These phones are not unlocked with codes, it is done remotely via the Apple servers, and there are two methods you can try.

First,insert a SIM card from a different network (make sure the SIM is not PIN protected).

Then start your phone and turn on WiFi. The phone should download a small software update, and then it will be unlocked - it will work on any network.

If that method isn't successful...

Still with the same new SIM, connect the phone to your computer and launch iTunes. The small software update should be downloaded and installed, and the phone should be unlocked.

Sorry I fail to see how the above will work if the iPhone is locked to a Network Provider.

The only reliable way is to contact your Provider and they will in turn contact Apple and request the IMEI of the device to be unlocked thus enabling you to use any sim.

click here only thing the above will do is download a Carrier Update but your device needs to be Network unlocked first.
