Special Code/Service Provider Lock Code:
This code is required to allow a phone locked to a particular network's SIM cards to be used with a SIM card from another network. Orange and T-mobile lock handsets in this way, though O2 and Vodafone are beginning to lock PAYG and WAP handsets. The unlock code varies from individual handset to handset.
This is not a security code, but it works like one! To help combat mobile phone thefts, the networks share a database of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of mobile phones that have been reported stolen. Once a phone is on this list, it will not be allowed to use any of the networks.
This can be a risk if you buy a second-hand phone, because if it has been stolen, or if an unscrupulous seller makes an insurance claim after selling, the phone you bought in good faith may be permanently disabled.
Be very careful to check the source of a second-hand phone!

SOURCE: restriction code for 6300


Before trying anything else, contact your service provider and ask for an unlock code.

Usually, if you've been a customer of theirs for some time, they will provide you with an unlock code for free. This is, by far, the best way to get your phone unlocked.

Download software to generate the unlocking code. Software is available on some websites for free and some pay websites that also offer support if things go wrong.

See external links below.

Find the Serial number of the cell phone, also known as your IMEI number.

Using the software you have downloaded, enter in your Manufacturer (which is in this case Nokia), your model number, and your IMEI number.

Also enter your country and the Network. Calculate the code, this may be different depending on which software you are using. If your phone is the Nokia 6300phone, select the model 6300, they are the same phone.


Remove the SIM card from your Nokia phone.

This is typically done by removing the back cover of the phone and removing the battery and sliding the card out. Put the battery back in and power the phone on.

You will see a message "Insert SIM Card".

Enter all of the characters you see in your code, including the # symbols.

To get a 'p' press * 3 times, to get a '+' press the * key 2 times, to get a 'w' press the * key 4 times.

Disregard any spaces in the code.

In order to unlock your phone you generally need to enter only one code.

Start with the first one. If your phone is not unlocked by typing the first code (MCC+MNC), use code "7" (Multilock)

Once you have finished entering a code that works you should see a message that says "SIM is not restricted" or "Restriction off" message depending on your model.

If not, try entering another code. Message "Cannot undo restrictions" means the phone is "hard-locked" and cannot be unlocked by code.


Unlocking only applies to GSM phones, phones using other cellular technologies, cannot be unlocked without special software and hardware.

Switch off the phone. Hold the keys "3", "*" and "Call" and switch the phone on. Keep the buttons held down till you see the word "Formatting..." on the screen. Make sure that the battery is full charged before you attempt this. This should reset the phone lock code.


Attempting to unlock your phone is done at your own risk.

Although unlocking your phone is legal, some cell phone operators might choose to void your warranty should you unlock your phone (then again, some cell phone operators won't mind).

Most phones only allow you to try a certain number of unlock tries, Nokia phones have a limit of 5 tries.

After that, the phone becomes "hard-locked", meaning it cannot be unlocked without using special equipment.

Most of the newer phones will not work with the codes generated by the free unlock programs.

Good Luck.

My phone is restricted

If your Nokia phone gives you a message saying "RESTRICTED", shut down your phone, remove the simcard, power on phone and perform the "CODE ENTRY" instructions below.

-If your phone doesn't say "RESTRICTED", make sure your phone has a simcard from any other provider (other the the one the phone is locked to) and perform the "CODE ENTRY" instructions below.

-If you entered a bad code too many times and get the error "NOT ALLOWED", then your counter is blocked and only a cable method will unlock your phone (If the code above does not work the 1st time do not keep trying it as you only have 3 tries).

-You will received a code that looks something like this: #pw+454545454567715+1#
-Every digit, symbol, number and letter that you receieved must be entered without any spaces. Follow the directions below to find put how to get the # p w and +

P appears after pressing 3 times the button ( * )
W appears after pressing 4 times the button ( * )
+ appears after pressing 2 times the button ( * )

- after entering your unlock code the phone should show "SIM Restriction Off". Youg Nokia is now unlocked.
