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.
