unintended). It might be the theft protection of the My Xperia app.

Bought the F121 (Graphite) from B&H around mid-October for $239 and have Sailfish running on it. Can confirm that for this non-carrier affiliated model the boot-loader is unlock-able.

Link to the one I bought:

I bought mine from B and H too and it was unlockable, running Sailfish fine

First of all, thanks for sharing!

Seems like a good offer for North American residents. Shipping to EU is 39$, tax & duties go on top. In the end it is sadly not really cheaper than current EU prices of ~250€.

I have had also some unlockable Xperias here in the past. All were used, pre-branded and SIM unlocked. NO ONE of them was bootloader unlockable :-(
