How to enter the unlock code Samsung “Network Locked”

Some carriers in some countries apply a certain type of network lock on the phones they sell, a type of lock that, when you enter a sim card from a different carrier, your phone will only read “Network Lock”, instead of “SIM Network Unlock PIN”, and will not have a dedicated field where to insert the code.
