Device unlock - please help! :(

Oct 15, 2013
I'm in china and want to use my china sim on my xiaomi m2,but it says "your device is locked, please insert sim card or login with xiaomi account"

I was also here in may, and was able to switch sims with no problem so what changed? And how do I unlock the device?

Unfortunately, im unable to login with my xiaomi account as when i put my password, it says "checking" and gets stuck there and nothing happens. (perhaps because theres no wifi here?)

Please help! I need the sim urgently. How do I get the phone to accept it?!
