Probably ur handset has its FIXED SIM. If u want to use other SIM only then this problem may arise.

Either use ur fixed sim or
UNLOCK PASSWORD ur handset, which u never metioned, from a reputed mechanic.

My 6300nokia mobile phone was not recognizing sim card


Hi, have you tried using different Sim Card to check if the issue is related to Sim Card.? These issues happen due to Sim Card chip has damaged inside. If the same error displayed even after using working Sim Card, try to insert properly or the Phone's Sim Card Slot pins have not conducting properly to the Sim Card, in this case Service might be required to the Cellphone.

Unlock my nokia 6300


I have a UK 6300 and having tried a different sim have the same problem.  I rang vodafone (our service provider) and they gave me the unlock code.  Apparently it is specific to each phone so you can't use a generic code. I am trying a turbo sim as I would love an iphone and the 6300 is the only sim locked phone we have to prove the method works.  Unfortunately the turbo sim I have doesn't, even the replacement.  If you know who the original service provider is (sometimes comes up on boot) it is worth giving them a call.

Unlocking nokia 6300


How to Enter Unlock Codes on Nokia phones:
  1. Switch ON your phone without SIM Card
  2. Compose #pw+yourcode+1# ("yourcode" is meant to be the actual unlock code we gave you)
ie. #pw+000000000000000+1#

*** IF THE CODE IS REJECTED, DO NOT TRY AGAIN. ***

Substitute the 1 at the end with 7.

So 2nd time try: #PW+YOURCODE+7#

ie. #pw+000000000000000+7#

The letter P appears after you quickly press 3 times the button star ( * )
The letter W appears after you quickly press 4 times the button star ( * )
The letter + appears after you quickly press 2 times the button star ( * )

The phone shows "SIM Restriction Off" and is unlocked!

IF YOU HAVE TRIED TO PUT IN AN INCORRECT CODE 3 OR MORE TIMES PREVIOUSLY & YOU GET PHONE RESTRICTED SIGN, THEN YOUR DEVICE IS HARD LOCKED AND MUST BE UNLOCKED WITH WITH A CABLE AND HARDWARE BOX.
