Bootloader unlock allowed: No

I bought my phone online.

The seller told me that the phone belonged to the Swisscom.

There is no way to unlock the bootloader?

 

Tnks in advance

It seems that you've asked the question before

 

https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Android-development/Rooting-Status/m-p/1349595

 

The answer is no, there's no way to change this; carrier networks request this to be locked, the only way around it is to replace the motherboard which will cost you almost the same as a new phone.
