If you find a provider that still offers Analog service, they can
unlock the phone. They have to remove the phone electronics module
from the trunk and use a special connector on it. I had this done
with a V8 Quattro a few years ago. That's the same phone.
Also, there's a 4 digit code in addition to the 6 digit code.
It usually defaults to something like 1234. It can be used to
reset the 6 digit code. I'd have to find a manual for more details.
