    Usually you can either call your carrier and let them do that, or you get a program and input you IMEI and some other info then input the resulting code into your phone and restart it.

    Go here and pay someone is probably the best way

    nokia has an online IMEI calculator

    moto's you either need the unlock code and a new sim, or reflash the firmware to an unlocked version

    use it on another carriers network. (assuming that carrier uses GSM)
