First, put the old SIM back in the phone and disable all locks. The old SIM may allow you to do this so that you can transfer the new SIM. Second, you can reset your anti-theft password through AVG For Android. They list several ways including AVG Mobilation and resetting your password.

Unlock with AVG Security. You can also bring the phone into the Sony store for them to fix this but it will cost money in most locations. AVG Security has the ways to bypass the code. If you did not change your SIM lock, something locked the SIM and it may have been an update to the OS.

If this was your regular swipe lock on the phone then put in the correct pin until you get the option to use your Google Account with Forgot Password. If it is a new lock that means it is a SIM lock that you will need to get assistance from AVG Security which is posted on the top of the phone.

The SIM password is a code and not a pattern. Try the last 4 digits of your phone number. If that does not work then insert the old SIM card in and disable all anti-theft security measures including SIM lock. You can use the steps in the top answer if your phone still will require a password. AVG has created some solutions to the SIM lock.
