Re: Nokia 5310 Unlock help
Hello creater90, I know that T-Mobile can unlock your phone free of charge since you have a T-Mobile phone. If you are interested in how to do it
Call T-Mobile Customer Care while roaming internationally, dial +1-505-998-3793. From your T-mobile phone will be free of charge.
But I also took the liberty of finding other valuable information for you
Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Co.
- This are Guyana's carrier's frequencies, and it looks like your Nokia 5310 may not be compatible with Guyana's Frequencies, so even if you unlock it you will get a: No PLMN messege which means : no local singal will be found.

When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :- This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone. They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone. Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone. You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country. This maybe a free service. The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services.Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code” in your area.

There is a long answer and a short answer to your question. The short answer is to find someone willing to do it for you for a fee (try Ebay or Craigslist, usually $20 or so plus shipping).
The long answer is to learn a LOT about phones, obtain (somehow) the software the engineers at Nokia use, find (somehow) a hack to unlock it, find (somehow) a new flash and flex package to install, and install it yourself. I did this with my Motorola Razr, and while I was eventually successful, it most definitely would have been worth the $20 to have someone do it for me.
