Because your anti-theft was active, when you switched SIM cards it triggered the security features. The easiest way to overcome this is to use your former SIM card to disable the anti-theft. Since you set it up, you should try digits corresponding with your life like your birthday or address. The last four digits of your phone number is also a popular code to use.

AVG Support lists how to unlock the phone with their mobilation feature. It is likely the Sony device had AVG as the security provider. This will allow you to unlock the phone remotely. If you still can't bypass the Privacy Protection then you will have to use ADB tools to unlock your USB first before you can install firmware for the Sony Xperia z5.

You will probably have to install new firmware for the Colors e20. Try first to put in 000000 or 123456 for the password if you never set one. The phone also might have the last four digits of your phone number if it was set up that way in the store where you purchased the phone. You could try first to use the AVG Mobilation since that may have been your Lollipop 5.1 anti-theft provider.
