Dear Ean,
Best way to unlock is to contact your network operator (if network lock) or service centre (if phone lock).....
If it is network lock then following sites will help you. But they charge something for their service.
or for free..... try out following methods... (these methods will not work on some mobiles.)
Method 1:

1 - Switch ON your Samsung S8300 with a NOT ACCEPTED SIM Card.
2 - Samsung S8300 will ask for "Password".
3 - Enter the Unlock Code.

OR (if the Samsung S8300 shows "Insert Correct SIM Card")

Method 2:

1 - Switch ON your Samsung S8300 with a NOT ACCEPTED SIM Card.
2 - Don't bother about what's being displayed on your Samsung S8300.
3 - Compose : #0111*CODE#.

NOT ACCEPTED: We mean, to use a sim card from a network other than the network your Samsung S8300 is locked to.
CODE: Its the unique Unlock Code for your Samsung S8300.

If method 2 does not work, you can try method 2 again but this time without any SIM card on your Samsung S8300.

    my network provider doesnt support this model phone as it is no longer able to be purchased here.

What is the Pin code for samsung GT-S6010

How To Check Which Lock Needs Unlocking On Your Samsung Phone:
  1. Turn on your phone without a sim inserted
  2. Type * # 7 4 6 5 6 2 5 # this will display which lock is active
    (An easier way to remember this is * # S I M L O C K # )
  3. Doing this will display a screen similar to the example below, ON means that particular lock is locked, OFF means it's not locked :

    Network Lock [ON]
    Network Subset Lock [OFF]
    SP Lock [ON]
    CP Lock [OFF]
If only the Network lock is displayed saying ON then you will only need to use the NCK code with the instructions below.

If you see the Subset lock value as ON then you will need the SCK code and if you see the SP lock value as ON you will need the SPCK code.

How to enter specific unlock codes
  • Once you know which lock(s) is active, you can now enter the specific code for it, as follows:

    If your phone says the NET lock is ON then you need to do this without a SIM inserted: # 7 4 6 5 6 2 5 * 6 3 8 * NCKCODE #

    If your phone says the SP lock is ON then you need to do this without a SIM inserted: # 7 4 6 5 6 2 5 * 7 7 * SPCKCODE #

    If your phone says the Subset lock is ON then you need to do this without a SIM inserted: # 7 4 6 5 6 2 5 * 7 8 2 * SCKCODE #
Once all locks are OFF, your phone is unlocked.

How do you set a passcode for a Sony ericsson j108a so that only I can use my phone

You can stop unauthorized use of your J108a phone by activating phone lock protection.

After activating, you will be asked to enter your phone lock code every time you restart the phone.

The default phone lock code is 0000 (zero-zero-zero-zero). It is recommended that you change this to any four-to-eight-digit personal code.

Note: It is important that you remember your new code. If you forget it, you need to take your phone
to your local Sony Ericsson retailer.

To activate the phone lock:

1. Select Menu > Settings > General > PIN codes > Phone protection > Protection.
2. Select 'On' if you want to enter a lock code every time you start the phone, or select 'Automatic' if you want the code to be entered only when the phone restarts after a new SIM card is inserted.
3. Enter the phone lock code (0000 by default) and select OK.

To unlock the phone:

• When 'Phone locked' appears, enter your phone lock code and select OK.

To change the phone lock code:

1. Select Menu > Settings > General > PIN codes > Phone protection > Change code.
2. Enter the old code and select OK.
3. Enter the new code and select OK.
4. Repeat the code and select OK.

This solution was taken from Sony Ericsson J108a user guide which can be downloaded at:
