Normally running the repair function on Sony Ericsson Update Service resets the phone back to factory settings and clears any pattern that you had stored as your lock.  Did the lock happen before you downloaded the latest software or afterwards?

There has been a cheat around that you type in your username and then type in 'null' as the password and this has allowed some users to get in to their phones.
