Question about Nokia 6300 Cellular Phone
The restriction code is the code you will need to enter using the keypad to allow the device to work with a SIM from a provider other than the one that originally sold the phone. To get this restriction removed you will need to request it from the original provider (Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile, etc). It is helpful if you are a subscriber to their service as they will often provide it at no cost if you are.
The 6300 is a Nokia BB5 type phone which means the on-line unlock code calculators will not be of any use. If you can not sweet talk the oriignal provider into giving you the code you may want to take it to a shop to have them hook it up to a computer or a clip to alter the firmware so it no longer is locked.
Alternatively you can acquire one of the x-SIM style unlocking devices that fits in the tray between the gold contacts and the SIM and fools the phone into thinking the appropriate SIM is present. Since the 6300's SIM holder is fully exposed and the SIM is locked down by a bale that uses a positive lock this is probably the best way to manage this problem absent the code from the original provider. If you need additional information feel free to follow up with another question. I don't sell any x-SIM or unlocking services.
