Wait. Which company is the device locked to? You will need to obtain the unlocking code from the carrier which the handset is locked to.

In short you will need to call 125 8881 and provide your device serial (IMEI) to Boost Customer Care. You can obtain your IMEI by typing *#06# into your device. Hope this helps Smiley Happy

Re: unlock network code

There are some 3rd party unlocking website service, and Google search should be able to help you find one for your phone model. Be still prepared to pay for the service though. Extremely rare to find one for free.

Many or those third party websites are scams.

Agreed. Many are.
I suggest either wearing the direct unlocking cost, or buying an Optus prepaid phone instead (will likely be cheaper that $100 anyway).
