You can get the security password from your service provider at free of cost. If your contract period is complete you can ask your cellular operator for the unlock code. But, they do make it very difficult for you to get the code. You can also visit http://www.unlock-zone.com/ and can see different options there to get unlock code for a price. Choose any price appropriate for you.
Could you please clarify if you mean unblocked or unlocked? If the handset is blocked, barred or blacklisted you would need to contact the originating network of the phone to request the handset be unblocked. There is no other legal way you can unblock a mobile phone.
If the handset is simply network locked, you would contact your network service provider and request the unlock code (there may be a charge for this) or visit an online unlock code supplier (link below). There is no free solution for unlocking the Nokia 6300.
Your handset is most likely 'Network' locked and you are trying to use a different operator Sim card. If you are using a different SIM but on the same network, then your handset is 'SIM' locked to only operate with the original SIM and number.
If you are out of contract, the original Mobile phone provider where the phone was originally purchased might provide you with the required 'unlock' restriction code to free you device.
- Get your handset network lock removed by requesting the code from O2 if you are out of contract.
- Get it unlock by a third party unlocker (for a small fee - watch out for sharks)
- This last suggestion is my preferred low/no risk option especially if you are still under contract: use a hardware solution in the form of a 'universal unlock sim adapter' (you can get them on Ebay pretty cheaply - you do not need an expensive version for the 6300). You will need to trim your GSM SIMM to fit this on top of this adapter.
