I had the same problem and its fixed now! Steps u can take -
1. Put your sim in another cellphone, and set up the sim lock option (ask for sim unlock password when phone starts in settings)
2.Now insert your sim into your elm and then when it'll ask for sim password when booting. Enter the password and you should be through!

For me SE Elm (J10i2) is one of the better phones i know:
I like the buttons - they give a very good feeling of reaching the correct button. And I like the "system" of how every letter, space, and so on, is placed. Space-button, for example, is the same as Nokia: Number 0-button. I like that! Earlier had SE-phones the space-button on #-button. Not so good. Elm has also the alternative T9-words on the same button as Nokia: *-button! But! U can also change the T9-words with the 4-way-button. Good!
But one bad thing... They have taken away (at least in my phone) MANY alternative T9-words... Irritating!! For example, phones like Sony Ericsson W595 and K610i has the "real" number of those words. So u have to write many more words that is missing in T9..!

But, as said before: The buttons are REALLY good - u can write without see the buttons. Even 4-way-button is really good constructed for the fingers.

Also a bad things: The display has a bit DARK "stile"... Not good!! Yes, the pictures from camera and internet are a bit dark. (For example: SE W595 has a display that is much better and Sony Ericsson should have put that in SE Elm instead! The display in W595 gives a MUCH more natural and correct "light". (Thats very easy to see if u can compare them i reality.) I can tell that W595 is in MANY ways the same as SE Elm - some better, some worse. Same meny for example. Though space-button is on #. But it has more T9-words.
U can look the difference urself her on GSMarena if u want.)

In SOME ways SE Elm are SLOW... For example to delete pictures.
But in other ways the phone is fast. (If u test the "old" phone SE K610i u notice how fast it is in many ways than SE Elm.)
And to start SE Elm take unnecessary long time. (K610i is much faster.)

Battery-times is ok, but I actually wish that battery was better = better standby-/talktime - why must mobile-phones be so thin?... LONG battery-time is soo good. In my opinion.

To open up the back to reach battery and sim-card is unnecessary difficult. Patience is needed! (I guess people with bad patience can get mad on that - and break the phones into pieces, haha!)

The phone is quite good on internet. Ok, not a "year 2013"-class maybe.
One good thing is that Sony Ericsson has taken away many unnecessary steps on the "click"-way to internet. On earler phones (also Nokia and others) u needed to do unnecessary many clicks for that.

Radio is quite ok...though NOT in my taste. I rather prefer phones like Nokia 2300, 2310, 5630, which is better and more practical in some ways: U can change FM-channel with handsfree-button (and extremely quickly too!). U cant that with SE Elm: U must click new channel on the PHONE.

SE have, on later phones, a contact for the charger/handsfree that isnt so practical. For many people who use the phone much, after long using months/years, the "female"-contact slots, and cant remain the contact in the phone... U may then need a rubber band to hold the "male"-contact in the phone. NOT good! SE's earlier phones had a much better contact. And they had TWO "female"-contacts: One for charger and one for handsfree. Much better. (Example SE K700.)
Also: For SE Elm u need a bit newer kind of charger that is combined with "male"-contact - IF u want to use handfree while u do a phonecall and need to charge at the same time.

Camera is quite ok (but not the "dark display, as told before).
I actually dont use the camera of this phone much.

Anyway: Generally SE Elm is one of the better phones from Sony Ericsson, I think. Good for phonecalls, good in internet (but not so good for example Youtube) and more. VERY good buttons.
And the phone has a quite good, big display.

...But... I remeber the phone (as new) was delivered with a kind of handsfree that DIDNT have a phonecall-button... OOOH, that was bad! (NOT good! Hahaha!)
