There are no particular ways of removing existing codes on a mobile phone unless you take it to the repair shop. There is a process called flashing carried out by phone repairers this wipes out every single information on the device. but first you can try the factory codes for the unlock which are 00000 or 12345.
Also there is a force reset code #*7337# but if you use this there is a probability of the phone having other problems like network and browsing later.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

There is no way that you can use a magic key to open any and all locks. You have to get the firmware reinstalled to achieve it. And you lose all data unless you are taking backups regularly.

Forgotten privacy lock password

You should be able to reset this by turning on the phone without the SIM card inside, then entering *2767*2878# and waiting for the phone to reset. Once it starts up, the code should be gone from the phone and you should be able to get into it again.
