Hi i have an unrooted Xperia S with a locked bootloader. Is it still possible for me to go into recovery mode?
These are the following methods that i have tried and have all been unsuccesfull:
Holding down volume + and power when starting up (only vibrates 3 times and doesnt even start up)
Touching the Sony logo a few times at start up
Pressig/holding the volume + button when the sony logo comes up
Connect my phone to PC and then power down with volume +
And btw my LED doesnt even go blue at start up as some forums mention that when LED goes blue thats when you press volume + on start up
Please let me know of any/all possible ways i can go into recovey mode , thanks.

There is no recovery mode you can enter as default.

As said by Johan the XS does not have a recovery mode however if you were to unlock your bootloader you would have 2 options Flash Nozomi-Recovery or install Clockwork Mod
As for the lights this for to enter Flashmode or Fastboot - Assuming your phone is switched off then holding the volume down key then connecting your USB cable would enter Flashmode for use with Flashtools
Holding volume up then connecting your USB cable would enter Fastboot mainly for use with a Command prompt for installing custom roms etc
